Today’s innovative real money slot machines continue to raise the bar from an entertainment standpoint. Both land-based and online casinos offer games that may be really fun to play. However, the main attraction of any real money slots is massive progressive jackpot. Nobody plays slots to lose money, but that is all part of the game. Avid slots players are always in search of that one big hit that can change their lives forever.
One gaming industry leader lives by that very mantra; generating life-changing wins. Microgaming has gained a reputation for developing games that achieve that goal through its progressive jackpot network. A recent post on the company website details just how much life-changing money was paid out in 2018.

According to this post, the company’s slots jackpots in 2018 added up to 154,954,249 in euros. Based in Isle of Man, Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network put seven-figure wins in the hands of nine lucky players over the previous 12 months. These nine jackpots alone added up to more than 40 million in Euros.
Leading the way was the progressive slots game Mega Moolah. Going back to Sept. 28 of 2018, a player won 18,915,872.81 euros on a jackpot at Grand Mondail Casino. This jackpot was won playing a mobile device. This set a brand new payout record for the highly popular progressive online slot. This eclipsed a former Guinness World Record held by Microgaming for one of its online progressive slots jackpots. Back in 2015, an online slots player pocketed 17,879,645.12 euros. This win became known as the ‘largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game.’
The Biggest Payouts In 2018
This might have been the biggest payout in 2018, but there were several other noteworthy jackpot hits. The first big jackpot of the year was last January when a player laid claim to 2,424,117.20 euros at Zodiac Casino. The following month a Royal Vegas Casino player hit a 4,769,344.11 euro jackpot on Mega Moolah. Just nine days later on March 8 at Captain Cook’s Casino, the third big jackpot won totaled 4,365,843.63 euros.
Keeping the streak alive for one more month, another Grand Mondial Casino player pocketed 4,603,056.5 euros on April 19. The slots cooled a bit in May, but heated right back up with the start of summer. On June 24, Jackpot City Casino paid out almost five million euros on a progressive hit.
Microgaming progressive slots game is called Major Millions
Another highly popular Microgaming progressive slots game is called Major Millions and this five-reel machine was responsible for a pair seven-figure payouts in 2018. A jackpot of 1,896,616.91 was claimed in early February at Betsafe. In late August at RedKings Casino, the progressive yielded a jackpot worth 1,515,371.53 in pounds.
Indeed, 2018 is a great year to remember. Additionally, Microgaming is not about to start resting on its laurels. Just two days into the New Year, a lucky 23Red Casino patron walked away with big money. More specifically, he wins 1,162,021.64 in euros on a Major Millions jackpot. There is still plenty of money to be won. According to the company post, the current Mega Moolah jackpot has eclipsed 17 million euros as of Jan. 17.
