Games Global has announced that its iconic progressive jackpot WowPot! has finally been hit, paying out a sum of €38,461,200.95.
The win was achieved after striking the WowPot! jackpot on Wheel of Wishes on 20 December 2023, surpassing the previous online jackpot record win of €19.4m hit on fellow Games Global progressive jackpot Mega Moolah.
WowPot! is no stranger to wins, having awarded a previous top jackpot win of €17.5m on All for One Studios’ Book of Atem WowPot! in 2021.
Created by Games Global studio Alchemy Gaming, Wheel of Wishes debuted the four-tier WowPot! progressive jackpot in early 2020. A total exceeding €65m has since been awarded through the game across all jackpot tiers.
The WowPot! jackpot has provided many renowned game titles and wins through the Games Global progressive network since its launch, in part thanks to its starting seed of €2m.
To date, the jackpot has paid out more than €225m to in excess of 5.3 million players in total, across all linked games and jackpot tiers, dropping wins every 15 seconds on average in 2023.
Its ever-growing portfolio of leading titles includes Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon WowPot! Megaways from Triple Edge Studios, 9 Blazing Diamonds WowPot! from SpinPlay Games and Neon Valley Studio’s Queen of Alexandria WowPot!.
Alongside WowPot!, Games Global’s progressive jackpot network is also home to world-renowned Mega Moolah, Ontario-ringfenced Maple Moolah, and newly launched King Millions, which debuted with the release of 9 Masks of Fire King Millions this July.
The long-established network continues to lead the way in the progressive jackpot space, paying out many of the industry’s largest eight-figure sums in history and hitting more frequently than any other progressive jackpot offering.
More than €140m was paid out through the network in 2023 alone, with a win struck every 10 seconds on average.
Andy Booth, chief product officer at Games Global, said: “This is a monumental moment for both Games Global and the entire igaming industry. We could not be prouder to be home to the largest online slot jackpot win.
“We would also like to extend our congratulations to the winner on this celebration. Now that it has been won, our job is to reset it and go again, hopefully making another record-breaking jackpot in the process!”
Rory Harpur, head of studio at Alchemy Gaming, said: “When we debuted Wheel of Wishes back in 2020, little did we know the incredible impact its central progressive jackpot would have. Not only is this latest WowPot! win the first top-tier jackpot to strike on the game, it’s also the largest online slot jackpot win. A truly historic day for the Alchemy team, for our partners at Games Global and in the wider industry.”
