|Progressive wins at Microgaming-powered casinos are at least 4 times those of its closest online rival. |
Players know that more people win more often at Microgaming-powered casinos. This goes a long way to explaining the continued popularity of the progressive games and gives Microgaming operators a distinct advantage in attracting and retaining online casino players.
Progressive jackpot payouts to more than 2300 winners now stand at over $66 million. The significance of these progressive wins at Microgaming’s operators should not be underestimated. According to a recent press report, a popular Nevada land based progressive network has paid out $382 million in the state since 1986. This represents approximately $2 million per month.
By contrast, in May 2002 alone, progressive wins across Microgaming-powered casinos were over $3.5 million. In addition, these wins are lump sum payments rather than being paid in annual instalments.
Major Millions, released to Microgaming operators in April this year, already holds the world record for an online jackpot of $1.59 million. Just as impressive is that the progressive jackpot climbed over $1.3 million in less than 45 days.
Given this information, it comes as no surprise that Datamonitor recently described Microgaming customers as ‘generally among the largest and most successful operators’.
Microgaming’s lead in this area will be further extended with the release of a brand new progressive ‘Roulette Royale’. As well as all the fun of classic Roulette, the player also has the chance of winning extra jackpots, including the progressive jackpot, with consecutive hits on the same number.
Roulette Royale will be the eleventh progressive game available to Microgaming operators.
