2010 Microgaming Progressive Slots Jackpot Hits for $38k

If there’s one thing Microgaming casinos are famous for it’s the size and diversity of its many progressive jackpot slot machines. It seems like every time we turn around, there’s another massive Microgaming progressive at one of their . Once more, we’re happy to announce one lucky $38k winner from a Microgaming casino.

The player who struck the jackpot last Sunday is remaining anonymous, but we can tell you that it was Microgaming’s popular “Lotsa Loot” slot machine that awarded the impressive jackpot of $38,510.

The Lotsa Loot online slot has been incredibly lucrative for players on the Microgaming network of online casinos. In just the last two months, thirteen lucky players have released the progressive jackpot on this munificent virtual machine. Four of those jackpot hits came in the last two weeks.

While this is awesome news for online slots fans in most regions of the world, US online casino fans have little to celebrate as of yet. Microgaming pulled out of the US market in late 2008, claiming to be in compliance with the problematic Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA). This means US players are no longer able to take advantage of the multitude of progressive slots at Microgaming casinos.

In fact, there have been no reports of any having paid out a progressive jackpot slot thus far in 2010. Then again, we’re less than a week into the new year, so perhaps some lucky Us online casino fans will soon have plenty of reasons, and dollar signs, to cheer about.

Mobile Casino Player $10k Jackpot Winner

A woman from South Africa is $10,000 richer today after winning a slots jackpot at an online casino. Karin D. was playing one of her favorite online slots machines, Tomb Raider, on her mobile phone when all of a sudden she hit the jackpot for $10,225.

Tomb Raider is one of the more popular online slots developed by Microgaming. Karin hit the jackpot from the mobile casino brand, All Slots, powered by Microgaming. According to a press release announcing the big win, she had only signed up an account at the online casino one month prior to the jackpot release. She was playing the online slots from her Nokia mobile phone.

The online casino interviewed Karin D. shortly after. Asking how she felt about the win, she said she felt “delight at winning such a huge payout so soon after joining.”

Mobile have become incredibly since they were first introduced just a few years back. There are a lot of Microgaming casinos these days offering their online casino platform for download on a mobile platform. Online casino software developer Real Time Gaming (RTG) also provides a mobile gaming platform for their online casinos.

Microgaming is better known to provide a more inclusive variety of games, but RTG is recognized for having the biggest progressive jackpots in the industry. Another plus for RTG casinos is that they accept USA players, where Microgaming closed its virtual doors to Americans in late 2008.

At present, US officials are overseeing a great deal of debate and proposed legislation that could easily change the current outlook of laws on Internet based gambling. It may not be long before Microgaming casinos are able to provide their online gaming services to US players once more.
