Book of Atem Pours €17.5m Jackpot Into UK Bankroll
Microgaming are renowned globally for their jackpots, especially the Mega Moolah series with more than €19m (and counting) up for grabs. It was the other jackpot series that made the headlines recently – the WowPot series, after one lucky brit managed to hit the big time from a bet of just 80p! Book of Atem is an ancient Egyptian inspired slot which in first impressions. Is styled very similar to that of The Book of Dead from Play’N Go, but unlike the non-progressive slot. Book of Atem offers players the chance to scoop life-changing amounts!
Even after the biggest prize has been won, the pot starts growing all over again from a starting sum of €2million, making it a popular game to play among the online gaming community. The lucky 32Red player was spinning the reels on April 14th when the progressive jackpot element dropped. Taking the wheel for a spin. The anonymous winner knew he/she was guaranteed one of the four jackpots, but never in a million years did they expect to win such a grand sum from such a small stake!
A massive €17,529,047.11* (£15,183,085.96) was won. Making it the first ever mega win on the slot title and, making the winner player number 93 on the list of millionaires created. To date, Microgaming has paid out more than €1.3billion across its entire games and jackpots. John Coleman, CEO at Microgaming said: “What a phenomenal win – our third largest ever and the first Mega to drop on WowPot! Congratulations to the winning player, and of course to 32Red and Kindred Group, who have been such brilliant partners of Microgaming over the years. I’d also like to thank All41 Studios for developing Book of Atem: WowPot, and Alchemy Gaming for playing a key role in building our WowPot jackpot. Here’s to many more wins together.”
Another title as part of the WowPot jackpot series produced a grand winner too, only a sum not as lavish as the lucky Brit’s. Sisters of Oz WowPot, secured a major win of €1,123,513.15 only last month, but we’re yet to discover the details surrounding that win. Another popular jackpot – Mega Moolah, is smashing the €19million mark and is also up for grabs, only unlike WowPot slots, you won’t need to gather overlay symbols to stand a chance of winning.
Mega Moolah, Atlantean Treasures Mega Moolah, Absolutely Mad Mega Moolah, Fortunium Mega Moolah and Juicy Joker Mega Moolah all offer the same four jackpots, and of those five titles, only three offer a random jackpot bonus. Juicy Joker is the latest instalment in the series with a regular spin of the jackpot wheel appearing, only you are not guaranteed a win from the spin. The largest win ever recorded on Mega Moolah was €18,915,872.81 in September 2018. While we don’t know when it will go and to whom, what we do know is whoever wins the jackpot next, will go in the record books with a new largest win record!
