It is rare for a new slots game to give a big payout just days after release. However, this is exactly what happened with a recent title from Microgaming. It is called Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon WowPot Megaways. As the name suggests it is set in a fantastical underwater environment. 

Big payout for Microgaming hit

Players will tend to be more enticed by slots that provide a sense of escapism. For this reason some of the biggest ones are set in fictitious environments. If readers want to explore the very best games of this genre they can utilize SlotsRank to find the ideal one for their specific tastes.

In the case of Ancient Fortune: Poseidon WowPot Megaways a significant payout of more than €3.8 million was made. This occurred just four days after its release in late August 2021. The win was made at Videoslots Casino. The mythology inspired online slots game has achieved a great amount of buzz after the event. This is not surprising as it is so rare for such a large jackpot to be attained so soon after the title goes live.

The game was developed by the well known Triple Edge Studios. Microgaming has exclusive rights to it. For the first time a Megaways mechanic has been featured alongside a WowPot progressive jackpot. The latter made its debut in February 2021. 

It is not the first time however that a large jackpot win has been attained in 2021. Over €17,000,000 was paid out in April of that year. However the latest win from Ancient Fortune: Poseidon has eclipsed it. It seems likely that as a result more players will turn to games that offer WowPot.

The progressive jackpot network from Microgaming is no stranger to awarding wins on online slots. It has given out 2.6 million of them. This equates to over €143 million up to September 2021. 

In response to the recent large payout a CEO for Microgaming called it "amazing" and "impressive". Meanwhile the Head of Commercials for Videoslots stated that they were thrilled to provide players access to the game.

Whilst Ancient Fortune: Poseidon may be one of the few titles to give such a high payout it is not the first to be set within a fantasy kingdom. A wide range of these games are designed to transport players to imagined worlds. They utilize colorful graphic design and smooth animations to create a fun experience. These games tend to be most immersive when they are part of the video slots genre.

Standard video games will often contain an underwater level. This has been a regular trope in the medium since Nintendo's Super Mario was released. It is therefore understandable that Microgaming would want to release online slots that take place entirely within this environment. 

The long history of aquatic levels means that animators also have a wide array of example to take inspiration from. If Ancient Fortune: Poseidon becomes more popular thanks to this recent news then perhaps even more slot games will be focused on the aquatic deep.
