Microgaming's Mega Moolah Slot Creates Another Multi-MillionairePublished November 18, 2016 by Ivan P
Marcus Goodwin has become the latest Mega Moolah millionaire after winning the huge $11.6 million jackpot earlier in November.
Mega Moolah, probably the best known progressive jackpot slot in the world, has created another millionaire. This time, the lucky player won $11.6 million testing his luck at YakoCasino. Although many players try every day, this time around it was Marcus Goodwin's time to get lucky.
Nice Christmas Present
Marcus Goodwin could hardly contain his excitement after he hit the massive Mega Moolah jackpot - and why should he? It's not every day you get to win $11.6 million playing slots. For most people, it never happens in their lifetime, which makes the lucky few all the more excited.
Goodwin, who posted a YouTube video to share his win with the world, was at the same time grateful and shell-shocked. The lucky winner explained he intends to use the money to buy a nice, big house and take his family to vacation in Africa. We don't know what he plans to do with the rest.
Creating Millionaires Since 2008
The Microgaming's Mega Moolah slot is a progressive game featured on all online casinos offering Microgaming games. The progressive jackpot is shared across the network and given the company's online presence, it is hardly a surprise it reaches head-spinning amounts.
The first-ever Mega Moolah millionaire was created back in 2008, when a Finish player won $5.5 million. The slot's popularity has kept growing, with the jackpot constantly increasing. Every year since 2008, a few lucky players had their lives turned around thanks to Mega Moolah.
The record jackpot hit in October 2015, when Jonathon Heywood from the UK won an amount of £13.2 million. This year, four players, including Goodwin, have already won huge Mega Moolah jackpot's, although Goodwin's win tops the list.
With a month and half to go in 2016, we could still see another player take home life-changing money. This happened in 2012, when a lucky punter became the fifth winner just as the year was drawing to an end.
