Mega Moolah Jackpot Hit For €13.3mPublished February 6, 2019 by Mike P
Mega Moolah created the 68th millionaire in the history of Microgaming casino sites just before the end of January 2019.
In the online casino sphere, Mega Moolah is a progressive jackpot slot that is widely known for being a millionaire maker. Even a cursory Google search will present a long list of stories about jackpot winners who made their fortunes on the Mega Moolah slot at various Microgaming casino sites across the world.
And the very latest of those stories occurred on Wednesday 30 January 2019 at Zodiac Casino, where an extremely fortunate player was able to walk away with a €13,328,028.16 jackpot. All in all, that is the 68th player who has become a millionaire courtesy of the Microgaming progressive jackpot network.
All through January, excitement had been growing in unison with the ever-climbing progressive jackpot. Following weeks of growth, the value eventually surged past the €20 million mark. And that was a first time since the Mega Moolah progressive slot was introduced at Microgaming casinos in 2006.
Third Largest Microgaming Progressive Jackpot
When delving back into the record books, it turns out that the Zodiac Casino player’s €13.3 million windfall was the third largest in the history of Microgaming progressive jackpots. The top jackpot was worth €18,915,872.81 in September 2018, while the runner-up of €17,879,645.12 earned a 2015 GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® title for a mobile jackpot.
The latest Mega Moolah jackpot winner will have been delighted to learn that the entirety of their €13.3 million winnings will be paid in a single lump sum, rather than instalments, as per the terms and conditions of the Microgaming network of progressive jackpot games, which have now paid out more than €1 billion worth of winnings.
Just a few days after the January 2019 win, the Mega Moolah jackpot had already surpassed the €9 million mark. The next victor will be fortunate just to win, let alone doing so in the 30 minutes it took the previous winner.
