One lucky player won a staggering $3,390,332.58 progressive jackpot on the Microgaming-developed Mega Moolah slot this week. The sum, equivalent to €2.72m or £2.14m, is the largest win on this jackpot slot for over five months.

The female winner, who has been identified simply by the initials I.R.,won the progressive jackpot whilst playing the animal-themed slot at the Golden Tiger Casino earlier this week.

It was revealed that I.R. had been playing the millionaire-maker slot on her smart phone and was only placing small bets on the slot. However, she soon triggered the multi-million dollar progressive jackpot to become the third millionaire winner at Golden Tiger Casino this year alone.

I.R. said “I had a feeling I was going to win big and I was telling my friends that one day I would win a house – this is even bigger than a house!”

The huge jackpot win is just a bit smaller than a recent huge win on Mega Moolah by a player back in May, who walked away with more than €3million.

Mega Moolah is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot where the reels are packed with different animals representing the symbols. Giraffes, lions, elephants and antelopes are just some of the creatures that appear on the reels.

The monkeys act as the Scatters and the player can earn 15 free spins if they hit at least three of those symbols across the reels giving the player a huge opportunity to win some big pay outs by completing winning combinations.

The progressive jackpot bonus feature is randomly triggered on this slot and when it is triggered the player is presented with a spinning wheel that is divided up into different sections. The player must then spin the wheel and hope that the wheel’s ticker stops in the section of the wheel that is labelled as the Mega Jackpot.

Mega Moolah was released by slots developer Microgaming back in 2006 and can be played at a number of online casinos that have Microgaming slots.
