Microgaming’s Lord of the Rings online slots game was one of the most popular titles of 2011. In addition to offering players an incredible online gaming experience, the game presented players with the chance to win a lucrative progressive jackpot prize. After months of slowly climbing, the jackpot has been hit for the impressive sum of £2 million ($3 million AUD). The game has paid out its fair share of jackpots over the years, but none have been this huge. It has only recently been hooked up to the Mega Moolah jackpot network, one of the biggest on the internet, so that would explain the lucrative amount of this jackpot. $3 million is one of the biggest jackpots that the online casino world has ever seen. The biggest progressive jackpot ever paid out was somewhere in the region of $5 million, but it was awarded several years ago. So, it has been quite some time since the online gambling world has seen a jackpot this big. If the Lord of the Rings online slots game was not already popular enough, it certainly will be now. Players from all over the world will hear this news and begin trying for their chance to win a jackpot as impressive as this one.
