September 29, 2016

We can start by taking a look at some of the latest big winners from various online casinos and then we can take a look at several other highlights from the online gambling industry over the past month. The latest big win occurred on a Playtech mobile pokie called Gladiator Jackpot.

Very few details have filtered through about who this lucky player such as where he or she was playing. The only information that we managed to obtain about this big win is that the player netted an incredible €1,284,305.00 which is approximately AU$1,874,484.14. There was also a Norwegian player who netted a total of 45,000,000 kroner (approx. AU$7,284,706.97) from a NetEnt pokie called Mega Fortune.

The single biggest win over the past four weeks occurred on Sunday 28th August 2016 when a lucky player scooped an incredible €7,968,311.26 (approx. AU$11,630,004.60) while playing on a mobile pokie from Microgaming called Mega Moolah. Speaking about this record-breaking mobile casino win at the time was the Head of Casino at Microgaming, John Quinn.

He said, “With mobile gaming now accounting for almost half of all gameplay, it’s no surprise that we are seeing mega wins on this platform.” He then finished by saying, “We are extremely proud to have the longest-standing and biggest progressive jackpot network in the market, which also holds a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title. To now claim the largest ever mobile jackpot win is very pleasing. On behalf of everyone at Microgaming, congratulations to D.P. on this mammoth mobile win.” These comments came from Microgaming’s official website.

In other news, Microgaming ended up winning the highly sought-after Digital Product of the Year award at this year’s Global Gaming Awards. This is the third year in a row that Microgaming has managed to pick up this exact same award and this time it was Microgaming’s successful Quickfire platform that sealed the win for them.

“This win highlights the incredible progress of Quickfire since launching in 2010. The platform has emerged as the product of choice for operators who require immediate access to the best online gaming content from Microgaming and select development partners. It’s great to see the industry celebrate the content, flexibility and innovation of Quickfire,” said the Director of Quickfire, Andrew Clucas.
