Mega Moolah Delivers Largest Ever Mobile Payout with €8 Million JackpotPublished April 30, 2017 by OCR Editor
Mega Moolah does it again! Microgaming's progressive jackpot was hit lat week for a whopping sum of €8 million by a mobile player, for a wager of €6.25.
Another online gambling landmark history was made last week with the world’s biggest mobile slot jackpot on Microgaming’s Mega Moolah jackpot – a win worth €8,012,153.35 which amounts to $8.7 million.
A €6.25 Investment
The lucky winner who chose to remain anonymous, won the life-changing record-breaking prize while playing on the Tipico network. The wager for this unbelievable win was a meager sum of €6.25.
Breaking a Fresh Record
Last week’s win broke a fresh record set only in last August, when Mega Moolah’s jackpot was hit for €7.968,311.26. This hugely-popular slot has already crossed the psychological threshold of €10 million in the past and as we all remember, set a world record back in October 2015 when it paid an epic sum of €17 million.
The Next Win - Just Around the Corner?
We will not be surprised if the next Mega Moolah jackpot record break will occur soon, as this slot's popularity took a hike with the PR around the many jackpots it has paid out in recent years.
Games Publisher at Microgaming David Reynolds commented on the win, mentioning the meteoric climb the slot's jackpot had in such a short time: "It’s incredible to think in just over a month the mega jackpot climbed from 4.3 million (as at 21 March) to 8 million (as at 25 April)."
Over €716 Million Paid Overall
In Microgaming's PR about the win, the fantastic number of €716 million was quoted as the sum that was paid in total by Microgaming's progressive jackpot network. It will be interesting to see how Mega Moolah's jackpot rises now, once again, after news about the huge jackpot broke.
