Mega €6.5million Progressive Jackpot Paid By Microgamings' Mega Moolah SlotPublished July 2, 2021 by Arthur M
The Mega Moolah online slot range from Microgaming has paid out a seven-figure prize for the 100th time, with a €6.5 million jackpot awarded to an Optibet.com player.
A lucky Optibet.com player has become the 100th person to scoop a seven-figure progressive jackpot prize from Microgamings' Mega Moolah network.
This €6,597,136.10 progressive prize is the fifth of 2021, and comes shortly after a record-breaking win of €19.4 million was claimed from the Absolootly Mad Mega Moolah slots game. It takes the total paid out across the Microgaming progressive network to a vast €1.4 billion! €103 million of that total has been awarded since the start of 2021.
The Optibet.com winner was playing Mega Moolah when they landed this life-changing prize. Like all Microgaming progressive jackpots, it was paid out as a lump sum, making the fortunate winner an instant multi-millionaire.
About The Mega Moolah Network
Launched in 2006, the original Mega Moolah game is a cartoon-style slot themed around African wildlife. Along with a vast jackpot, it has wild symbols and free spins with multipliers.
The range has expanded since then to include games for all tastes, with slots such as Atlantean Treasure, Fortunium, and Absolootly Mad all coming in Mega Moolah versions. A small portion all bets placed on Mega Moolah games is set aside in a progressive 'pot', until a lucky player scoops the entire prize, after which, it resets and immediately starts to grow once more.

John Coleman, CEO at Microgaming, comments: “I’m delighted to see another big jackpot win so soon after Mega Moolah dropped for €19.4 million in April. My congratulations go to Optibet and their player on this brilliant win. This is something of a milestone for Microgaming, being the 100th euro millionaire made on our progressive jackpot network.”
Chris Davis, CPO at Optibet, adds: “We were thrilled to hear the news that one of our players had struck the Mega jackpot on the legendary Mega Moolah. Not only was it the first Mega jackpot to be hit at Optibet.com, but it’s also a tremendous multi-million-euro prize!”
