May 19th, 2020 1.00pm
One of the recent additions to Microgaming’s line-up of games and the company’s renowned progressive jackpot network paid out its first-ever Mega Jackpot a few days ago.
Atlantean Treasures: Mega Moolah was more than generous to a lucky River Bell Casino punter, which hit the staggering prize worth around £6.94 million (or exactly €7,784,425.63) on May 8, thus becoming the latest Mega Moolah Millionaire.
One of the Most Generous Names in the Industry
Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network has so far awarded around £980 million in progressive jackpot prizes, rightfully earning the titled of the largest one in the industry.
As we’re already used to, when it comes to prizes awarded by Microgaming, this life-changing win will be paid out as a lump sum.
If the name of this game sounds familiar, that’s probably because it is, as the original Mega Moolah video slot, which was launched back in 2006, revolutionized the world of progressive jackpot slots.
But first, let’s talk about the game that helped a lucky punter make the headlines.
Launched earlier this year, Atlantean Treasures: Mega Moolah offered a standard layout, and a decent underwater theme, although its looks were far from amazing. The game included several thrilling in-game features, such as respins and expanding Wilds, which did enable players to claim nice prizes. However, they all pale in comparison with the potential payouts offered by the game’s progressive jackpots.
Although the game has been in the market for only a couple of months now, it has so far awarded plenty of prizes to punters across Microgaming’s network of operators.
Since its inception, Atlantean Treasures: Mega Moolah paid a total of 238,594 jackpots – 45 of which were Major jackpots. Translated into hard currency, that’s £12.7 million. The Mega jackpot awarded to a lucky River Bell Casino player was the first-ever such prize paid out by this fantastic Microgaming release.
More Prizes Are Sure to Come in the Future
The most recent seven-figure prize comes only a month after the original Mega Moolah slot paid out a staggering £9.6 million jackpot. We can expect more prizes like these in the future, as Microgaming launched another game bearing the famous Mega Moolah title this month.
Titled Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah brought nice looks, thrilling features, lots of excitement, and of course, the Jackpot feature that leads to winning one of 4 available jackpots. Bearing in mind that Mega Moolah game holds the current Guinness World Record, after paying out a staggering progressive prize of £13,213,838.68 to a UK player Jon Heywood back in October 2015, we can look forward to seeing many new life-changing wins in the future.
And while the news of the fantastic Atlantean Treasures: Mega Moolah prize was travelling around the globe, another lucky player managed to claim a seven-figure prize and make the headlines.
An unnamed punter hit a handsome jackpot of £3.8 million while playing Yggdrasil Gaming’ Empire Fortune slot at Wildz casino!
This game hit the market back in 2016 and quickly became popular due to the size of the payouts it brought. It shares its progressive jackpot prize pool with another equally popular release from Yggdrasil Gaming – Joker Million. So far, these two games have awarded several handsome progressive prizes, worth more than £35 million in total!
Punters across the UK were very lucky as well. One salesman made the headlines earlier this month after winning £400,000 while playing online games, while a lucky woman from Wigan claimed just over £35,000 thanks to online bingo.
Atlantean Treasures: Mega Moolah is one of the latest additions to the Microgaming progressive jackpot network.
