Big Year For Microgaming Online Slots Jackpots

Keri Cairns - 28-12-2020

The name Mega Moolah is synonymous with massive progressive jackpot payouts, and for very good reason. To date, over €1.1 billion has been paid out by the online slot’s network, taking into account the biggest amounts, as well as the smaller €10,000 or more mini-jackpots.

Of course, 2020 has been an incredible year in this regard, with numerous multi-million online slot payouts going to extremely lucky players. All in all, Microgaming’s Mega Moolah brand has once again lived up to its reputation.

As far back as 5th April 2020 the big amounts started to roll out. An astonishing €10,735,716.84 was awarded to a player at the Jackpot City site, changing the reel spinner’s life forever. But this was just the start of a staggering year.

The Hits Keep Coming

The next big hit came just a month later, on 8th May 2020, awarded via Mega Moolah: Atlantean Treasure. The title had been launched earlier in the year, 25th February 2020, showing that it doesn’t always take long before a major score is made.

The payout amount was smaller at €7,784,425.63, but still more than enough to change a life. As always, Microgaming paid the cash out in a lump sum, as opposed to annual, or monthly payments, as seen by some other online slot progressive jackpot networks.

This time the winner was playing at River Belle casino, and whoever that lucky player was, they are likely still living large, and will be for the foreseeable future.

But the big payouts for the year were just getting started, with another just around the corner.

A Millionaire A Month

20th July saw yet another massive progressive jackpot millionaire being created. The online slot was Major Millions, and the site Spin Casino. A simple €3 wager scored a staggering €1,650,382.89.

Interestingly enough, a Microgaming spokesperson at the time explained that it had been the 7th millionaire made by Major Millions for the year. This means that, on average, a million is paid out by the game per month. Similar amounts were awarded on 14th March, 12th June.

Then, on 17th August 2020, yet another earth shattering amount. This time €14,239,532.84 was grabbed by a Swedish player at, the biggest ever for the country, setting a new world record.

With time left before the end of the year, there is still plenty of time remaining for more 7 and 8 figure online slot jackpots to be paid out. The only question is; who will be next, and how much will the payout be?
