On the 28th of April this year, after much anticipation, the famous Mega Moolah online progressive jackpot slot finally paid out at a whopping 1.3 million and just a few days later on the 5th of May the Major Millions Slots Jackpot was hit and paid out 1,800,600 to a very lucky player!
The last time Major Millions was won was on the 4th of January 2012 and paid out at just under the 1.8 million mark and in the whole of 2011 only paid out once to the value of just under 500,000 so it looks like 2012 is going to be a lucky year for this slot!
The Major Millions progressive slots jackpot is available in 3 different variations namely the original 3 reel slot version, the 5 reel and 15 payline video slot game and of course the Mega Spin slot. According to Microgaming the original 3 reel Major Millions slot is a player favourite.
In spite of there being 3 variants of this slot, the possibility to win the progressive jackpot prize remains the same across all versions, provided of course that you’re playing the maximum bet! Should you not be playing the maximum bet and see the jackpot winning combination land on your screen you will not be eligible for the jackpot prize, so always make sure you’re betting the maximum when playing progressives.
Since the hit, Major Millions has been reset to its usual 250,000 minimum but in just a few short days is already passing the 550,000 mark and Mega Moolah is already back to over 1 million!
When it comes to Progressive Jackpots, Microgaming pays out players in the currency in which they are playing, so for example, if you’re playing in Euro’s and happen to be lucky enough to hit the jackpot then you’ll be paid out in Euros.
