A lucky player from Canada managed to land the second Mega Moolah progressive jackpot of 2018, adding almost CAD 7.5 million to his bank account.
According to the information we've received from Royal Vegas Casino, about a week ago a veteran Canadian player landed a massive Mega Moolah progressive jackpot to the tune of CAD 7.45 million. This is already the second time in 2018 that Microgaming's most popular progressive slot has awarded a lucky player with its top jackpot.
Mega Moolah Strikes Again
For years now, Mega Moolah has easily been one of the most popular slots found at online casinos. The game owes this popularity to big seven and even eight-figure jackpots accumulated across a large network of casinos featuring the slot.
The latest hit that came at Royal Vegas Casino isn't the biggest one in Mega Moolah's history but it is larger than the average payout which stands at around $5.1 million. The jackpot won in October of 2015 by one Jon Heywood for £13.2 million still remains firmly in the first place as the largest-ever Mega Moolah score.
Going Strong for Almost a Decade
Mega Moolah slot was first introduced back in 2009 as one of the very first large-scale progressive jackpot slots on the internet. As such, it immediately captured the attention of players and it's been going strong ever since. Over the years, Microgaming has introduced a couple of more slots sharing in on the same jackpot, such as Mega Moolah Isis.
The original game features the African safari theme and graphics that are quite decent considering it was created almost a decade ago. To get a shot at one of the four jackpots, players need to enter the jackpot round, which is triggered randomly, where they spin the wheel. There are various fields on the wheel, but only one of them will award the Mega Jackpot, which seeds at $1,000,000.
Royal Vegas is one of numerous Microgaming casinos hosting Mega Moolah slot. The progressive jackpot is accumulate across the network of all the casinos hosting the game, which is why we've witnessed so many big hits over the years, the most recent one being just shy of CAD 7.5 million.
