In a remarkable turn of events, two players have hit the jackpot in Microgaming’s Mega Moolah slot in a span of 48 hours. The first jackpot, worth €11,546,388.15 jackpot was hit on March 5. The second one, of €2,201,120.31, happened on 6 March. Both lump sums were won through Casino Rewards brands.

The first one is estimated to be the fourth largest (EUR/EUR equivalent) on Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network, following the €13,328,028.16 win earlier this year, the €18,915,872.81 paid in September 2018, and the €17,879,645.12 that earned Microgaming a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® title in 2015. Remarkably, the €2.2 million win was triggered within 33 bets of the player registering with the casino that day.

Microgaming has paid out more than €1 billion to date.

David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming, said:”And there we have it! Mega Moolah strikes yet again. Microgaming continues to lead the way with more life-changing wins on the network. The fact that these two millionaires were made on consecutive days really demonstrates the strength and popularity of our world-famous Mega Moolah slot. Congratulations to both players!”

“Congratulations to our winners from everyone at the Casino Rewards team! We are absolutely delighted to see another two lucky players scoop seven and eight-figure sums on the massive Mega Moolah progressive jackpot – what a victory! To make three multimillionaires in as many months – two of them within 48 hours – is beyond anything we could have imagined! It’s great to see such colossal wins for our Casino Rewards members!” – added Emma Hall from Casino Rewards.

PayPerHead Steps Up To Help Small Business Owners
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

One big sportsbook software company is doing its part to help those impacted by COVID-19.

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, organizations around the world are exploring relief efforts to assist freelancers, entrepreneurs and small business owners that are being financially hit by the COVID-19 crisis.  PayPerHead® is one such organization.

While businesses outside of the healthcare sector are producing hand sanitizer, masks and other supplies to help stop the spread of the virus, many software and tech companies are doing what they can to help keep the economy afloat by putting into place deep price cuts and educational content. As a result, they are helping mass numbers of the newly unemployed build home businesses and work online.

PayPerHead®, a sportsbook software company based out of San Jose, Costa Rica, is a Software as a Service (SaaS) organization that is making big strides in helping people start a new business that can weather this storm or stay alive in an industry they are already part of.

While major sporting events have been cancelled across the board due to social distancing protocols, sportsbooks are finding ways to keep players in action. With wagering available on eSports, one-on-one competitions such as boxing or tennis, horse racing, casino gaming, and even election results, people are still betting as a form of entertainment.

Slashing rates to zero, PayPerHead® recently announced that all of their services, except those that entail outside software costs, will be offered to bookie agents free of charge until the first major sporting event begins again, or by September 1, 2020, whichever comes first.

Market research has positioned the pay per head sportsbook and casino industry to eclipse $155 billion by 2024. “If ever there was a good time to seek out an industry that can survive an economic downturn, now is it.” said Nate Johnson, Product Manager at PayPerHead®. “We know that times are tough, but we’ve been down this road before. When businesses were going bankrupt during the housing crisis of 2008, we stayed in the game. We’ll do it again and we’ll help others to do it too.”

About PayPerHead:

PayPerHead (https://payperhead.com), founded in 1997, is the industry’s leading per head online bookie software, providing user-friendly tools and unmatched customer service to independent bookmakers around the world.

Online Poker at All Time High

Online Poker at All Time High
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The recent increase in the amount of time people spend online has brought about a resurgence in online poker. Prior to lockdowns, 40 million people (around 6.8 percent of the total adult population) played poker regularly. Now that these people can no longer play poker at friends’ houses, at card clubs or in casinos, online poker is the clear choice for those looking for some action, fun and stress-relief.

Since social distancing and lockdowns took effect, online poker playing has increased by 43 percent. New players are also eager to get into the game, with first-time poker players increasing by 255 percent in the same period.

The leading online poker room, Global Poker, is ready to meet this demand by offering a special event designed specifically for players who are bored at home. The Global Poker Home Series, dubbed “the world’s biggest home game,” launched March 30.

This massive event—the biggest one Global Poker has ever held, to date—guarantees over Sweeps Cash (SC) 2,000,000, with SC5000,000 guaranteed on the final table. Unlike many other options, Global Poker offers the chance to win cash prizes, making this an even more enjoyable and exciting option for serious players.

“As long as thrill seekers are staying at home, Global Poker will give them the chance to find adventure excitement, and camaraderie through online poker,” said Global Poker General Manager David Lyons.

Poker journalist Nick Jones recently highlighted the dramatic increase of online poker players. According to his research, online poker activity is on track to beat the record set five years ago, with an average of 45,000 players simultaneously flocking to the virtual tables. This trend will likely continue, as more players wisely choose to say home during this global pandemic. Source: @pokerprojones

Running March 30–April 26, the Global Poker Home Series will provide plenty of action to keep house-bound poker players entertained for the next four weeks. And with the site’s Rattlesnake Open beginning May 4, players won’t have to wait long before more big tournaments come back into town.

 

About Global Poker :
