The planets surely aligned for one lucky UK winner on April 14 when they claimed the first-ever WowPot Mega jackpot from Microgaming’s new WowPot series of progressive slots. The player won a phenomenal prize of over $15 million in prize money.
This win marks the third WowPot jackpot won since the first of the new series of progressive slots was released. One of the more surprising details of this amazing story is that the winner, who has requested to remain anonymous, landed the huge win with a trifling $0.80 bet. Their prize was won from the Book of Atem slot and will be paid out as a lump sum.
WowPot consists of a network of progressive slot games where every time a player places a bet on any game that is part of the WowPot network, a percentage of that bet goes into the pot.
Since being launched in February of 2021, the WowPot network has grown to include six video slots. These titles are Alchemy Gaming’s Wheel of Wishes, Book of Atem, African Legends, Sisters of Oz, Queen of Alexandria, and Sherlock & Moriarty, with more titles in the pipeline.
A Mega first
Since WowPot’s launch, two Major progressive jackpot prizes have been won, but the recent Mega win is the first in the jackpot’s history.
The major jackpot wins came from Sisters of Oz and Book of Atem with the latter now surpassing itself and creating the first of many multi-millionaires if Microgaming’s history is anything to go by.
