- Microgaming’s Mega Moolah pays out a suitable mega jackpot of $8.7 million
- Progressive jackpot payout is the game’s largest ever on mobile
If you’re an online slots fan, it’s a pretty decent time to try your hand at Microgaming’s Mega Moolah online slot – the game, and its progressive jackpots, have been on a bit of a roll lately!
Just one month after paying out a $7.19 million (€6.6 million) prize, the famed progressive jackpot slot has awarded yet another huge prize.
This time, the payout trumped that by a significant margin, reaching the heady heights of $8.7 million (€8 million). But – and you may find this surprising – it wasn’t the huge payout that makes this one unique. What’s different about this particular big win is that Mega Moolah paid out on a mobile device.
The mega-jackpot was won by one lucky punter at Tipico online casino. What makes it that little bit sweeter is that the player had only wagered €6.25, so to cash in on a multi-million jackpot is an impressive feat and it certainly demonstrates just how generous Microgaming’s Mega Moolah can be.
The game is a 25-payline online slot with a fun safari theme that offers players the chance to win jackpots worth over $1.08 million (€1 million). The jackpot pays out every about 11 weeks, and its average prize is worth $4.68 million (€4.3 million). To date, the game has paid out a total of $780 million (€716 million).
However, this is the biggest progressive jackpot ever won by a mobile player, surpassing Mega Moolah’s $8.6 million (€7.9 million) mobile payout in August 2016. The game has beaten its own record and the jackpot continues to climb quickly so the next big winner will be able to cash in on another multi-million prize.
“We are delighted that one of our players won this jackpot with a stake of EUR 6.25, which is the biggest win in our online casino history, and the biggest mobile jackpot payout ever!” says Marlon van der Goes, Chief Commercial Officer at Tipico. “The Mega Moolah games are very popular and this jackpot win is a great success story for the Tipico casino offer.”
