This month of April is an extremely lucky one for a certain player, as they have hit Microgaming's WowPot Jackpot for a life-changing win worth €17,529,047.11 (£15,183,085.96), marking the first ever Mega win on the progressive jackpot.
On April 14, 2021 Wednesday, a 32Red Casino player in the UK became the first person to land the top WowPot jackpot after placing a bet of £0.80 on the slot game Book of Atem: WowPot. The player is one of 93 EUR millionaires to be created on Microgaming's progressive jackpot network, which has paid out more than €1.3 billion across all games and jackpots to date.
This eight-figure sum is the largest WowPot win of all time and it's also the third largest* award in the history of Microgaming's progressive jackpot network. As with all wins made on the network, the jackpot prize has been paid to the player in a lump sum.
CEO at Microgaming John Coleman said, "What a phenomenal win - our third largest ever and the first Mega to drop on WowPot! Congratulations to the winning player, and of course to 32Red and Kindred Group, who have been such brilliant partners of Microgaming over the years. I'd also like to thank All41 Studios for developing Book of Atem: WowPot, and Alchemy Gaming for playing a key role in building our WowPot jackpot. Here's to many more wins together."
UK General Manager of Kindred Group Neil Banbury said, "We're overjoyed for our player, first and foremost. Congrats on this incredible win! Well done to Microgaming, too, for delivering the industry's leading range of progressive jackpot games. WowPot comes with a cracking set of games and is now on par with Mega Moolah as one of the big hitters."
Released in September 2020, the Egyptian-themed Book of Atem: WowPot was made exclusively for Microgaming by All41 Studios, and it was the second title to feature the four-tiered WowPot progressive jackpot. Since then, a total of €23 million has been awarded through the game across all jackpot tiers, with one lucky winner grabbing a Major jackpot of €998,876.35 in March 2021.
Microgaming's progressive jackpot network strongly continues on, with recent game additions including Absolootly MadTM: Mega Moolah, developed by Triple Edge Studios and Atlantean TreasuresTM: Mega Moolah, developed by Neon Valley Studios.
With WowPot having returned to its starting seed of €2 million, Mega Moolah is now by far the industry's largest jackpot, currently approaching the €18 million mark.

I am a little bit disappointed in the fact that there's no video of the winnings. One would think that the winner would at least get his smartphone up and snatch some pictures or reaction about it with the winning screen in the background...
This is incredible, winning that amount of money with just a few cents of a dollar is not to believe it and colverse crazy, but in reality it is like that, when sometimes you think that you are not going to win almost anything in the casinos luck appears and they give you wanting to continue playing more, congratulations to this player who actually changed a life.
if i were the owner of that casino, i would have offered 500,000 euros to 35 players to make many people happy. I personally am disappointed with so many big prizes for jackpot winners and others do not win too much. I think many of the jackpot winners must to show their faces for greater credibility.

your question is on place and good point,but maybe its on this casino page or blog,maybe 32 red made some news from it or microgaming as company!I cant open this casino page because of goverment restrictions,so cant find out do they have something or not! but as always it would be good to see some picture,video or at least something about winner!
That also happens in other types of games such as tinka that win millions of dollars and do not put more concrete and truthful evidence to know that everything is transparent, now in this game that the winner has taken 17.5 million euros is difficult to believe it but there is at least a photo or a video of your gratitude.
I lost so much money in online casino. And if at the beginning i have both wins and losses, but for now it looks like, that it,s really too hard to win in any casino games. I believe you can win something in games with live dealers right now, but not in slots. And after i see this news, like anyone hit the jackpot i just don,t believe this. Random people will never hit this.
I agree with you Dingo! Now the slots are more difficult to win, even when you try to play in big bets, before I thought the opposite, but little by little I am realizing that it is not so credible, will the casino drop a lot of money? ?? that's questionable.
I don't think it's harder to win at slot games compared to the past, because casinos focus on a mathematical calculation... and if they offer fewer prizes, then customers will start to disappear. Prizes are offered in the same way, but our luck does not exist. I'd like to see an interview with this jackpot winner.
Wow that just amazing from 80 cents? Wow again. Hope this guy or girl will not be one of those who gamble it all away or use on "stupid" things and are broke again in few years. There are just too many stories like that and even percent that this happened is very high. Hope all the best to the guy and invest and use it smart.
in my country, most of the winners of the 6/49 lottery prizes went bankrupt in a maximum of 5 years, even if they won millions of euros. Now i hear from you that this thing is happening in other places. If i won a large amount, i buy in a rural area house and land. Rest of the money i wouldn't invest them in business to lose them and after that to regret this ugly thing.
jackpots are some different story and they have nothing with regular play on slot!you just talk about totally different things!jackpots must be payed at some time,will they be 500 K or 5 million e,but they will pay at some point,but with regular play you cant know who will win and when,so you dont know how much they pay,when some game have rtp of 96 %!
this player will remain anonymous and we will not have the opportunity to hear what he says. I'm disappointed of this thing and i'm not entirely convinced if i can't see with my own eyes the his face and what he would have said. Anyway, i congratulate him for his win.

