Betway Kenya has just created a new millionaire. The casino and sports betting giant awarded a player, known only as Henry K, a progressive jackpot of Sh 1.5 million. He was playing Major Millions, one of Microgaming’s most popular 5-reel progressive slots when he landed his impressive prize.

World-Class Progressive Jackpot Games

Much of Betway’s casino section is powered by Microgaming, widely recognised as one of the best casino software brands in the world. Major Millions, Mega Moolah and Cash Splash and its other progressive jackpot slots games play in the usual way, with the added feature of an ever-growing jackpot that can be triggered at any time.

Microgaming’s trademark crisp graphics and smooth functionality are evident in all its progressive slots, and in the case of Major Millions they’re based on a military major who is enjoying the good life now that he’s in retirement. The slot has a tongue-in-cheek humour that makes it very enjoyable to play.

Progressive jackpot games are all linked in a network, with a portion of every bet going towards a central pot. The payout keeps growing until someone triggers and wins it, which can happen at random or when the symbols on the reels line up in a certain way.

After activating the progressive jackpot, players will either be able to claim it immediately or will need to complete a short side game first. Major Millions awards its jackpot when 5 Wild Symbols land on the fifteenth and final payline, which starts with the bottom left-hand reel position, zigzags across the grid and finishes in the bottom right-hand position.

The Latest in a Line of Millionaires

Henry K is the latest Microgaming player to become a millionaire, but the developer has elevated many players to this status over the years. The Microgaming progressive jackpot network is the largest in the world, and the company holds the world record for the largest single payout on a casino game. In 2015 Mega Moolah awarded a payout of more than US$17 million, and then the slot broke its own record in 2018 with a return worth over US$18 million.

Betway’s Popularity Among Kenyans

Henry K has publicly commented on his own excitement at his windfall, explaining that he has enjoyed played casino games for some time and that progressive jackpots are a particular favourite of his. He added that he was grateful to Betway for giving gamblers a platform to have fun and win possible payouts.

With an operating licence from the Malta Gaming Authority and an independent endorsement for game result fairness from eCOGRA, Betway is among the safest online gambling destinations in Kenya. Players like Henry K trust the operator to provide rewarding entertainment in a safe, supported environment. This is exactly what Betway Kenya strives to deliver with its slot and other products, including the recently introduced live dealer section features Deal or No Deal, Blackjack and Casino Hold’em among its award-winning Evolution Gaming titles.
