As April drew to a close, something seemed to have stirred in the heart of Microgaming’s mighty progressive jackpot network, with both Mega Moolah and WowPot setting new respective records and making a few lucky players extremely happy and exceedingly rich.
The WowPot Mega Jackpot paid out twice in under 7 days, with the second prize of NZD $2,025,388.75 going to a Sherlock & Moriarty WowPot player in Belgium at Napoleon Sports & Casino Online on 19 April 2021. This win represents the largest amount ever awarded by Sherlock & Moriarty WowPot that went live in March 2021.
Sherlock & Moriarty WowPot is the fifth title in Microgaming’s new WowPot series of progressive jackpot online pokies. The game was developed exclusively for Microgaming by Just For The Win.
The 5×3 reel pokie’s theme is inspired by the adventures of the literary world’s most famous detective as he matches wits with his diabolical nemesis. Sherlock & Moriarty WowPot’s eerie Victorian London atmosphere and suspenseful gameplay makes pursuing the jackpot a feature-packed adventure. In under 2 months, this pokie has already dished out NZD $3.5 million in progressive jackpot prizes so you would do yourself a disservice by not getting in on the action.
