Unibet player wins record $9 million on Mega Moolah after just eight spins

  • As-yet unnamed players scoops $9 million (€7.7 million) after just eight spins
  • Whopping Mega Moolah progressive jackpot is a record win at Unibet Casino

A Unibet Casino customer is celebrating after winning a record-breaking sum while playing slots, according to the operator‘s Twitter account. Seasoned players won’t be surprised to learn that the game in question was a familiar millionaire maker: Mega Moolah.

Unibet Mega Moolah

It’s a slot that has lived up to its name over the years, paying out multiple millions with pleasing regularity. This latest win is a whopper though, one which dwarfs previous record wins at Unibet and indeed at most other online casinos.

A millionaire in eight spins

While details of the monster win are still filtering through – Unibet tweeted the news yesterday (see below) – there are a few remarkable details that stand out. Not only is the size of the jackpot impressive but so is the speed with which it was achieved.

It took just eight spins for the anonymous punter to hit the jackpot and help themselves to €7,742,015.53. The game pays out its jackpot every 11 weeks on average at Unibet, with the previous record payout standing at just over €6.7 million.

That’s still a million less than this week’s record-breaker though which has had the lucky punter – not to mention everyone at Unibet casino – jumping for joy.

Inspiration to other players

Microgaming’s Mega Moolah is a 25-payline slot that’s populated by safari animals including lions, giraffes and antelopes. There are four progressive jackpots built in, with the Mega the one to aim for. It’ll pay out a million as a bare minimum, but it can grow to much higher than that as the latest Unibet jackpot reveals.

While NetEnt tend to dominate the progressive slots genre, Mega Moolah, with its 94% RTP, is a game that’s up there with the best of them, both in terms of gameplay and in terms of the number of millionaires it’s created.

Record-breaking progressive jackpot wins are good for business, as they inspire hope in players that next time it could be them.

The odds of doing so might be tiny, but the fact remains that these games have to pay out their top prize periodically and if you happen to be playing at that exact moment in time, there’s a chance that fortune may smile kindly upon you.
