Major Millions Jackpot Falls Shy Of A Million


17 May 2019

On 15th May a player was spinning the reels of the Major Millions slot from Microgaming when Lady Luck pulled up a chair next to them.

The reels aligned, the symbols matched and the big money progressive jackpot kerching’d right into the player’s casino balance.

Sadly however, whilst the game that was being played was Major Millions, the jackpot won was just a little shy of making the winner an overnight millionaire!

The player who took home the most recent jackpot win on this Microgaming title landed a cash prize of just £905,807 and whilst it may be more than the lowest ever jackpot won of £252,043, it still wasn’t a million.

That said, we certainly wouldn’t be turning our noses up if our bank balance increased by over £900,000!

Like many of the wins that happen on the Major Millions slot, we cannot tell you at which online casino the winner was spinning the reels.
