Microgaming Progressive Games – Games With Progressive Jackpots by Microgaming

Microgaming is one of the most prominent names in the online casino industry and one of its true pioneers. The company has been around since the 1990s, and was instrumental in getting the very first online gaming site off the ground. Despite its longevity, Microgaming continues to power many online casinos in various countries, and it is still innovating in areas like mobile real money gambling.

A discussion of Microgaming's progressive jackpot games has to start with Mega Moolah, the reigning king of progressive slots games. In May 2009, a player hit for over 6.3 million euros, becoming the biggest single game winner in the history of online casinos. Not surprisingly, Mega Moolah has remained one of the top draws among Microgaming slots, and its brand has expanded to include 5 Reel Drive, Summertime and Isis themes that stand alongside the original. Major Millions and King Cashalot are other similar slots games that have paid out big progressive jackpots, and they've been joined more recently by a slot machine based on The Dark Knight movie series. Numerous slots games with more generic themes are also available.

Microgaming also has options for people looking for progressive jackpot possibilities while playing table games. Roulette Royale is a very unique take on traditional European roulette, with an extra side bet that can pay big if the same number hits multiple times in a row. Caribbean Draw Poker is a simple to learn poker game with a big progressive payout to anyone who assembles a royal flush, and Cyberstud and Poker Ride work in a similar fashion, connected to multiple online casinos. Video poker fans can try to chase down big money playing Jackpot Deuces or SupaJax. All told, the Microgaming Progressive Network has 41 different progressive games and has paid out over 320 million euros since it was created, bolstering the company's claim that it is the largest such network on the internet.

Because Microgaming is such a respected name, it has been at the forefront of the push to expand online casino gaming into new markets, and the company has pushed into places like Denmark, Belgium and Spain just since the beginning of 2012. In places that have long allowed online gambling, its progressive games can be found at places like Ladbrokes Casino, 32Red Online Casino, and the casinos in the Carmen Media Group and Fortune Lounge Group.
