Microgaming Jackpot Pool Crosses $4 Million

Players at Microgaming online casinos have another thing to rejoice about. The progressive jackpot pool has just crossed the $4 million mark. This pool is the sum total of the jackpot amounts of all the Microgaming progressive slot games. There are 15 online casino games in this pool including slots, casino poker, roulette, blackjack and video poker. This is not the largest figure that the jackpot pool has seen. There was a time when the pool was upwards of $7 million. But an important landmark has been crossed and who can say where it will end.

The biggest contributor to the Microgaming jackpot pool is not surprisingly Mega Moolah. Mega Moolah has just crossed its own personal landmark of $2 million. It was hit just under two months ago, reset at $1 million and has been growing at a healthy rate of $20,000 a day. King Cashalot is at almost $1 million. Hence these two slot games alone contribute to about 70% of the jackpot pool. This is the highest that King Cashalot has gone in a long time. It had hit above the million dollar mark a little less than two years ago. But since then it has been hitting at about $650,000. At its present rate of growth it should cross $1 million within 30 days, if it is not hit by then.

Then there are three other online casino games that are above the $100,000 level. The largest of these is Major Millions. Major Millions is historically a very important casino game for Microgaming. It was the first progressive jackpot online slot to pay more than a million dollars in a single hit. There is another unusual feature about this slot game. It has a three slot and a five reel slot networked to the same progressive jackpot. Currently Major Millions is at $335,000. Treasure Nile is at $256,000. For a long time its average hit was $50,000. Then suddenly the last two hits went up to $108,000 and $221,000 and now the next one will be even bigger. The last slot of the three is Roulette Royale. It is the largest progressive jackpot as per current values that is not an online slot game. It grows very slowly because it is a difficult jackpot to hit. The player has to win on the same number five times in a row. It is now at $143,000 but hit at almost $1 million two years ago.

All these progressive jackpots are available at Microgaming online casinos. CasinoAdvisor recommends All Slots Casino, River Belle Casino, Platinum Play Casino and Spin Palace Casino. There are four new normal Microgaming slots games released this month. The pick is Steinfest, which celebrates the beer drinking Oktoberfest.
