A Lucky Canadian Hits a Staggering Mega Moolah Jackpot

Since paying out its first-ever jackpot, back in 2008, Microgaming’s Mega Moolah game has become one of the most popular progressive jackpot video slots. And it’s easy to see why.

Rightfully earning the nickname “The Million Maker”, Mega Moolah has regularly been featured in the news, as it has managed to change lives of so many punters.

Now, Mega Moolah has succeeded in changing yet another life, as one lucky player right here in Canada has won an eight-figure jackpot while playing this exciting release.

A Fantastic Feat

The Isle of Man-headquartered developer of online gambling content has proudly announced that a player from Canada hit a staggering prize worth €10,735,716.84 (around C$16.4 million) at Jackpot City online casino.

The lucky Canadian will receive his prize in a lump sum, which is standard practise when it comes to paying out prizes won at the developer’s progressive jackpot network – the largest one in the industry.

Setting New Records

Since its launch, Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network has awarded more than €1.1 billion (C$1.7 billion) in prizes. When it comes to 2019, the network has paid out over €26 million (around C$40 million) in various jackpots. According to Microgaming, more than 150 players have managed to win prizes worth €10,000 or more.

Mega Moolah offers not one, but 4 progressive jackpot slots – Mini, Minor, Major and Mega, with the latter being the one capable of awarding seven or eight-figure sums. Players from all over the world enjoy this slot in hopes of hitting the coveted jackpot, whose starting value is set at 1 million, no matter the currency in which the game is played.

The slot’s average prize is around €5.4 million (C$8.2 million), which is enough to realize why is this game so popular. It should be noted that Mega Moolah holds the Guinness World Record for the largest progressive jackpot ever paid out. In September 2018, a player at Grand Mondial Casino claimed a fantastic prize worth €18,915,872.81 (C$28.8 million), after making a 75 cent bet while playing the famous slot on his Android device.

The developer’s progressive jackpot network offers a wide selection of exciting releases, with more titles added to the offering on a regular basis.

One of the games recently added to Microgaming’s portfolio is a progressive jackpot slot titled Atlantean Treasures Mega Moolah, developed by Neon Valley Studios. Another new addition is Wheel of Wishes by Alchemy Gaming, which features the upgraded version of the company’s WowPot jackpot.

According to information provided by the gaming giant, players can look forward to many new progressive jackpot titles in 2020, including the upcoming Absolootly Mad Mega Moolah – set to go live in early May. Of course, there will be many new regular slots as well.
