The progressive jackpot which connects several Microgaming slots and which has been climbing for several months now has been won by a Canadian player called Mark A. The lucky Canadian netted a world-record-breaking CA$7.56 million while playing from his mobile device at Royal Vegas Mobile Casino.
“Mark A had only been a player with us for 7 days; I don’t think you could ask for a better start to playing at Royal Vegas! One of our senior VIP executive hosts had the pleasure of phoning Mark to confirm the win and to congratulate him; to say he was elated is an understatement,” said a spokesperson for the casino.
“Everyone here at Royal Vegas would like to congratulate Mark on this mammoth and historic win,” added the spokesperson. This latest win, which converts to approximately €5,375,695.08 / £3,881,116,00 is the largest ever progressive jackpot paid out on mobile and it takes the total amount of progressive jackpot winnings paid out on Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network to more than €487 million (CA$647 million / £351 million).

Crazy Vegas Casino is one of several great gaming sites controlled by a company called Vegas Partner Lounge.

You will also be able to claim some kind of guaranteed new player welcome bonus when signing up to any Microgaming casino.

The great thing about this innovative platform is that none of the games’ quality has been compromised and there is still no need to download any kind of programs from the internet.

Microgaming recently announced via an official press release that it has obtained a licensing agreement from Universal Partnerships & Licensing to develop a new branded online slot machine called Bridesmaids. This new slot is based on the 2011 hit comedy from Universal Pictures which featured an all-star cast including Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Melissa McCarthy and Rebel Wilson.
Speaking about this latest branded slot was Microgaming’s CEO, Roger Raatgever, “Bridesmaids is a comedy classic! The storyline, characters and genuinely hilarious stand-out scenes combine to make it one of the most successful comedy films of all time.” We obtained these comments from the official Microgaming website.
The new Bridesmaids online slot machine will have 5 reels and 40 winning paylines and it with a multi-level bonus round and cinematic clips from the movie for players to enjoy. It will be launched across multiple platforms and it will join an impressive portfolio of branded slots from Microgaming such as Game of Thrones, Terminator 2, Jurassic Park, Battlestar Galactica, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Tomb Raider 1 and 2, Playboy and Hitman.
“We’re thrilled to have signed another licensing agreement with Universal. Furthermore, the brand adds a completely new dimension to our branded game portfolio – we’re excited for its launch later in the year,” added the CEO. This award-winning online casino software provider will also be releasing two new slots in March 2015 and these will include Golden Princess and Lucky Leprechaun.
Net Entertainment will also be releasing two new online slot machines at some point over the next few weeks. These new slots will include Steam Tower and Spiñata Grande and they both have 5 reels and multiple paylines. NetEnt was also recently in the news for another reason. This leading online casino software provider scooped the Slot Provider/Supplier Product of the Year award at the International Gaming Awards 2015.
“To walk away with the Slot Provider/Supplier Product of the Year for both online and land based is a superb achievement. Our mission is always to provide leading edge online casino solutions and we’re honoured to be recognized for our hard work,” said the President and CEO of NetEnt, Per Eriksson (words extracted from NetEnt website). In 2014 at the same event, NetEnt won the Innovator of the Year award.
This year’s IGA event took place at The Savoy Hotel in London on February 2nd and Playtech won the iGaming Software Supplier award.

Let’s start by taking a look at some of the biggest winners in January 2015 from various online casinos. The luckiest player was a Swedish player who won a record-breaking €5.7 million from a mobile slot machine called Mega Fortune Touch. This lucky winner was playing on his mobile phone at LeoVegas Mobile Casino.
NetEnt’s Chief Product Officer, Simon Hammon, said “t’s a privilege to announce NetEnt’s Mega Fortune has paid out the largest ever jackpot on mobile. This is the second big win on LeoVegas.com and it underlines the huge profit potential of our pooled jackpot portfolio.” We took these words from the official Net Entertainment website.
Some of the other recent big wins came at various Microgaming casinos. Player C.W. won CA$57,882 at Villento Casino on a slot called Break Away, player M.S. won $59,800 at Quatro Casino on a slot called Mega Moolah Isis and J.L. won £44,294 over at Virtual City Casino on a slot called Treasure Nile. There was also player H.W. who won $55,984 at Grand Hotel, also while playing on the Treasure Nile progressive slot.
“Hi there! I like to play the "Treasure Nile" slot,” said H.W. He then went on to say, “A few days ago I was enjoying myself playing the game when suddenly I saw "Congratulations" on the screen and discovered that I had hit the Jackpot! I was very happy and excited. The win will be very useful to my household finances! Thank you very much.” These comments came from the official Casino Rewards website.
Some of the latest games to have arrived in casinos included Wild Wizards and Double Ya Luck, both from Realtime Gaming (RTG). Microgaming launched a brand new online slot Gung Pow and Net Entertainment (NetEnt) launched a brand new slot called Tornado: Farm Escape. Microgaming is also scheduled to release two new slots at some point over the next few weeks and these new slots will include Golden Era and Cricket Star.

Getting Started at Online Casinos
After you’ve chosen the online casino you wish to play at you’ll need to choose whether you’re going to play the download version of the online casino or the no download flash instant play version. It’s our suggestion that you opt for the download option as the games are far superior and overall the quality of the gaming experience is much better.
The next thing you’re going to want to is ensure that you have a valid credit card that you can make deposits with at the online casino (Note: All of the sites we feature here accept Visa, Master Card, Amex (Gold, Black and Regular Amex credit cards) in addition to a number of alternative banking options should you decide to use another method at the casino. Also all of the casinos we’ve featured here on our site have the best processing abilities making it far easier and quicker to make deposits and start playing.
Once you’ve successfully deposited you’ll need to select and choose a game you’d like to start playing and that’s about it. Keep in mind that there’s a huge selection of games typically available online that you can choose from and play so we recommend playing several casino games not just one or two to get experience in several different game types. All of the online casinos offer several online slots, blackjack, video poker, roulette and other game type variations so there’s definitely no shortage of games to choose from and play.
Something to keep in mind is that should you win a sizable jackpot you should definitely consider cashing out and walking away. So many times players will win a nice jackpot and start playing which is a big mistake. Continuing play after a jackpot is won often times leads to players putting their winnings back into the casino so it’s always advised that if you win a good amount that you cash out as soon as you possibly can.
Cashing out your winnings will sometimes depend on their terms and conditions which often time include up 48 plus hour delays in your ability to withdrawal funds from an online casino. It’s always worthwhile to check the “banking options, cashier, or other relevant sections for the terms and conditions of such restrictions so that you’re not all of a sudden freaked out at your inability to withdrawal your funds immediately from the casino.
