Pair of multi-million progressive jackpot slots spew their wealth this week.
When we hear a member of the global online casino community was showered with the riches of an online slot machine’s progressive jackpot, we tend to immediately assume it was a Microgaming or NetEnt product that did the showering. That was not the case this week when a pair of multi-million dollar jackpots rained down on two very lucky players in a twenty-four hour period.
The first to spew its wealth was Blueprint Gaming’s Jackpot King Progressive. That lucky player collected $4.6 million on Wednesday, August 5. The following day, it was Random Logic’s Millionaire Genie that regurgitated just a smidge above $3 million in cash winnings. No doubt both players are today celebrating a life unimagined.
Jackpot King Multi-Million Progressive Jackpot
Blueprint Gaming isn’t exactly famous for its progressive slots network. They only host a few progressive games, and rarely do they reach seven figures. Wwhen they do, it’s often because they haven’t been struck in years. Two days ago, the Jackpot King Progressive offered up a magnificent $4,623, 276, but it was the first time the machine had dumped its pot in well over a year and a half; 1 year and 36 weeks, to be exact. I doubt the winner of that jackpot is complaining, though.
The lucky strike happened just 48 hours ago, so it’s too early to gather any notable details on the winner. What we do know is that the payout occurred on the Top Cat Slot, one of several machines linked to the Jackpot King network, and that the strike occurred at PartyGaming, one of the oldest and most reputable multi-channel gaming sites in the European market today.
We also know that this marks – by far – the largest payout in Jackpot King’s history. The second largest was also a sizeable one, paying $2,003,288 to a lucky winner at PartyCasino. It’s worth noting that those were the only two wins in the jackpot’s history.
Winner Rubs Millionaire Genie the Right Way
The Millionaire Genie Slot was built in 2011 by Random Logic for exclusive play on 888 Casino. It’s a classic 3 reel with just a single payline, retro graphics and, due to its exclusivity, no real press coverage to speak of. This explains why it rarely gets any spotlight media, despite paying out an average of $2+ million every three months or so. If you think about it, that’s not too far off the numbers of Microgaming’s elite Mega Moolah.
On Thursday, the machine dished up a $3,055,879 delicacy to one very lucky member of 888 Casino. Again, there are no details on the winner, but we do know it was the 47th win recorded on the Millionaire Genie Slot in 9 years; nowhere near the highest of $5.2M in 2015, but well ahead of its impressive $750k seed, and more than enough to alter the life of any casual slots fan.
On behalf of myself and everyone at eCheckCasinos, I’d like to offer our sincere congratulations to both winners of these multi-million progressive jackpot slots strikes. Well played!
