Microgaming recently announced that players have received over € 150 million in jackpot winnings in 2018. In total, for all the years at that time, they paid out 980 million euros and just a little was not enough to reach the mark of 1 billion euros.
But after the 13.3 million Euro jackpot hit by Mega Moolah, the developer announced that now the total payout jackpot is over 1 billion. The win was recorded on January 30, and the amount reached a record high of 20,057,734. It is a pity that, apparently, it turned out not to be euros or pounds, but Canadian dollars. The result was only 13.3 million euros instead of a possible absolute record.
The latest winner is the 68th millionaire at Microgaming casinos. Based on the numbers given by the developer, progressive jackpots are now much more popular than they used to be. Over the past three years, 30 of these lucky 68 have become millionaires.
