Player Collects $5.2 Million Mega Moolah PrizePublished November 1, 2011 by OCR Editor
Microgaming slot proves its worth.
One of Microgaming's best known and most loved progressive jackpots, Mega Moolah, was reportedly hit earlier in October by a player from Rewards Casino. Only identified as A.D so far, this lucky player apparently walked away with a staggering €3.85 million ($5.2 million).
This life-changing sum of money will unusually be paid out to the winner in a single lump sum payment. Prizes of this size are typically transferred to the winner through staggered annuity payments but in case particular case, the anonymous winner will have his pockets instantly lined with the massive amounts of cash.
The winner, however, is not only so remarkable because of the sheer size of the prize, but also because the player only placed a 50 cent bet and while using free casino bonus money.
Such a miraculous story only goes to show that Microgaming really can make dreams come true in an instant and that there is a good reason by Mega Moolah is so insanely popular. The minimum top prize is a guaranteed 1 million dollars and the jackpots simply increases from there until it has been hit.
