A Flurry of Online Casino Progressive Hits

In the last 24 hours no less than 5 progressive jackpots from Microgaming's online casino suite have been hit and not all of them were progressive slots.

The largest hit was on Major Millions, which went for $295,272. Despite this hit Major Millions remains the number two progressive jackpot from Microgaming, though far behind Mega Moolah. This is because Major Millions resets at $250,000. At one time this progressive jackpot online slot game was famous for creating millionaires. But of late it has been hitting at around $300,000, which is not very much about its reset value. The online gaming industry is waiting for Major Millions to live up to its name and earlier reputation, but the current crop of winners will not mind the $300,000 payouts.

The other progressive jackpots paid out relatively much smaller amounts. In terms of payout size the next jackpot was Jackpot Deuces. This is the progressive jackpot attached to the Deuces Wild video poker game. The jackpot is hit when the player draws a royal flush in diamonds with betting the maximum amount possible. The payout was of $49,574. This has been one of the larger hits in recent times. The average hit on Jackpot Deuces has been around $30,000.

Next in line was Mega Moolah Major. This is the second level progressive jackpot of the four level Mega Moolah. The highest level is the Mega Progressive, which resets at $1 million. Mega Moolah Major resets at $10,000 and usually pays out around $30,000. The present hit was at $27,807. The Mega Moolah jackpots are hit in a unique way. When the bonus game is triggered the players spin a Wheel of Fortune in which they win one of the four progressive jackpots on offer. The Mega Moolah Minor and the Mega Moolah Mini are hit very frequently. The Mega Moolah Major is hit about twice a week.

LotsaLoot was hit for $23,047. This progressive jackpot spread its largesse far and wide by hitting frequently for smaller amounts. The unique feature of LotsaLoot progressive jackpot is that it is networked to a five reel video slot and a three reel classic slot. Both require a bet of $2.50 in order to be eligible for the progressive jackpot. Both versions have the same odds of winning.

The smallest hit was at Poker Ride. Poker Ride is Microgaming's version of the popular casino poker game called Let It Ride. Poker Ride pays out the full jackpot if the player draws a royal flush. However it pays out 10% of the jackpot if the player draws a straight flush. In this case though the full jackpot was at $121,095, the payout was only $12,109 because the player had drawn a straight flush. The jackpot for Poker Ride is still running at around $110,800.

Despite the fact that Microgaming offers by far the largest number of progressive jackpot games, five hits in a day is great news for players at Microgaming online casinos.

That's great news I'm very happy for these players and hope they spend the money wisely and by that I mean not putting it back into the casinos they won these from, lol ;-)