This is what i,m talking about. All joke is that when i play on low bets i can see some wins, and slots can play pretty good for sometime. Bet when i sometimes try to make a higher bets i just see everytime empty spins. I can,t see bonus, or if i see this, it gives only a small win.
Obviously it is not easy to make money in a casino, because many gamblers win small and medium cash prizes. Casinos must make a profit, jackpots must also be collected, and it is normal for most people to lose. Every man has his risk.
Of course they must make money, it's biznis like others. They make allot, but also you have chance to win big if you are lucky. And if you read tearms and condisitions you have all explained. Allot of sites even describe every game how work, how big is rtp and so on. It's only on players if they want to try or not and for how much.
I already have played couple of days before for a few hours in casino, made some spins in the slots. had some wins on a small bet, just make a higher bet and slot just take my money. On big bets any soft didn,t want to give you at least something.
dingo its has nothing with lower of bigger bets on your spins on slots,its just you think that you lose money faster and that you dont get anything from few spins,but just depend how much you have on account and can you have 20 spins without win!casino games dont work on that program,that if you will play on bigger bets that he will take money easily from you!
I have a friend who works in another country and played there. He won the most 500 dollars or euros ( i don't remember exactly ). He played small bet, but i don't know anyone who plays big bet. This is the risk at the casino and big luck is very rare.
dule-vu, i really want you to be right, but looks like you can win only on a small bets. I tryed many times to increase the bet, and usually any slots and any provider just talking your money away. For sure, slots are more for fun, but i think you need to win sometimes some money also.
its same when you play for jackpot like this,there is no limit on what bet you will play and who can win jackpot (only if they make in rules what kind of bet you need to play),so every player have chance to win! its same with bets on regular play on slots!ofcourse if you win some money on lower bets and you continue to play same slot and to raise bet,then he will take you all money,because he will stop at some point to give winnings!
of course, this slot casino game is a very risky game and in most cases we are left with a swollen lip and with empty pockets. The idea is that sometimes we can earn a few thousand dollars or euro. Maybe even more and after that you will be very happy.
I think right now slots are playing really bad and most of the times it just takes your money away. Many years ago it was possible to start to play with a $20 and easily cashout something like $200 or $300. And right now slots are playing not so good at all. To be honest it,s hard to remember, when i was wing big on slots in the couple of years.
if casinos no longer offer prizes, then they will go bankrupt. The competition is high, few customers, but it is impossible not let the players to win. It would go bankrupt immediately and it's like they would ruin themselves. Prizes exist but you're out of luck, just like me. I have 7-8 friends who won.

hm,dont know,maybe you are right about this,maybe it was easier,but on other hand now you have much more players who play online,so ofcourse more players that will lose money,no matter what rtp game have! but now you have more jackpots in game,every casino site have at least few of them,so people play more them and that you didnt had before!
I sit sometimes and think of those who win millions of euros from lotteries or casinos through jackpots of slots games. Why they go bankrupt quickly and don't know how to manage their money. It is sad that they do not think... after they managed such a '' performance''.
