Online Casino News From Microgaming


There are two exciting news items from Microgaming, the leading software provider to online casinos. One is of an event scheduled to happen in the first week of May and the other of an event happened earlier this month.

The announcement says, “Microgaming’s May game release is steamed to perfection.” And it has to be because the title is Win Sum Dim Sum. This continues the regular stream of Chinese themed online slots that Microgaming has been releasing of late. Win Sum Dim Sum is a 5x3 reels and nine paylines slot machine. The reels are set in a Chinese restaurant and adorned with teapots and bamboo steamers. Those players who know their Chinese cuisine well will recognise the appetising symbols that include various dim sum delicacies such as Ha Gow and Shu Mai. This appealing video slot is packed with delicious features from Microgaming. 15 free games are activated when three or more teapot symbols land anywhere on the reels. The bamboo steamer is the wild symbol. If it lands on reel 3 in the base game, and on reels 2, 3 or 4 in the free games, it will expand to cover all rows and contribute to a winning combination. With a minimum bet of just 0.10, Win Sum Dim Sum has wins of up to 75,000 credits. The slot will be live at Microgaming online casinos like Spin Palace and Royal Vegas on desktop and mobile devices on May 4. Neill Whyte, Head of Product Channels at Microgaming, said, “May’s game release pairs trusted game features with a fun theme set for global appeal. This game adds to our growing cross-platform offering whilst expanding our popular Asian-themed catalogue.”

The Mega Moolah Microgaming progressive jackpot network, which is the largest in the industry, has paid out over €574 million to date. The latest hit took place on April 8 when a Spin Palace online casino player hit the Mega Moolah jackpot, taking home a windfall payout of €6,905,670.81. The full amount was paid out to the winner in a single payment. The spokesperson from Spin Palace congratulated the winner on behalf of everyone at the online casino. The spokesperson said, “It is always an incredible feeling to have one of our players become an instant millionaire.” The press release pointed out that in October 2015 another player at a Microgaming online casino won the GBP equivalent of €17,879,645.12 on this same progressive jackpot. That win set a Guinness World Records title for the largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game.
