|Microgaming’s progressive network has paid out over $200m in prize money.|
That figure has been split between nearly 6,000 winners including, Amanda R from Plymouth, who only last month became one of the UK’s highest online gaming Jackpot winners, taking home $1,427,369.74.
Roger Raatgever, CEO, Microgaming, said, “Reaching $200m in payouts is a true landmark moment in the life of online gaming, but to reach it in three short years is remarkable. I think it’s fair to say that this serves as testament to our commitment to provide the best and most rewarding playing experiences on the web. But, it doesn’t stop there. With over 60 new games earmarked for release this year alone, we believe it won’t be long before we celebrate reaching the $300m mark.”
The $200m total equates to an average of $18,000 being paid out each day since launch. All the jackpots won through the casinos that provide the progressive games are offered in full, direct cash payments.
