2019 should be as good, if not better. Three weeks into the year, a lucky 32Red player scooped up a fantastic €1,162,021.24 jackpot playing Major Millions. The network has paid out an incredible €980 million to date. Mega Moolah jackpot is currently topping €17 million, therefore the total payouts will definitely clear the €1 billion mark soon.

John Coleman, CEO at Microgaming, congratulated all the lucky winners in 2018. He said, “We are proud to host the industry’s largest progressive jackpot network, which paid out more than €150 million last year, setting a number of payout records in the process.” The excitement is whether Mega Moolah will set another record with its next hit.
