Our Jackpot Report Week 20

Reporting the 10 usual jackpots for Week 20 (May), as well as a special mention for a 6-figure jackpot payout from Red Tiger! (Image from Tumisu at pixabay.com)

The 10 progressive jackpots that we usually cover have gone a week without paying out the jackpot, but the good news is that all of those jackpots are now bigger than the last time we reported on them! Of course, it would have been against all the odds to see the Mega Moolah jackpot drop again, but there are plenty of other jackpot networks that are well beyond due.

Which Jackpots are Well Beyond Due? – Some Jackpots are Surely Ready to Pop?

The longer time goes on without a jackpot paying out, the more likely it is to drop. Playtech’s Jackpot Giant has still not dropped after 989 days, which is around 6 times later than when it pays out on average. The lengthy delay has seen the jackpot swell to be almost 50% higher than it usually is on average, as it currently stands at €6,476,606.

The same could almost be said for WowPot! Which is more than 4 times over its average drop time. Microgaming’s hit progressive jackpot network usually pays out after around 66 days, but it has been 269 days since we saw it pay out the ‘big one’. With the current jackpot standing at £11,011,865 (and counting), we are licking our lips at the thought of it surpassing the progressive jackpot record, although there is still some way to go.

Of all the jackpots that are ready to drop, it’s got to be said that Major Millions is the one that we would have already expected to payout. It has been 217 long days since a winner was last announced and considering it is usually the progressive jackpot to payout most frequently at an average of 30 days, we can only imagine that the jackpot is now overflowing and about to burst.

Could one of these jackpots drop in the next week, or maybe even more than one of them? As the hours go by, it is just getting more likely that another winner will be announced at some online casino.

Casino Gets the Mention of the Week – $194,824.69 Awarded to Lucky New Zealander Playing Red Tiger Title!

In what can be considered a generally quiet week in progressive jackpot news, there has been a lot of commotion coming out of New Zealand, as one lucky player scooped a 6-figure sum, and we thought that it was well worth a mention. A player from Auckland, New Zealand, was playing Red Tiger’s Wild Wild Chest at their favourite online casino, Casumo Casino, and managed to land the mega prize. Winner K, as they are known, dropped the jackpot of $194,824.69 on the 12th of May.

Wild Wild Chest is part of a jackpot network with multiple Red Tiger Gaming slots pooled together. The jackpot drops at random on any spin on any of the slots within the network. This player just happened to be in the right place at the right time to land a 6-digit jackpot!

A Word from Casumo Casino: Speaking after the win, a representative for Casumo commented how shocked Winner K is, and they are understandably still in the ‘is this real?’ frame of mind. This could be the start of a trend at Casumo, as some of its other jackpots are at €835,000+ right now, and are hot to drop.
