Island of Man based Microgaming know a thing or two about Jackpots. Their progressive jackpot network has paid over £1.1 billion since its inception and it looks like there's plenty more millionaires waiting to be made.
So far this year, eight players joined the millionaire's club after spinning the reels of Microgaming jackpot slots such as Mega Moolah and Major Millions.
The latest winner, a Sweden-based player, walked away with £13 million in August after making a £3 bet on Mega Moolah. Microgaming's progressive jackpot network wins are always paid out as a lump sum, as opposed to annuities.
The previous winner hailed from the UK, and walked away with more than £1.4 million after placing a £3 bet on the same game, Major Millions.

What did Microgaming say about the large number of jackpot winners?
