The progressive jackpot slot Mega Moolah is holding onto its gigantic total, despite being well over its average payout time. At it stands, the jackpot has reached £8,728,887 and shows no signs of slowing down.  But will it reach a major milestone of £9m, something it has never done before or will it be won before then?

The average payout time for Mega Moolah is 85 days, but it has not been won for 111 days now. The last winner of the Mega Moolah jackpot was back in April, taking the jackpot for $7.5m.

Mega Moolah, which is also linked with the Dark Knight slot, is network-linked with casinos that are Microgaming licensees and carry theses slots. Each real-money spin that is made on these slots makes a small contribution to a jackpot total. Now that it has reached such record levels, it will grow even faster with the increased number of players drawn to it.

Despite growing to a staggering total, Mega Moolah has some way to go to beat the world record jackpot win. That was set at on the NetEnt progressive jackpot slot Mega Fortune. A Finnish player bagged an eye-watering €17,861,813 (equivalent to £15,143,600 or $22,974,400) in January 2013.
