The Microgaming Poker Network (MPN) is celebrating two six-figure jackpot wins being landed within days of each other in its massively popular Fish Party Sit & Go games. The jackpots, which are the seventh and eighth that the game has provided since its launch in July 2016, were worth €207,438 and €128,125, and were achieved from buy-ins of just €10 and €5, respectively.

The Fish Party Sit & Go games are played with just three participants and combine the usual sit and go format with progressive jackpots that can be triggered by a spin of the Fish Party online slot reels. When the three players have bought in as they would to any other sit and go game, the slot reels spin to determine the size of the prize pool that will be up for grabs, and if the jackpot hits then it is the jackpot that will be played for.

The €10 jackpot was won when three players with the nicknames meatmax, snapcalledyou and Betzy fought it out to see who would win the lion’s share of €207,438. All three players knew that they had already won big, but meatmax won the game to take €103,719, snapcalledyou finished in second place to win €62,231 and Betzy brought up the rear to win €41,487.

The three players involved in the €5 jackpot win were fini00, 3PairDraw and momum. It was fini00 who won the game to take the biggest share of the €128,125 prize pool, giving them a first prize of €64,063. 3PairDraw was next best to win €38,437, and momum took €25,625 for finishing in third place.

Even after the Fish Party Sit & Go progressive jackpots have been landed, they grow quickly, having a base level which is 5,000 times the buy-in. That means the progressive for even a €1 jackpot game starts at €5,000, so players at all levels can afford to have a shot at winning disproportionately large prizes no matter how recently the jackpot was won.

‘The MPN is the only poker network in the world which can claim that its Jackpot SNG prizes are truly unlimited,’ said Alex Scott, who is Head of Product (Network Games) at Microgaming, ‘This is the seventh and eighth time respectively that the Fish Party Jackpot has hit and players have hauled in a gigantic prize. I can’t wait to see who wins the next one, and how.’

We congratulate all of the players involved in the two most recent jackpot wins, and wish them continued success in the future. Readers who would like to have a go at winning their own Fish Party Sit & Go jackpot can find the full range of games at 32Red Poker and other venues on the Microgaming Poker Network.
