The world’s biggest progressive jackpot, Mega Moolah from Microgaming, has just been won at a record figure of €18,915,872, and it was a player from Grand Mondial Casino which got it. It’s the new world record for a progressive jackpot, and it’s still Mega Moolah that holds it.
While the player prefers to keep his anonymity, we do know that the win was triggered on an Android powered device, and that he used a bet of €0.75 for that spin.
€18,915,872 is truly a prize that would change anyone’s life, and the site on which it triggered, on September 28th, 2018, is grandmondial.eu. This casino is one of the gaming sites which are part of a group called Casino Rewards.
It’s already known, but it’s worth mentioning again. As it happens with all progressive jackpots from Microgaming, the win will be given as a lump sum, not through annuities.
Microgaming announced a couple of weeks back that the value of Mega Moolah reached €12 million, and since then there was a lot of build-up to this moment. The previous record, which was broken on September 28th, was worth €17,879,645 and it was given in 2015, so it was surpassed by a considerable amount.
As of right now, Microgaming has paid €948 million through its progressive jackpot network, and they don’t show any signs of slowing down.
The Games Publisher from Microgaming, David Reynolds, declared that they’ve been waiting with baited breath for the jackpot to trigger once again, particularly since the old world record was about to be surpassed. He also mentions how proud they are to be setting a new record. Finally, he concludes with a congratulation to the player that triggered it and to Grand Mondial Casino.
Emma Hall, from Casino Rewards, gives us a few more details about the event. Apparently, it was a 75 cents wager, and the win came after less than 50 spins. The group is extremely pleased that this happened at one of their casinos. They had five other winners of Mega Moolah in the last 12 months, so this is the cherry on top for them.
