The world’s leading online gaming software provider Microgaming made an announcement yesterday that will bring joy to the players at its casinos. The announcement read, “Not one but two lucky players have both won life-changing cash sums through the Microgaming powered Progressive Jackpot Network and all in the space of one week.” Microgaming online casino players would have known that these progressive jackpots have been hit because of the fall in their ticker amounts. Now further details have been provided.

The first winner Susan C was from Britain, who had recently signed up with Platinum Play online casino, a Fortune Lounge brand. Then ten days after signing up she won an astonishing £1.97 million on December 28, 2011. The prize was won on the revamped The Lord of the Rings branded slot game, which is linked to the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot. This hit is the biggest progressive win at Platinum Play online casino to date. Susan could not believe her luck. She plans to use a part of her winnings to take a vacation to Las Vegas and China or Nepal. She will also donate a portion to animal charities and to top it all take an early retirement. Platinum Play online casino is licensed by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta.

The second winner was a player from Spin Palace online casino. His name has not been revealed. But there is one remarkable similarity between the two wins. This player hit the jackpot on January 4, 2012 less than 3 days after opening his account at Spin Palace online casino. The hit took place on the Major Millions progressive jackpot online slot for over $1.78 million. Major Million was the first progressive jackpot game to pay over a million in the history of online gambling. Spin Palace online casino is not new to big hits. In August 2010 one of its players hit the progressive jackpot on the Mega Moolah network for over $4.1 million. Spin Palace was launched in 2001 and has won several industry awards. It is a brand of The Palace Group and is also licensed by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta.

The announcement goes on to say that both the winners will benefit from receiving the amounts in full in a single payment and so will be able to enjoy their winnings immediately. The Microgaming powered Progressive Jackpot Network pays out cash wins in a lump sum. The announcement pointed out that many other online gaming software providers typically pay out by means of an annuity. The Microgaming Progressive Jackpot Network has paid out over €320 million since it began in 1999. Even after these two big hits, the total across all jackpots currently stands at 3.3 million credits.
