Speaking just recently about the total amount paid out in 2018 was the Microgaming CEO, John Coleman.
He said, “Congratulations to all the lucky winners in 2018. We are proud to host the industry’s largest progressive jackpot network, which paid out more than €150 million last year, setting a number of payout records in the process.” He then went on to say, “It is remarkable to see total payouts nearing €1 billion, which really highlights the strength of the network, and we are excited to be working on a series of developments aimed at taking our progressive jackpot offering to the next level.” We took these comments directly from a recent Microgaming press release.
