Which Microgaming slots offer mega-sized jackpots?
We all know that when it comes to jackpot size, Microgaming's Mega Moolah slot is the king of the progressives. Having recently seen a brand-new World Record online slot jackpot winner, who took home over €18.9 million, the jackpot has now reset to a smaller amount, although its popularity remains as high as ever.
We also know that there are a host of other top progressive jackpot games from Microgaming that also offer sizeable jackpot prizes, notably Major Millions, King Cashalot and Treasure Nile when it comes to slot and the likes of Poker Ride, Caribbean Draw Poker Progressive and Cyberstud Progressive when it comes to card-based progressive games and the fabulous Roulette Royale progressive which has a progressive jackpot now approaching £300,000.
However, it is not just the world of progressive jackpot games where players who enjoy Microgaming slots can land some massive jackpot prizes. There are a small number of slot games that can offer prizes of over 100,000 coins, some even offer prizes of over 1,000,000 coins and a select few break through the 2,000,000 coin barrier.
Now when we say coins, we know that this can mean a smaller amount than one pound, euro or dollar. If you are playing a game with a coin value of 0.01 for example, and you win a 1,000,000 coin prize, then your actual prize is worth £10,000. However, on many of these games you can scale up your coin to be worth far more and when you do, some of the prizes on offer can almost compare to the prizes you get playing Mega Moolah!
So what are these slots to target from Microgaming? We will explore some of the best options below.
Immortal Romance is a slot which took the structure of another Microgaming classic, Thunderstruck II, developed a new theme around that structure and then upped the ante when it comes to the size of the jackpot prize on offer.
It is a 243 Ways to Win slot and the minimum bet you can make is 0.30, with the maximum bet totalling 60.00. You can win over 3 million coins in this game alone, which if you were to play for a bet of around 0.90 per spin, would amount to a figure around the 200,000 mark in your chosen currency. With four different bonus games to work through and a vampire/love story theme, Immortal Romance is less a pain in the neck and more an opportunity to win a stellar amount of money from a single spin.
Based on the original Thunderstruck slot, Thunderstruck II is one of the biggest and best Microgaming slots of all time. With a jackpot of around 2.5 million coins, as well as four different bonus games which you can unlock as you progress through the game, this 5-reel, 243-ways to win slot isn't a massively high variance game either, with a RTP rate of between 96% and 97%. It is this factor, allied to the storming game-play, fabulous bonuses and of course, that huge jackpot prize fund that makes Thunderstruck II one of the most popular Microgaming slots of all time.
Break Da Bank Again
With a jackpot of 375,000 coins, Break Da Bank Again is the sequel to the enormously popular Break Da Bank slot and this big jackpot game has proven to be a smash hit success with slot players, regularly appearing as one of Microgaming's most played games during the month. It's a relatively simple 5-reel slot with just 9 lines in play and can be played from just 0.09 a spin up to 22.50 per spin. With up to 25 Free Spins available and the possibility of landing a 5x multiplier, it is easy to see why this relatively recent release has had so many Microgaming fans rushing to play it every week.
This unusual 5x5 reel slot has one of the largest, if not the largest possible coin jackpot of any Microgaming slot. With 100 pay lines in play, your minimum spin amount is £1 and you can increase that up to £20 per spin, but the potential is there to win a staggering six million, yes SIX million coins, if you can hit that right combination across the reels. Other than that, this game also boasts a 15 Free Spins bonus round with a 3x multiplier as well as Wilds and a Gamble feature, although I can't see too many people opting to hit the gamble button if their 1.00 spin metamorphoses into a massive jackpot payout!
The original Thunderstruck slot may not have the jackpot to match its sequel, but the original game was still a huge hit. Playable from just 0.18 per spin, this 9-pay line slot with 5 reels boasted a jackpot prize of 150,000 coins and with 15 Free Spins with a 3x multiplier also available, you can see why this Norse-inspired game proved to be the inspiration behind one of Microgaming's most successful slots franchises.
Hang on to your vines, as we bring you the Tarzan slot, which comes with a staggering 1,100,000 coin jackpot prize. This 50 line 5x4 reel slot has medium volatility, so it will reward more patient play and you can bet from just 0.40 per spin up the maximum bet of 40.00. There's a bonus wheel game where you can win Free Spins, Stacked Wilds, and access to a picking bonus, while the Free Spins bonus offers a dozen Free Spins complete with Stacked Wilds and Collapsing Reels in play.
Lucky Little Gods
Released in 2018, this recent game from Microgaming has medium variance and 243 lines in play across the five reels. Based on a Japanese Kawaii theme, you can get the reels spinning for just 0.30 per spin up to a maximum bet of 300.00 per spin, which makes this a rare game suited to the very high roller. A jackpot of 129,900 coins is also likely to attract plenty of players, alongside a Free Spins bonus round comprising of 8 Free Spins but where up to two reels will turn Wild on each spin.
As you can see, Microgaming boasts a number of games that offer a sizeable jackpot prize as well as a number of top progressive jackpot slots, which is one of the reasons they are one of the most popular slot development companies you can find online today.
