Big Winners, New Games & Latest Tourney Info

July 5, 2016

Let’s start by taking a look at some of the latest big online casino wins that have occurred over the past few weeks and then we can take a look at some of the latest online pokies to have arrived in casinos. We will also be discussing a major new online pokie tournament called the Sure Win Cup Freeroll which is starting today, Monday 4th July, 2016.

The biggest win last month occurred on Friday 17th June and the lucky 27-year-old winner netted an incredible €6,355,463.98 (which is approximately NZ$9.8 million) while playing on a progressive jackpot pokie from Microgaming called Mega Moolah. “I still can’t believe this is real,” said the winner.

“I’ve been in shock since I won and it is literally going to change my life. There is so much I want to do with this money and it couldn’t have come at a better time. My family are overwhelmed and so happy,” added the winner. We also found out about several other relatively big wins (although nowhere near as massive as the win mentioned above).

One lucky New Zealander won a total of NZ$7,380.00 from a Microgaming pokie called Untamed – Giant Panda and another New Zealander won a total of NZ$30,840.00 from the Break da Bank Again pokie. There was also a player known only as J.W. who ended up winning a total of NZ$13,330.00 from the Ariana pokie.

In other news, lots of new Microgaming pokies recently arrived in casinos and are now widely available in the real money mode and in the free play mode. Microgaming’s very latest pokies include Win Sum Dim Sum, Bar Bar Black Sheep and Pretty Kitty. The next new online pokie from Microgaming is called Reel Spinner and this one is set to arrive in Kiwi online casinos on July 6th.

Microgaming’s Head of Product Channels released the following statement: “This game combines a great theme with a solid maths engine, containing a fun and new-fangled feature. We know players like fresh content with unique features, so we expect Reel Spinner to be a popular addition to our ever-growing games portfolio.”

The new Reel Spinner pokie will be launched simultaneously across multiple platforms (flash, download, mobile and Quickfire) and some of the recommended NZ online casinos where you can play on these new pokies include Jackpot City Casino, Spin Palace Casino, Ruby Fortune Casino, Gaming Club Casino and Cabaret Club Casino.

Finally, this year’s Sure Win Cup starts today and this is running at hundreds of participating Microgaming casinos. This is a freeroll pokie tournament and there are 100 paid positions up for grabs. The tourney will be split into four furlongs (weeks) and 50% of the paddock (player) will be eliminated at the end of each furlong. This event has zero entrance fee, but you do have the option to purchase Rebuys and Continue Plays. The only game that you get to play on throughout this event is an online pokie called Sure Win.
