The progressive slot Mega Moolah has reached a major milestone as it burst through the £10 million barrier late Wednesday. The elusive jackpot is now 6 weeks over its average payout time and is drawing in lots of players across Microgaming-networked casinos.
The Mega Moolah jackpot has two interesting anomalies that many players are unaware of. Firstly it shares its jackpot with another popular progressive – The Dark Knight slot. Which means this giant jackpot could be won on either game. Secondly, it is paid out at the same level in the currency of the player. So you either get £10m, €10m or $10m if you were to win it today. For players playing in dollars and euros, this means a significant shortfall in your payout at the current exchange rate.
Although Mega Moolah has reached record levels, it still has some way to go to beat the world record set by Net Ent Mega Fortune. The progressive jackpot slot paid out €17.8 million to a player in Finland back in 2013.
