Microgaming can easily boast with the largest progressive jackpot network in the world. Their jackpots are diverse, unique and exciting, and most importantly, well-known for climbing to very attractive heights!
Let’s take a look at some of Microgaming’s most popular available progressive jackpot games.
The African safari-themed Mega Moolah tops our list as one of the most loved and lucrative progressives Microgaming has to offer. The video slot consists of 5 reels and 25 paylines and offers four different level jackpots; Mega, Major, Minor and Mini. Other game features include a wild which can double wins when substituting, and scatters that trigger 15 free spins. Access to a chance at winning one of the jackpots happen completely at random when the four-tiered wheel of fortune appears for the player to take a spin at. Cash prizes range from 10.00 at the Mini level, 100.00 at the Minor level, 10 000 at the Major level, and at least one million at the Mega level.
Mega Moolah delivers Mega jackpot wins around every 9 weeks with payouts typically hitting the $5 million mark.
Another favourite in the Mega Moolah series of progressive slots is the Egyptian-themed Mega Moolah Isis. It sports the same 5-reel, 25 payline mechanics as well as Mini, Minor, Major and Mega jackpots. Other special features include wild and scatter symbols, rounds of 30 free spins with 6x multipliers, and a gamble game where players can double or quadruple their winnings. The jackpot wheel is triggered at random and offers the same odds per the four levels as mentioned in Mega Moolah.
The military-themed Major Millions is available in three exciting versions – MegaSpin, 5-reels, and the classic 3-reel slot. All the versions feed into the same jackpot so players can go with whichever game they feel most lucky in. The progressive jackpot starts at a very attractive $250 000 and pays out when the right number of mega million logos appear on a max bet line.
On average Major Millions pays out $600K+ approximately every six weeks.
King Cashalot is a 5-reel, 9 payline medieval-themed slot that offers a minimum progressive jackpot of $100,000. Additional features of the bright and vibrant game include the Treasure Bonus round which is set off whenever three dragon bonus symbols appear on the middle reels, as well as scatter symbols and wild multipliers which boost wins even more. King Cashalot is also the first ever game to offer a “pick-until-collect” bonus game where players can choose to take a gamble and forfeit their winnings in order to try for a bigger jackpot.
The progressive jackpot is won when five wild King symbols appear on the 9th payline and the max bet of 5 coins per line has been wagered.
Historically King Cashalot pays out in the region of $650K once per year.
Ancient Egypt is the inspiration behind the colourful 5-reel, 9 payline Treasure Nile progressive video slot. Game features include a pyramids wild symbol and scarab beetle scatter. Wins are formed in both directions – left to right, and right to left. There are no bonus games or free spins available.
Players will trigger the progressive jackpot when landing five King Tut symbols on the 9th payline at the maximum coin value.
Treasure Nile seeds at $40,000 and a jackpot averaging $80 000 is won approximately every 10 days.
Classic and fruit-theme fans will feel right at home with Fruit Fiesta. This progressive slot was originally designed with only three reels but Microgaming have since made a 5-reels X 15 paylines version available that feeds into the same jackpot pool.
Features includes a high hit frequency scatter and the Wild game logo. The lucky sevens and triple bar are the two highest paying symbols. Coin values are fixed to one per payline but players can adjust the number of active paylines they wish to bet on. To win the jackpot however, all 15 paylines must be in play at the maximum bet amount, and five wild symbols must appear on the 15th payline. Should the five wilds appear on any of the other paylines, you can still walk away with a decent 9000 coins.
Fruit Fiesta delivers a $24K+ payday on average, every two weeks.
