Online Slots Player Wins £15 million
The WowPot jackpot was triggered on 14 April by the popular game ‘Book of Atem’, a fairly recent release by Microgaming. The lucky anonymous player only spun for a very small amount of £0.80 before winning the lifechanging prize. Microgaming has confirmed that the winner will receive all of their winnings in one single payment.
A Phenomenal Win
In a statement on behalf of Microgaming, John Coleman, the Chief Executive Officer, said that this was truly a phenomenal online slots win. He added that this was the firm’s third largest ever pay-out and confirmed that it is the first Mega to ever drop on WowPot. Mr Coleman then extended his congratulations to the winner, as well as to 32Red and Kindred Group, who have been partners with Microgaming for several years. He also thanked All41 Studios, the company that developed ‘Book of Atem: WowPot’, as well as Alchemy Gaming for playing a key role in building the jackpot. Mr Coleman concluded by saying that he hopes for many more wins together in the future.
Neil Banbury, Kindred Group’s UK General Manger, said that the company is overjoyed for the winner. He, in turn, thanked Microgaming for delivering the industry’s leading range of progressive jackpot online slots.
The WowPot Network
The WowPot network was launched in 2020 alongside the Wheel of Wishes slot. The progressive jackpot starts at a seed of €2 million. A portion of each bet placed on network games is contributed to the jackpot prize. Since the launch, the network has paid out over €23 million across all jackpot tiers.
WowPot is one of Microgaming’s two well-known jackpots. The developer also oversees the Mega Moolah progressive network, which currently holds the world record for the biggest online slots win.
In October 2015, a lucky British soldier won a whopping €17,879,645 on Mega Moolah network. However, another win has since eclipsed this. In 2018, one player walked away with €18,915,872.15. This win is not yet recognised as the world’s biggest online slots win as it has not yet been entered into the Guinness World Records.
