The month of March has gotten off to a hot start for punters spinning the reels at online casinos, as there have already been multiple winners in the six and seven-figure range.
The month got off to a hot start when a punter ended up winning $871,292 while playing a Playtech powered Marvel slot, as the took home the Marvel Ultimate Power Jackpot. The wins kept rolling in, with fourteen additional winners raking in more than $100,000 each, and with more than half the month left to go, that number is sure to rise.
The biggest win of the month so far is the €3,777,948 jackpot picked up on March 14th when a player hit the Mega Fortune Mega Progressive Jackpot. The game, which was designed by Net Entertainment is one of the most popular slots in the world, offering huge progressive jackpots to players. The game’s progressive jackpot is won when a player is able to get to the middle of a multi-tiered wheel of fortune, which also holds cash prizes and a major and rapid jackpot, which are hit more frequently.
The Mega Fortune slot has proven to be so popular that Net Ent developed a sequel to the game, Mega Fortune Dreams, which saw a punter hit the game’s Mega Jackpot for €3,637,620 prize on March 9th. The game is nearly identical to the Mega Fortune slot, save for a different color scheme and updated reel symbols, and can be found at only a handful of casinos.
While these are the two largest progressive jackpots hit thus far, there are still plenty of large prizes to be won. The largest jackpot available is Microgaming’s Mega Moolah jackpot, which has a current value in excess of $8.3 million. The jackpot is overdue to be hit, as the average win value is $4,375,636 which is won every 13 weeks. As of press time it has been 23 weeks since the jackpot was hit. The Mega Moolah Jackpot is available to be won on a variety of Microgaming video slots, including Mega Moolah, The Dark Knight, and Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive, and can be won at a variety of casinos offering Microgaming’s library.
The next most overdue jackpot is Virtue Fusion’s Cleopatra’s Chest Jackpot, which has a prize value of £2,226,869, which is well over the average payout of £915,539. As of press time the jackpot’s value is high enough that it would be the second-largest in the game’s history, trailing just behind the £2,410,933 that was won at Gala Casino in September of 2015. Other big jackpots that are overdue to hit include 'Gladiator' by Playtech, 'Millionaire Genie' from Random Logic, and “Mega Wonder” from Net Ent, which is available for play at Betsson.
All of these games are tracked through the Casino Listings Jackpot tracker, which follows the progressive jackpot values for 749 different online jackpots. Since it debuted in 2009, the CL Jackpot Tracker has recorded 101,177 wins worth more than $1.59 billion. As of press time the 749 different jackpots had a current combined pool number of $110,635,609.
