Mega Moolah Pays Out a Jackpot Worth Almost €1 Million
Mega Moolah has definitely become a household name over the last decade, at least among the slots aficionados, and the reason for it is quite simple.
This Microgaming title is definitely one of the most famous progressive jackpots ever made, and the game owes its popularity to the number of life-changing jackpots, it has paid out a number of lucrative prizes since its release.
Say Hello to the New Winner
The latest jackpot was awarded on November 15, when a lucky Grand Mondial Casino punter took home a neat sum of €938,306. And though the jackpot fell slightly short of seven figures, we doubt the winner will object. Still, this win is far behind the average Mega Moolah jackpot, which is around $5 million.
In a short press release following the win, the casino stated the player had joined the site the very day he had hit the staggering jackpot.
Launched in 2006, this five-reel video slot with 25 paylines has a long history of creating millionaires and even holds the Guinness World Record for the biggest online jackpot in history paid out in 2015, worth £13.2 million. Earlier this year, the game awarded the largest mobile jackpot ever.
This was the second Mega Moolah jackpot awarded in November, since almost two weeks before the latest win, another fortunate player managed to grab a massive $3.4 million prize!
More Jackpots on the Way, That’s For Sure
Mega Moolah awarded its first multi-million jackpot back in 2008, and has since paid out more than $800 million!
The game nicknamed the ‘Millionaire Maker’ features a jungle theme, including animals such as lions, antelopes, monkeys, zebras, elephants, water buffalos and giraffes. Although Mega Moolah doesn’t boast a top-notch graphics, it is equally popular among the penny punters and high rollers around the world.
It was also the first Microgaming title to offer more than one progressive jackpots – four, to be precise.
