However, the sum that totally eclipsed this life-changing figure was triggered by another player’s mobile device at Grand Mondial, three years later. The new payout record is in ranks of €18,915,872.81 but it’s certainly not the only jackpot prize on the network…

The winning spree continued in February, when another fortunate slot enthusiast scored massive €4,769,344.11 at Royal Vegas… but nine days later, Captain Cook’s Casino celebrated with its multi-millionaire member, who ever so flawlessly bagged scorching €4,365,843.63 and marked another milestone for the network.

Following this extraordinary run, is yet another punter from Grand Mondial, whose impressive €4,603,056.85 cha-ching moment happened on Thursday, April 19th. Only two months later, on June 24th, striking a mind-blowing win has also been confirmed by a member of Jackpot City, who nailed whopping €4,931,205.46 and made a nice introduction for…

… two more wins on Major Millions, a 5-reel slot that cashed out €1,896,616.91 on February 2nd to a Betsafe player and another €1,515,371.53 on August 22nd to a punter from RedKings.

It is remarkable to see total payouts nearing €1 billion, which really highlights the strength of the network, and we are excited to be working on a series of developments aimed at taking our progressive jackpot offering to the next level.”
