It's not just Mega Moolah that pays out the big jackpots
It's been a little while since the Mega Moolah jackpot last paid out a couple of winners within the space of a day and since then the jackpot has grown to over £4.6 million at the time of writing.
However, it would be wrong to think that because the Mega Moolah top jackpot prize has not been paid out since, that it has been all quiet on the winners front across Microgaming's platform of progressive jackpot games.
Let's now bring you up to speed with some of the other big money winners that have landed huge prizes playing some of the games in the Microgaming network.
Treasure Nile players win NZ$40,000 and 88,977 prize
At the end of March, a new New Zealand based casino Jonny Jackpot Online announced that one of its players had become the latest big winner on the popular Treasure Nile progressive jackpot slot. The player, known as Rochelle C, won a NZ$40,000 jackpot playing the game.
"Jonny Jackpot wishes to congratulate Rochelle C of New Zealand for the incredible jackpot win of $40,000 on the Treasure Nile Slot," stated the CEO of Jonny Jackpot Online Casino, David G.
"This incredible jackpot of $40,000 marks the beginning of a list of big winners that should grow steadily over the next few months."
The win was a big event for Jonny Jackpot as it is a casino that only became available online in December this year and of course, every new casino likes to hear of one of its customers landing a massive cash prize.
Treasure Nile is a game that has been around for a while and it is a popular game for Microgaming fans. Playable from 0.45 up to 4.50 (though to win the progressive you do need to make the maximum bet) the slot offers a number of different cash prizes and the ability to win the massive progressive jackpot prize if you can land five of the Tutankhamun symbols on the ninth pay line. Land the same symbols on any other of the pay lines and your prize is 6,000 coins.
Not to be outdone, just a few days following Rochelle C's win in New Zealand, the jackpot on the Treasure Nile slot had risen to around 88,977 when another, as yet unknown player, landed the prize when playing on the 3rd April 2019.
As this winner is still very new, no details have yet emerged on who the winner is, what currency they were playing in or what casino they were playing at, but it does go to show that Microgaming jackpots can be won at any time by any player anywhere in the world.
And if you think it is only slot games that offer mighty progressive jackpot payouts, then another win in March showed that not to be the case.
Microgaming's Fish Party Sit & Go Poker Progressive won for over €117,000
Although their slot games may be more famous for awarding progressive jackpots to players, Microgaming also offer progressive jackpots in other games. In July 2016, the company launched a new poker game called Fish Party Sit N Go, which boasted a progressive jackpot prize which could be triggered at random and shared between the players playing at the tables at the time.
The jackpot has been won 30 times since the games release and that 30th occasion came back in March this year, when the jackpot was triggered for a prize of €117,341.17.
Players on the Microgaming poker network can join the game from a number of different casinos and so it was that on March 29th, one player from NordicBet and two from CoolBet were fortunate enough to be drawn together at the table which triggered the huge jackpot win.
With such a large amount to play for, you can forgive the players for perhaps adopting a more cautious approach than the usual low-stakes Sit and Go games but at the end of it, it was Coolbet player "miika295' from Finland who took home the lions share of the prize of €58,670.59, while NordicBet player "Stoffeloco" earned second spot and a prize of €35,202.35. The final player, "Jalihi" still pocketed €23,468.23 for his efforts at the table.
Since its release the 30 winners of the progressive jackpot on the Fish Party Sit & Go game have took home in total over €1.5 million in prize money. The jackpot was won 14 times alone in 2017 and the biggest ever jackpot prize awarded to share between three players was a prize of €317,849.78 in October 2018.
Major Millons pays out £355,740.86 prize in March
If there is one other slot game that is famous for paying out prizes that can often approach and sometimes exceed the magical £1 million mark, then it is the Major Millions slot. Whether you play the 3-reel or 5-reel version of the game, your chances of triggering the progressive jackpot for 3.00 per spin remain the same and for one lucky player in March, that choice to play would prove to be a wise one.
Although details about the winner are not known, we do know that the player took home a fabulous 355,740.86 prize, which is more than enough for them to go out and enjoy themselves later that evening when the realisation that they had just won a huge amount of cash, had finally sunk in.
Cash Splash and Mega Moolah Major Jackpots also triggered
A quick glance at the winners page on MegaMoolah.com reveals that Mega Moolah has not been exactly quiet since its last Mega jackpot winner in March. Since then the slot has continued to reward players with regular wins of its Major jackpot, which can often result in a prize of tens of thousands of pounds.
There have been several wins of the jackpot prize of between 17,000 and up to 75,273.87 over he last few weeks and in addition to that, the Cash Splash slot has also been awarding prizes of a similar amount, up to a maximum of 32,871.54, which was won recently at Luxury Casino.
So as you can see, just because there is no Mega Moolah top jackpot prize winners in the last few weeks does not mean that the Microgaming progressive network is not paying out!
