Microgaming's Fish Party Slot Pays Out the Biggest Jackpot Ever

Publish: 16.11.2018

When talking about progressive slots that pay out massive jackpots, Microgaming is definitely one of the first names that pop to our head.

The champion of staggering payouts is Microgaming’s Mega Moolah video slot, which has over the years become synonymous with life-changing jackpots. Just recently, this 2006 release managed to set a new Guinness record by awarding an unbelievable jackpot worth €18.9 million! That’s over C$28 million!

However, Mega Moolah is not the only game in the portfolio of the renowned developer that has the power to award neat prizes. One of the games from the developer’s line-up has made the headlines after paying out its biggest jackpot ever.

A Record-Breaking Prize

And although the sum can’t be compared to the prizes awarded by Mega Moolah, it’s an important achievement for a title that has been in the market since 2016.

The video slot in question is Fish Party, which awarded a neat jackpot worth €317,849.78 in total, which will be split between three players who scored the win on October 17, in the €20 buy-in tournament.

Fish Party makes the headlines!

This substantial prize pool will be shared between one Betsson Casino and two RedKings players: Grndonlck will take home €63,569.96, Check_Norris won €95,354.93, while the biggest part of the prize went to a player called SipsCommin, who hit €158,924.89.

As we’ve already mentioned, Fish Party was launched two years ago, and although its history has been a short one, it has paid out a total of 22 jackpots since its launch, with more than €1.2 million awarded to lucky punters.

More to Come in the Future, That’s for Sure

The game has been especially generous in the last three months, awarding three jackpots. At this moment it’s quite clear to say the game is becoming more and more popular among punters. Could its popularity one day match the fame of Mega Moolah? It’s still too early to say.

Commenting on the news of the record-breaking jackpot, Head of Poker at Microgaming, Alex Scott, said this had been an exciting three-handed battle and congratulated the lucky winner. He added the company’s unique Fish Party progressive jackpot SNG had awarded over €1.2 million in jackpot prizes, a milestone Microgaming was very proud of, and stated that at this rate, it wouldn’t be long until the game hit two million!

Fish Party video slot is a five-reel three-row game, with 243 different ways to win on offer, with a vibrant and dynamic underwater theme featuring crisp graphics, beautifully designed symbols, and a memorable playing experience. To help players grab rewarding prizes, the game has a wide list of features such as the free spins bonuses, multipliers, wilds, and scatters.
