Mega Moolah Jackpot Hits Back to Back Making Two New MillionairesPublished April 22, 2018 by Ivan P
Microgaming's Mega Moolah is now on pace to break the 2017 record, awarding CAD5.7 million and £1.7 million progressive jackpots two days in a row.
The first few months of 2018 have really been kind to players chasing big jackpots as we've had a number of big wins already, only a few months into the year. This trend has continued over the last couple of days, as Microgaming's popular Mega Moolah slot awarded two seven-figure jackpots back to back.
CAD5.7 Million Jackpot for a Lucky Player
The first (and the bigger) of two Mega Moolah jackpots came in on Thursday, April 19, when a lucky Canadian player triggered the massive jackpot playing at Grand Mondial Casino. At the time, the jackpot stood at CAD5,691,921 and the lucky player, whose details remain undisclosed at this point in time, managed to take down this truly life-changing amount.
With this win, Mega Moolah continued its pace of awarding one jackpot each month in 2018, looking to match the 2017 record, when a grand total of 12 jackpots was awarded over the course of the year.
A fun fact about the latest winner that we do know is that he won this life-changing amount playing from his mobile device, proving once again that mobile gambling is becoming increasingly popular, with more and more big winners landing their scores playing from handheld devices.
Mega Moolah Take Two
As if one big jackpot in a month wasn't enough, the very next day, another player managed to trigger the famous bonus wheel and go all the way, winning the main Mega Moolah progressive to the tune of £1.7 million.
Although there is no further information about this jackpot in terms of who won it and at what casino, the fact that two main jackpots came in on the same game two days in a row is quite remarkable. It also goes to show that these jackpots are truly awarded randomly, so anything can happen.
Mega Moolah is the best-known progressive jackpot slot by Microgaming. The jackpot pool is accumulated across the network of numerous online casinos hosting the game, which is the reason why the game regularly awards impressive seven and even eight-figure amounts.
