Microgaming has revealed details of the latest millionaire* to be created by its progressive jackpot network, as total payouts from all seven and eight-figure wins for the year to date surpass €30 million.

On 20 July 2020, Microgaming’s Major Millions progressive slot was hit for €1,650,382.89** at Spin Casino – the seventh millionaire to be made on the network so far this year, equating to one millionaire a month on average!

A UK-based player, who wishes to remain anonymous, struck gold within a month of registering at Spin Casino, pocketing the €1.6 million win from a €3 wager. As with all payouts on Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network, the winner will receive the prize as a lump sum and not in annuities.

UK spokesperson at Spin Casino, comments: “We are absolutely thrilled for our winner, who has become a millionaire overnight. Microgaming’s Major Millions has always been a popular game and we are delighted that the new 5-reel version is proving similarly so with our customers.”

The win marks the third seven-figure jackpot generated on Major Millions this year, following a €1,650,910.31 prize on 14 March and a €1,203,349.99 jackpot on 12 June. Other notable payouts this year include four multi-million euro jackpot wins on Microgaming’s iconic Mega Moolah, including the largest win of 2020 so far, plus a trio of wins in May across Atlantean Treasures™: Mega Moolah and Absolootly Mad™: Mega Moolah.

Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network continues to grow from strength to strength in 2020 with the release of new progressive titles and a wealth of life-changing wins, including 550+ players pocketing €10,000 or more.

Upcoming titles on the network include Book of Atem™: WowPot (All41 Studios), Sisters of Oz™: WowPot (Triple Edge Studios), Fortunium Gold™: Mega Moolah (Stormcraft Studios), Juicy Joker™: Mega Moolah (Just For The Win), and African Legends™ (Slingshot Studios).

“With total lifetime payouts exceeding €1.2 billion, Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network has had an outstanding year to date, driven by a number of new game releases, including Wheel of Wishes, Atlantean Treasures and Absolootly Mad. We look forward to building on this momentum over the coming months, hosting more feature-rich games that feed into our leading jackpots, which have paid out over €115 million across 2,571,389 jackpots so far this year – that’s more than eight payouts every minute on average!” – said, John Coleman, CEO at Microgaming.

Former ESL Executive Charlie Allen Launches Esports Agency “Road House”
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Charlie Allen, former director of global brand partnerships at ESL, has launched a new commercial esports and gaming agency, Road House.

The new company focuses on working with its clients to help them navigate the esports and gaming landscape and understand the mass potential of brand partnerships in a booming industry. Founded back in late 2020, Road House consults with brands, agencies, rights holders, publishers, and tournament organisers from all over the sports, media & entertainment world.

“Despite the challenges the industry has faced due to the pandemic, it is still a very promising time for esports right now. I’ve learned a great deal from working in this fascinating sector over the past few years and it felt like the right time to launch Road House,” Charlie Allen said.

“During my years at ESL, I spoke with many C-suite level executives from across many different sectors in the traditional marketing world, and what I discovered is that the broad, open ecosystem of esports can prove rather daunting to them. They really needed it explaining to them – like about how esports is consumed, who plays where, how many people are tuning in, and how can we positively engage with them?”

The commercial agency works with clients on RFPs from across both the endemic and non-endemic world, and the appetite to reach new millennial audiences that these brands have never managed to reach before is definitely on the rise.
