It appears Microgaming’s huge progressive jackpot slot Mega Moolah has done it again and made someone infinitely more wealthier then they were less than a week ago. A very lucky player going by the inititals N.C. scooped a staggering €6,078,249 ($6,537,569 or £5,225,779) last Monday at Captain Cooks Casino. According to the casino, the player was wagering 50¢ a spin on their smartphone when the win dropped in.
The win is certainly over the average ‘Mega’ jackpot payout on Mega Moolah, which is currently €5,026,564 and occurring every 12 weeks approximately. However it is not the biggest win recorded, which was worth around €17.8m when it occurred in 2015. The win was so big that it actually went into the Guiness Book of Records for the biggest online jackpot won at a casino.
What is staggering is that in less than a week the Mega Moolah ‘Mega’ jackpot has already reached €4,112,100, helped largely by a seed fund that kicks it back off at €1m.
