A Total Of €£3.6 Million Won In 5 Weeks On IGT’s MegaJackpots SlotsDecember 27th, 2015
Five lucky players won a combined £3.6 million on IGT online and mobile slots all in the course of five weeks and all on two lucky casino games.
Back in February 2015 we were massively excited when IGT announced they would be turning two of their very best mobile casino games into progressive jackpot slots.
The slots in question? Why none other than Siberian Storm and the Cleopatra slot.
The MegaJackpots versions of these slot games kept the same great mechanics, but added a huge progressive jackpot that climbs up to a million.
What makes this news particularly special is the fact that over 5 weeks, 5 different players won a life-changing amount on one or the other of these casino slots.
And if you are wondering why so many where won in the UK, it’s mostly just because us Brits love IGT games. And you got to play it, to win it.
Five colossal MegaJackpots in five weeks
Now we should say straight away that the International Game Technology Mega Jackpots don’t climb into the tens of millions of the likes of NetEnt’s Mega Fortune or Microgaming’s Mega Moolah.

At best, they hit around the half a million to a million mark.
Which may not sound like much, but think about the fact of how often they hit, and that they have to climb to sufficient heights in a short time in order to trigger.
So yeah, you might not always end up a multi-millionaire, but we’re pretty sure these five players below didn’t care.
It started with a record breaking £1.3 million / €2 million
Because every story has to start with a bang, and this is the biggest bang of all. Playing on the online IGT MegaJackpots Siberian Storm on November 6th in Stockholm Sweden, the lady in question wasn’t really playing for the jackpot.
She’d been attracted by the cold winter lands, the ferocious tiger theme, and 720 ways to win. Suddenly, completely by surprise, something flashed on her screen.
Was it just coins? Was the slot broken? Had it really happened?
It wasn’t until the CEO of Mr Green casino, and Mr Green himself, showed up at her door in Stockholm, that it finally hit her.
“It took me a while to understand that it was for real. When I won the jackpot, it didn’t say a specific amount, so it was only when Mr Green called me that I began to realise just how much money I had really won.”
Clearly she hadn’t been playing with her eye on the ever climbing jackpots.
It was the biggest it ever climbed to, up to an impressive 1,966,420 – which is always won in the currency it’s played in, in this case euros.

Two further wins in November
So we’ve got the big record breaking win with the icy northern tigers. We leave these cold Siberian winters and head over to the the warm Egyptian Nile, where one queen rules all.
The Cleopatra slot has always been one of the most popular IGT slot games, both at real and online mobile casinos.
So is it any wonder that the MegaJackpots Cleopatra climbs so quickly?
On the 18th of November 2015, a Betfred UK casino player won £593,480 – who wouldn’t be happy with a cool half a million this time of year?
But only 4 days later, on the 21st, the jackpot was back up again, sitting at a wonderful £519,703.
Most slot jackpot hunters thought it would be a little higher, so they ignored it, allowing other players to fill the pot.
One smart Sky Vegas casino player knew there was every chance it would burst and he was right. He walked away with another half a million.
That Queen was feeling generous, but it wasn’t the end.
A further €£1,161,633 wins in December 2015
So that was three big wins in November. But we promised you 5 big wins, and five is what we will deliver.
The problem with the next win however is that it happened at a casino that we personally wouldn’t recommend. But then, we only like the best mobile casinos that provide the best service.
Two MegaJackpots over two nights over two mobile slots
So far, all the wins have been made on the IGT online games, so it’s nice to see that the final two wins in our collection were made on the mobile phone slots.
We start on the night of December 9th, where a player from Ladbrokes decided to stick with our fair queen. He did just the right thing, and walked away with £650,013 jackpot.
Don’t forget, this was only two weeks since it last hit.
But, not to be outdone by Cleopatra, Siberian Storm came back to claim the crown, as another Mr Green player won £511,620 just the next day, on December 10th.
Clearly Mr Green casino is the place to win on the Siberian Storm slot.
What makes these IGT MegaJackpots so special?
Since the games’ debut back in February, they have awarded a series of large jackpots throughout the year, including 12 wins totalling more than €£9.3 million in jackpots.
But that’s not just what makes them special.
What makes them special is the fact that they are based on extremely popular games… that already have huge in-game wins. So you don’t need the jackpot to hit it big, you can actually win big on any spin.
So unlike usual progressive jackpot casino games, where they tend to be low in payouts as they take a percentage to build the pot, the MegaJackpots Cleopatra and Siberian Storm play, and pay, just like the originals.
Except, on the occasional earth shattering moments when they suddenly decide to pay a few millions.
Our advice? There is clearly something in the water at Mr Green as two of those big jackpot wins were won right there. Maybe it’s Cleopatra’s turn to pay big? Last time we checked it was at over 600,000… so could hit any day now and you could be the next big jackpot slots winner.
