Microgaming Mega MoolaheGaming software developer Microgaming is in the news again and not for simply being one of the most recognised brands in the online gambling arena, or even for the large number of world class games they are able to produce on a consistent basis. Rather they are making waves for the immensity of their progressive jackpot totals! 

An important part of the Microgaming arsenal is its suite of progressive online games, which at the time of this article being written were sitting at well over €6 million – and counting!

The secret behind these mega jackpots is found in how progressive jackpots are calculated. A small portion of each bet placed on various games across all of the casinos that carry the game are placed into one prize pot. This jackpot grows until one lucky winner lines up the perfect symbol combination and walks away with the entire caboodle. 

At present the largest Microgaming progressive jackpot is African-safari themed Mega Moolah with an average winning value of more than €2.8million. Also popular are King Cashalot (featuring a greedy king storing up treasures) and Major Millions (a military-themed game played as either a 3-reel classic machine or a 15-payline video slot). Your jackpot stays the same no matter which way you choose to play.

Prefer a progressive jackpot that isn’t a video slot? You’re in luck. Microgaming also offers Roulette Royale (a standard single zero European roulette table featuring a progressive side bet), Cyberstud Poker (their in-house version of the very popular Caribbean Stud Poker game) and finally Poker Ride (a standard table poker game which has you winning big if you’re dealt a royal flush).

You can expect more and more players to try their hand at progressive jackpot games now that the combined jackpots have soared to over €6 million as a mega payout is imminent! Don’t get left behind, try your luck today at JackpotCity Casino!
