Microgaming’s Mega Moolah further cements its status as one of the highest paying slots of all time with another huge payout. One lucky British punter, who wishes to remain anonymous, struck the big one on November 8, 2019. The seven-figure jackpot landed off the back of a £6.25 bet which launched the Mega Moolah Jackpot Bonus. This feature is triggered completely at random at any time, no matter the bet level. The wheel is divided into segments; with one lucky white segment the key to picking up the Mega jackpot. In this case the pot was worth a staggering £2,772,916.45 (€3,252,353.70).
This impressive win was picked up at Genesis Casino and will be awarded in one lump sum rather than in annuities. Just for the record, wins on Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network are always made in lump sums. Genesis Casino is basking in the limelight after the huge win propelled them into the spotlight for their 15 minutes of fame. Genesis is a relatively young online casino, launched in 2014 and operated by Genesis Global Ltd based in Malta. The win will help boost their profile as a bona fide millionaire-making casino. They have no doubt experienced an uptick in new registrations following the announcement of the epic seven-figure payout.
The accompanying video to the win not only captures the moment but is compelling footage for any slots player. There is just no way of possibly knowing what is coming up. The feature launches completely unannounced out of the blue according to the rules of the game. One minute, the player is spinning away with just over £100 in the account. They pick up a £7.25 prize, then the next minute the Jackpot Bonus sign lights up the screen, and they are catapulted into the bonus game. Plenty of players have made it this far, but how many dream of hitting the big one? Well, most to be fair, but actually winning it? It is impossible to imagine quite how that would feel.
After this punter picked themselves off the floor, they joined the growing ranks of players who have become millionaires courtesy of Mega Moolah. The game launched back in 2006 and since then it has paid out €1.1 billion according to Andrew Clucas, the CEO at Microgaming. Indeed, the year 2019 alone has seen the game payout €121 million in prize money. This figure includes 10 lucky winners who scooped seven or eight-figure jackpots.
Mega Moolah might not be the most exciting slot out there, its RTP might be diabolical, but this is not going to stop players lining to have a crack. With consistent headlines and payout figures like those mentioned above, the popularity of the slot shows no sign of abating. This is good news for jackpot hunters. It means there will be plenty of coins flowing into Microgaming’s Jackpot Network for the foreseeable future. And we are bound to see plenty more life-changing wins like this one.
