Videoslots online casino recently played host to a life-changing event for one lucky Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon WowPot Megaways player who claimed a huge jackpot win of $3 898,637.78.
The anonymous Swedish player claimed this prize with the top WowPot jackpot on 23 August 2021, a mere four days after the pokie went live with operators on Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network.
The mythology-themed game was created exclusively for Microgaming by Triple Edge Studios and integrates Big Time Gaming’s proprietary Megaways mechanic and the WowPot progressive jackpot, which made its first appearance in February 2021.
This recent WowPot win marks the fourth millionaire crowned by the progressive network and is the second-highest in the jackpot’s history but still, a mere morsel compared to the $17,529,047.11 prize which was claimed on 14 April 2021.
In 2021, Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network has paid out 2.6 million wins across all jackpots, tiers and games, coming to $143 million in prizes, pushing the total paid out to date over $1.45 billion.
Microgaming’s CEO, John Coleman said,
“It’s amazing to see another massive WowPot win dropping just days after Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon WowPot Megaways was released network-wide to our customers. Congratulations to Videoslots on this impressive payout, and to their player in Sweden.”
The Head of Commercials at Videoslots, William Ahlberg, added,
“We’re thrilled to provide our players with access to many of Microgaming’s legendary progressive jackpot slots – and even more so that one of our players has taken home the latest WowPot win, becoming a multi-millionaire!”
