jackpot report week 18

Our jackpot report week 18 reveals news of the third win in a month after Arabian Nights pays out its €2.3 million jackpot! (Image from John Guccione at pexels.com)

We could certainly get used to this, yet another major jackpot has just paid out this week, making it three times within a month. Arabian Nights, one of NetEnt’s popular progressive jackpot slots, went yesterday to the tune of €2,339,606.

That payout comes just a week after another of NetEnt’s jackpot slots; Mega Fortune rewarded one lucky player with a payout of €3.3 million. Just two weeks prior to that win, the MegaJackpots from IGT made somebody £1.7 million richer!

While it is great news that some of the smaller progressive jackpots have recently paid out, the big boys are still sitting there at the top. It is almost as if the gods are teasing us by triggering the relatively smaller jackpots but keeping the truly life-changing amounts untouched. Still, this just means that by the time someone does win them, they will be bigger than they are now.

The Arabian Nights jackpot had gone 574 days since its previous payout of €1,355,179 in October 2020. That was well above the average payout frequency of this jackpot, as it previously paid out every 151 days on average. That frequency has now increased to an average of 157 days to reflect how long this one took to pay.

As you know, this report tracks the 10 most prominent progressive jackpot slots and networks. We let you know how each is doing, which have recently paid, and which we feel is ripe for the picking. We compile all this data in the accompanying table so that you can have a quick one look access to how each jackpot is performing. You can see the current size, the average payout frequencies and wins, and how long it is since they have paid. Then, we give you a yes, no, or maybe on whether you should play them.

Onto the Jackpots That Should Have Your Attention

As three jackpots have gone within the past few weeks, it means that there are seven that you should be gunning for. Of course, right at the top of the list should be the two progressive jackpots offered by Microgaming, a leading iGaming firm that has recently sold its full range of iGaming casino games including its jackpot slots, to Games Global Limited.

The Mega Moolah is currently valued at close to £12.5 million while the WowPot is edging its way to a jackpot totalling £11 million. As you can see in the table, we believe that both are at a stage where they deserve attention. This is due to their size and how long they have gone since last paying. The same can be said about Playtech’s Jackpot Giant, which is now worth around €6.5 million and has not paid for nearly 1,000 days. Hall of Gods from NetEnt is worth a look too, if not just for the fact that two other NetEnt jackpots have gone recently.
