Mega Moolah Player Hits the Jackpot
A player in the UK has hit the jackpot just in time for Christmas with Microgaming’s Mega Moolah slot. After betting just €7.25 at Genesis Casino, the lucky player won a staggering seven-figure jackpot of €3,252,353.70. There’s no guessing who that lucky winner is though, as they have decided to remain anonymous.
A Mega Moolah Win
Somewhere in the UK, someone will be feeling particularly festive this year, as the lucky winner of over €3.2 million. As the winner has decided not to reveal their identity, who hit this multi-million jackpot will have to remain a mystery. We do know a few key facts about the mega windfall though.
The Mega Moolah jackpot was won on November 8th, 2019. The winner was playing at Genesis Casino and had bet just €7.25 on the winning game. That €7.25 quickly turned into a huge payout of €3,252,353.70. The money will be paid out to the winner in one lump sum, rather than in annuities, as is often seen with lottery wins.
“Congratulations to Genesis Casino and the lucky winner on this truly life-changing win. Mega Moolah has once again delivered an amazing payout. Our industry-leading progressive jackpot network has now paid out €1.1 billion and continues to lead the way, offering players thrilling and rewarding gameplay experiences.”– Andrew Clucas, Chief Operating Officer, Microgaming
The Mega Moolah slot is part of Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network. November marked the slot’s 13th anniversary since its initial launch in 2006. Over the course of this year, more than €121 million has been paid out across more than 1.7 million jackpots by Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network. This lucky winner joins more than ten other winners who have won seven and eight-figure jackpots this year on the network. The sum of these winnings is over €50 million. A further 570 players have won sums of more than €10,000.
Players of the Mega Moolah slot will be familiar with the large payouts it can offer. This safari-themed slot is arguably Microgaming’s best performing slot for players. Mega Moolah set a Guinness World Record for ‘Largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game’ in 2015. In 2018, that record was broken by none other than Mega Moolah itself! The 2018 win, won at Grand Mondial Casino set the record at a whopping €18,915,872.81. That
Earlier this month, Microgaming announced its latest deal with Alchemy Gaming. Microgaming agreed to add Alchemy to its network of independent game developers. It even went as far as to display its brand new ‘Wheel of Wishes’ slot at this year’s SIMGA convention in Malta.
