It was always going to happen and was always going to be eye-watering – that elusive WowPot ticking up on the Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network finally opened its coffers with a princely sum of €17,529,047.11 via the Book of Atem WowPot slot title!

Growing consistently since the February 2020 launch of the progressive WowPot jackpot network, which comprises multiple online slot titles, the WowPot had eluded everyone. Until Now!

The big win came on Wednesday, with Microgaming first releasing the news yesterday after the fortunate player was playing at 32Red Casino where he became the 93rd person to hit millionaire status thanks to a Microgaming progressive jackpot win! And just to add icing onto the cake, the Brit is also the first person to hit the highest of the 4 jackpots in the WowPot jackpot collection which consists of Mini, Minor, Major, and WowPot progressive jackpot payouts. What an achievement, and what a lump sum – surely the next step for this guy is to put his feet up and retire!

The Microgaming WowPot progressive jackpot is the industry leader, as no other jackpot has a base starting point as high as €2 million!

€17.5 Book of Atem WowPot Jackpot Hits the Record Books!

In terms of the WowPot progressive jackpot record, the latest €17.5 million payout eclipses the previous WowPot jackpot record, which stood at a ‘paltry’ €1.1 million and came via the ‘Major’ jackpot in March courtesy of the Sisters of Oz title. At that point, the ‘WowPot’ jackpot still stood at €13.5 million and was slowly growing until earlier this week when one lucky punter in the United Kingdom scooped the lot from a single £0.80 spin on the Book of Atem: WowPot slot!

Aside from being the biggest winner of the WowPot jackpot, a new progressive jackpot that launched just six months ago, this win also goes into third place on the all-time list. The biggest win to date from any progressive jackpot was €18,915,872.81, and it came in 2018 on Microgaming’s infamous Mega Moolah video slot. Mega Moolah is the largest progressive network online and now accounts for 7 out of the 10 largest progressive jackpot wins every paid out online. Ironically, the current Mega Moolah progressive jackpot stands unwon at over €17 million meaning that the current Mega Moolah jackpot is on course to beat the highest payout of €18,915,872.81. Meanwhile, in second place is a €17,886,199.18 win that came via NetEnt’s Mega Fortune back in 2013.

The best part about all Microgaming jackpots is that just like all other previous winners, the recent WowPot winner will receive the full amount in one lump sum directly from Microgaming! There is not much waiting around, and within 30 days, those millionaire winners can start spending their newfound fortune!

WowPot Creating Waves Among Slots Players!

It might have taken longer than expected, but Microgaming will love the fact that the first WowPot Mega Jackpot is so big. The player will not mind either! WowPot first came on the scene in September 2020 with the release of Wheel of Wishes, while Book of Atem was the second slot to contribute to the WowPot Mini, Minor, Major, and WowPot progressive jackpots. Since then, with the help of Microgaming’s independent studios, including Just For The Win, Neon Valley Studios, and Triple Edge Studios, a further 4 titles have since been released. The latest of these is Queen of Alexandria, a progressive slot Microgaming released just last week, Sisters of Oz, African Legends, and Sherlock and Moriarty.

The big draw is obviously the jackpots, and while interest may cool for a while now the first WowPot jackpot is down, and it should not take too long to get back up to an appealing amount – especially as it resets at €2 million each time so the next win is guaranteed to produce yet another millionaire!
