The famous Mega Moolah progressive jackpot has just been triggered by a very lucky player, and he won a prize of more than €6 million as a result. This is probably the most interesting progressive jackpot in Microgaming’s portfolio.
This huge prize, with a value of €6,078,249.33, was won at the Captain Cooks Casino, on January 16th, 2017. The lucky winner was using a mobile device to play, and he triggered the progressive jackpot on it. As usual, since this a Microgaming progressive jackpot, the entire amount will be given at once to that player, rather than relying on a payment plan.
The Casino Rewards Promotions Manager, Emma Hall, declared that the player was a novice, and that he become a millionaire in an instant. N.C. (the winner) used the new player sign-up bonus, which gave him 100 chances for just €5, to be turned into a millionaire. It’s the seventh time that the Millionaire Club gets a new member after a wager of just €0.50.
In case you don’t know much about Mega Moolah, suffice it to say that it’s the game that holds a Guinness World Record for the biggest jackpot ever paid out on a slot machine online. It’s from October 2015, but there was also the biggest ever mobile jackpot that also came from it, in August 2016.
Microgaming is also congratulating the player that hit this huge jackpot, and they’re praising the good start to 2017, where they managed to make someone rich right from the first few weeks.
The jackpot has now reset, and its current value is at a bit over €3.5 million and going up as we speak.
