This weekend was a ‘life changer’ for one player spinning the reels on progressive jackpot slot Mega Moolah. He managed to trigger the top jackpot prize of $4,278,260 (£3,202,030 or €3,617,723) on this Microgaming-networked slot.
The Mega Moolah jackpot is well known for being one of the biggest jackpots around and currently holds the record for the biggest winner of an online jackpot to date, with a £13.2m ($20.1m or €17.9m) paid out to a UK player in in October 2015. However, in more recent times the slot has been paying out more frequently, with the jackpot being won 3 times in the last 6 weeks.
This latest win falls slightly short of the average win on Mega Moolah, which is $5.1m. However, I can’t see that bothering the winner who has become the latest overnight millionaire from this popular jackpot slot.
