Yet Another Microgaming Progressive Jackpot Network
In addition to their Mega Moolah jackpot, the WowPot! jackpot is one of Microgaming’s best known jackpot networks. Although Mega Moolah still enjoys a lot more popularity internationally, the WowPot! seeds at a minimum amount of € 2 million whilst at Mega Moolah this amounts to € 1 million. For both jackpot pokies there is no limit on how big they can grow. Like in Mega Moolah, players will encounter four jackpots that are part of the WowPot! network: the Mini, Minor, Major, and the WowPot. The mini jackpot always seeds at € 10 and the minor jackpot seeds at a minimum of € 100. Life-changing prizes are won with the major and mega jackpots with the first seeding at € 50,000.
In May 2022, the WowPot! jackpot network setup was revamped with the addition of new games such as Ancient Fortunes Poseidon WowPot Megaways. Since the renewal in May 2022, there have already been 5 jackpot hits of above one million euros, the currency that is normally used to announce the jackpots internationally. Since its launch in 2020, the progressive jackpot network has paid out an impressive € 110,379,762 (NZ$ 179.231,56). Games that are now part of the WowPot! Jackpot network include: 9 Blazing Diamonds, Sherlock and Moriarty, Sisters of Oz, Book of Atem, Queen of Alexandria, African Legends, Wheel of Wishes, and Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon WowPot Megaways.
Microgaming: King Of Jackpots
Microgaming is a provider that was founded way back in 1994 in the Isle of Man and is best known for the jackpot pokies it has successfully launched over the years. Mega Moolah, released in 2006, is the most well-known jackpot pokie and many spin-offs have been released since its launch. Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network is the largest in the world and has paid out over € 1.4 billion (NZ$ 2.2bn) to date. In 2015, they made it to the Guinness World Records for the biggest jackpot payout when a British gambler won € 17.87 million (NZ$ 29.02m) with a spin of just € 0.30 on Mega Moolah. That world record was broken on Sunday, September 28, 2019 when the jackpot of € 18.91 million (NZ$ 30.71m) was hit. A lot of casino bonuses are available for the Mega Moolah pokie.
Mega Moolah belongs to the Mega Moolah Progressive Jackpot Network, but the WowPot! network is also gaining players around the world, including New Zealanders. The WowPot games are part of Microgaming’s new generation of jackpot games. WowPot was launched in February 2020 with its first game Wheel of Wishes, and three other online pokies were quickly added to the progressive jackpot network: Book of Atem, Sisters of Oz and African Legends. African Legends only offers the chance to win the major jackpot that starts at € 50,000. It is expected that more games will be added to the WowPot! jackpot network.
