The Mega Moolah slot game’s progressive jackpot has just made someone a multi-millionaire

Playing on a mobile device, the punter hit the record-breaking progressive jackpot last Tuesday, earning a whopping €6,681,487. Microgaming, the company which developed the game, and administers the progressive jackpot wins, will pay the cash in one lump sum, as per its policy. The player was playing on the Zodiac casino when the jackpot was won.

A record breaking tradition

Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network has so far paid out over €647 million. The system works by Microgaming collecting a small amount from plays of its progressive jackpot games across any casino it supplies. The sum total of these small amounts gradually builds into totals very often into the multi-millions.

‘CF’ became the latest success story when he hit the jackpot playing on his mobile phone. ‘CF’ received the welcome promotion of 80 chances to become a millionaire for only €1, and he is now the second multi-million jackpot winner of this promotion since the start of the year.

Players should know that Zodiac’s offer is for new customers only. The minimum deposit amount is £20 ($25) for all subsequent deposits after the initial welcome deposit. Zodiac also offers four other bonuses after the initial welcome offer, including a £100 deposit match bonus.

Mega Moolah already holds the Guinness World Record for ‘Largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game’, as well as the largest ever mobile jackpot win. From a $0.30 spin, UK player Jon Heywood was the lucky soul who won the record jackpot of €17,879,645.12, or $19.3 million at today’s exchange rate, in 2015.

“Mega Moolah has consistently made the headlines since launching over ten years ago, and it seems set to continue that trend”, said David Reynolds, a games publisher at Microgaming, before congratulating the player and Zodiac on the “life-changing” win.


Welcome to the power of progressive jackpots. Players looking for a huge, eye-watering, life-changing one off-win should look for slots labelled as having progressive jackpots. They build all the time and most online casinos, or the developer of the game itself, should make clear how much a progressive jackpot is currently worth. For instance Microgaming’s progressive jackpot page shows all of its progressive jackpot totals. For example, Mega Moolah, despite just paying out, now sits at €4.459 million ($4.83 million), at the time of writing.

As a player, you have got to be very lucky to win, but as is the case with major national lotteries, you’ve got to be in it to win it.
