Mega Moolah on a Rampage – Two Jackpot Wins in 48 Hours!
March 15th, 2019 2.00pm
Mega Moolah has done it again – this time, one of the most popular progressive slots of all times broke a new record, paying not one, but two hefty jackpots within only 48 hours! On Tuesday, March 5, a very lucky Casino Rewards player triggered €11,546,388, which is Microgaming’s fourth highest jackpot. The entire affair wouldn’t even raise an eyebrow, had it not been for a new jackpot hit only one day later at the same casino. The new mega win amounted to “only” €2,201,120, shattering to pieces everything we thought we knew about progressive jackpot slots.
Mega Moolah’s Track Record
When it comes to progressive jackpots hit frequency, nobody does it quite like Mega Moolah. So far, Microgaming has paid over €1 billion, giving birth to exactly 71 millionaires. In 2015, Guinness World Records credited the developer for paying (up until then) the largest jackpot in an online slot. The money was won by Mr Jon Heywood from Cardiff and the total amount came up to €17,879,645 (£13,209,300).
As it seems, not a month goes by without Mega Moolah releasing several million euros to one of the players who happen to be in the right place at the right time. A new record was set in September 2018, when the jackpot was dangerously close to €19M; this time, an anonymous player scooped €18,915,872.81 on a 70-cent bet placed via Android device.
A Few Words on Mega Moolah
Mega Moolah was released back in 2006, featuring four progressive jackpots (Mini, Minor, Major, and Mega) and 88.12% RTP. Interestingly enough, Mega Moolah has medium volatility, which is not common for progressive slots.
