Jackpot! Lucky Player Starts the New Year with a Huge €6 Million Mega Moolah Win

Just a couple of weeks into 2017, Microgaming's Mega Moolah created another millionaire who became €6 million richer after spinning some reels at €0.50 a spin.

Mega Moolah jackpot rides again! A lucky player picked the right time to try his luck at Captain Cooks Casino and ended up winning a sum of €6,078,249 on Monday, January 16. The player who goes by 'N.C.' logged in from his mobile device to have some fun, and ended up winning a truly life-changing amount.

Another Mega Moolah Millionaire Created

Like all other jackpot winners, 'N.C.' will receive the huge win in a single lump sum. What makes the win even more impressive is the fact the player was wagering only €0.50 a spin. But, it isn't the first time something like this happened.

Mega Moolah is probably the best-known online progressive slot in existence, and this Microgaming game has created a fair share of millionaires over the years. Many of them are just casual players who played small wagers.

The game holds the Guinness world record for the largest-ever online payout. It was Jonathan Heywood from the UK who took home £13.2 million (around €17.8 million at the time) back in 2015. Heywood was also betting just 25p a spin, making this tremendous score even more impressive.

It all started in April of 2008 when the first jackpot was won. It was to the tune of $5.5 million and went to a lucky player in Finland. The rest is, as they say, history.

Words of Congratulation

Words of congratulation for the latest winner came from the casino and the company behind the slot, Microgaming. Microgaming's David Reynolds was equally excited about the winner and the fact that Mega Moolah keeps making the headlines with frequent life-changing wins.

There is no denying that Mega Moolah's popularity has grown over the years and there is hardly a casino player who doesn't know about the game and its potential to deliver mind-blowing payouts. A new jackpot has already started to accumulate, and the only question is how big it will grow this time around?
