Microgaming, one of the world's biggest providers of online casino games, has
announced that players at two casinos that carry its games, have each won
multi-million pound jackpots in the space of a week.
According to a press release from Microgaming, two players hit progressive
jackpots respectively on slot games linked to its Progressive Jackpot Network,

Spin Palace Casino Player Wins £1.3 Million
The second win happened in the same week at another Microgaming
online casino, Spin Palace Casino. This time, the winner took home the sum of

less than three days when he hit the jackpot, showing that beginner's luck is
not something that should be scoffed at.
Both the Platinum Play Casino winner and the Spin Palace Casino
winner will be able to enjoy their winnings immediately, thanks to the
Microgaming Jackpot Network's policy to pay players out in one lump sum, instead
of in installments as some other casino software companies do.
The Microgaming Progressive Jackpot Network is considered one of
the highest paying in the entire industry. Since its inception in 1999, the
network has paid out £320 million to lucky players.
At present there is over £3.3 million up for grabs on slot games
linked to the Microgaming Progressive Jackpot network.
