$16 Million Paid Out in Microgaming Jackpots

13 December 2000

LONDON -- (Press Release) -- Dec. 13, 2000 -- Microgaming has announced that Jackpot Madness, the Microgaming Jackpot Network portal, has exceeded a record-breaking $16,000,000 in total jackpot payouts. This exclusive milestone firmly establishes Jackpot Madness as the world's number one online jackpot destination.

The portal features 5 progressive slots games, the oldest and most popular being Cash Splash. Introduced in October 1998, Cash Splash is a three-reel, three-coin single-line progressive slot machine connected to numerous casinos using the company's proprietary software.

The game's popularity has grown rapidly in two years and is now available at more than 50 online casinos.

Two additional progressive games, ``Wowpot,'' another three-reel, three-coin, single-line progressive slot and ``Lotsaloot,'' a three-reel, three-coin, five-line progressive slot game, were added last April.

These were followed in August by two more games: ``Supajax,'' a video poker progressive and ``Fruit Fiesta,'' a three-reel, three-coin, three-line progressive slot. With thousands of people playing simultaneously across the entire Microgaming Jackpot Network, massive progressive jackpots are won on a daily basis.

The site keeps a running real-time jackpot counter for inquiring gamers, as well as links to casinos offering Microgaming's progressive games. It also features a casino search page where players can select a casino based upon their favorite jackpot game, current jackpot values or the price of placing a jackpot-enabled bet.

Winner interviews are also featured on the site, as well as details about how much money has been won during the month as well as the total Jackpot Madness money paid.

A total of 565 lucky winners have shared in the $16,000,000 jackpot bonanza. The landmark win that pushed Jackpot Madness over the $16 million point was a $50,196.61 jackpot won by Carol D. at King Solomon's Casino December 2.

More than 55 players hit super jackpots in November alone, breaking all previously-held monthly payout records and totaling nearly 2 million dollars. December guarantees to be another exceptional month, with more than $600,000 paid out in the first week, alone.
