One of the big progressive jackpots from Microgaming, Major Millions, was won at the weekend, paying out a huge $516,187 (£357,317 or €462,044) to one lucky player.

This latest win is very close to the average payout for Major Millions, which is $572,017. However it well short of the biggest win recorded on this progressive jackpot, which was $2,605,762 in May 2012.

Major Millions comes in two formats, a 3 reel slot and a 5 reel slot. The 5 reel slot only gives up the jackpot prize when 5 wild symbols appear on the 15th payline of the slot. Major Millions regularly pays out ‘life changing’ jackpot prizes, having paid out over 30 huge jackpots over the years.

The Major Millions jackpot is dwarfed by another Microgaming slot with a huge progressive jackpot, which is Mega Moolah. The current jackpot total on this slot is over $9m and growing rapidly.
