It has been an incredible few months for Microgaming's most popular jackpot slot game to date. Mega Moolah is constantly making headlines as player after player becomes an instant millionaire, and last week was no exception.
An extremely lucky player collected a mammoth €8,012,153.35 after hitting the progressive jackpot on Mega Moolah slot. Incredibly, this was the highest mobile jackpot win in history.
Even more incredibly, Microgaming beat its own record, with the April 25th win superseding its €7,969,311.26 payout last August.
The lucky player hit the jackpot playing a mobile device, proving that it's possible to win a multi million dollar prize any time and anywhere.
The winner will be taking the prize home in one lump sum. Microgaming's progressive jackpot network makes sure that the winner gets all the money instantly, and does not get paid out in annuities as other software groups work.
Minor Stake, Maximum Payouts
The chief commercial officer of the mobile casino where the jackpot was hit expressed her delight that one of its players hit the jackpot with a stake as low as €6.25.
The executive said that this was the biggest win in the casino's history, as well as the biggest jackpot payout ever.
"The Mega Moolah games are very popular and this jackpot win is a great success story ..." said the CCO.
Also commenting was Games Publisher at Microgaming, David Reynolds, who said: "It's incredible to think in just over a month the mega jackpot climbed from 4.3 million (as at 21 March) to 8 million (as at 25 April). To see our own record for the largest ever mobile jackpot payout break is fantastic."
March Mega Moolah Win
It was only recently, in March, that a player hit the jackpot on Mega Moolah and took home a prize of €6.6 million.
This prize, too, was hit on a mobile device.
Mega Moolah also holds the Guinness World Record for the Largest jackpot in an online slot machine game, from a massive hit in October 2015.
Earlier this year, Microgaming won a prestigious award for excellence in the category of Mobile Product during the 10th International Gaming Awards held in London.
