Microgaming’s WowPot jackpot has been hit for a massive €17,529,047.11 (£15,183,085.96), marking the first-ever Mega win on the progressive jackpot.

On 14 April 2021, a 32Red Casino player in the UK became the first to land the top WowPot jackpot after placing a £0.80 bet on Book of Atem: WowPot. 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 across all games and jackpots to date.

Not only is the eight-figure sum the largest WowPot win of all time, eclipsing the €1,123,513.15 Major win triggered on Sisters of Oz: WowPot in March 2021, but it is also the third-largest award in the history of Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network. As with all wins on the network, the jackpot prize has been paid to the player in a lump sum.

Launched network-wide in September 2020, Egyptian-themed Book of Atem: WowPot was created exclusively for Microgaming by All41 Studios and was the second title to feature the four-tiered WowPot progressive jackpot. A total of €23 million has since been awarded through the game across all jackpot tiers, with one winner scooping a Major jackpot of €998,876.35 in March 2021.
