A privately-held iGaming software company based in the Isle of Man, Microgaming, has officially revealed the total progressive jackpot payout since January 1st – August 1st, 2020, totalling exactly €115,418,328.

The latest big hit occurred on 20 July 2020, when a certain player managed to cash in a whopping €1,650,382.89 on Major Millions at Spin Casino and become the seventh millionaire on the network so far this year.

If perceived from a different angle, this occurrence equates to one millionaire a month on average! The UK-based player, who remains anonymous for the time being, struck a life-changing sum only a month after registering with the operator, ultimately pocketing €1.6 million from a €3 wager.

As with all payouts on Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network, the winner will receive the entire prize as a lump sum and not in monthly installments.

Third Seven-Figure Jackpot on Major Millions

According to the software studio, the latest win on Major Millions marks the third seven-figure jackpot generated on the game this year alone, following a €1,650,910.31 prize on 14 March and a €1,203,349.99 jackpot on 12 June. Other memorable payouts this year include four multi-million euro jackpot wins on Microgaming’s iconic Mega Moolah slot.

There is also a trio of wins in May across Atlantean Treasures™: Mega Moolah and Absolootly Mad™: Mega Moolah. Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network keeps growing in 2020 thanks to the increase of new progressive titles and a wealth of life-changing wins. More than 550+ players have pocketed €10,000 or more in the previous period on the studio’s fresh releases.

“We are absolutely thrilled for our winner, who has become a millionaire overnight. Microgaming’s Major Millions has always been a popular game and we are delighted that the new 5-reel version is proving similarly so with our customers,” said a UK spokesperson at Spin Casino.

Among the upcoming titles on the network are also Book of Atem™: WowPot from All41 Studios, Sisters of Oz™: WowPot by Triple Edge Studios, Fortunium Gold™: Mega Moolah developed by Stormcraft Studios, Juicy Joker™: Mega Moolah (JFTW) and African Legends™ from Slingshot Studios.

John Coleman, chief executive at the Isle of Man based company said about the historic success in 2020:

“With total lifetime payouts exceeding €1.2 billion, Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network has had an outstanding year to date, driven by a number of new game releases, including Wheel of Wishes, Atlantean Treasures and Absolootly Mad. We look forward to building on this momentum over the coming months, hosting more feature-rich games that feed into our leading jackpots, which have paid out over €115 million across 2,571,389 jackpots so far this year - that's more than eight payouts every minute on average!”

Powerful Gods and Mythical Creatures

This week, the supplier has also decided to unveil a brand new collection of games scheduled for launch in August. Apart from rebooting its blockbuster from an earlier phase of development, Break Away, Microgaming is releasing a compilation of fantasy games with gods and unique mythical creatures.

One of the first August releases is Goldaur Guardians by Alchemy Gaming, followed by Wolf Howl from Just For The Win, scheduled for August 18th.
