Any kind of win from online bingo or slots and I’m ecstatic, but can you image landing a win of multiple millions? One gobsmacked spinner from the UK has had his fortunes altered for life after the eye-watering sum of €17,529,047.11* (£15,183,085.96) decided to drop. If you’ve ever played the (many) Microgaming progressive titles, you’ll already know the pot can erupt at a moments notice and since it went live back in September 2020, which is only 7-months ago, a total of €23 million* has been won, including another grand jackpot sum of €998,876.35* just last month!
The Egyptian themed slot is proving to be popular with the gaming community with hints of Book of Dead by Play’N Go about it. A trio of book icons trigger the free games bonus where a specially chosen symbol is awarded extra powers – the powers of expansion. Low and medium paying symbols will see action kick in on the presence of three or more of those specially chosen symbols while the higher paying, only need two to drop to witness the expanding prowess of the ancient King!
This is How It’s Done:
32Red Casino, an online gaming destination was where the jackpot dropped and on April 14th of this year, the anonymous player from the UK became the first to win the top WowPot jackpot on a bet of just 80p a spin! Eighty-pence a spin! We told you that you didn’t need to bet big to win big! According to the software developer, “The player is one of 93 EUR millionaires* to be created on Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network, which has paid out more than €1.3 billion* (EUR currenc equivalent) across all games and jackpots to date.” Impressive!
What happens know it’s been won? Book of Atem WowPot, the ancient Egyptian title and the other titles in this jackpot series (Sherlock & Moriarty WowPot, Wheel of Wishes, Sisters of Oz WowPot and African Legends), will see the top jackpot reset, but not back to zero – back to an impressive €2million, and now it begins its ascend to greater riches until it’s won once again!
John Coleman, CEO at Microgaming had this to say on the recent win: “What a phenomenal win – our third largest ever and the first Mega to drop on WowPot! Congratulations to the winning player, and of course to 32Red and Kindred Group, who have been such brilliant partners of Microgaming over the years. I’d also like to thank All41 Studios for developing Book of Atem: WowPot, and Alchemy Gaming for playing a key role in building our WowPot jackpot. Here’s to many more wins together.”
