A huge staple game in the Microgaming portfolio of slots is the jackpot slot game Mega Moolah, we can all come to an agreement with the love that we share for this specific game. It’s vivid colours and wild animals present of the reels, could we wish for a better casino game? Just recently Mega Moolah progressive jackpot produced another winner to be on their wall of jackpot fame, and this very lucky player went home with an absolutely whopping £18,910,668.01 on Friday the 28th of September 2018. This has set a new Guinness World Record for the largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game! Bet you wish you were playing on this day right?!
We recently wrote about the fact that Microgaming had announced that the progressive jackpot tied to the Mega Moolah
video slot had surpassed the £10.3 million mark back in August, and we were all just waiting patiently for the news of someone to hit it. As with any jackpot slot it can come at any time, and any casino. You could have been sitting on the bus on your way to work playing via mobile, or you could have been sitting in the comfort of your home with your legs up and a nice cuppa whilst having a few spins. Any time, any place, it doesn’t matter because when that jackpot is ready to burst it will burst.
Microgaming’s Mega Moolah was their flagship progressive jackpot, it was their baby released late in 2006! It’s hard to believe that this game is over 10 years old and within that time has managed to produce so many millionaires, some of them being from just 1 spin of £0.10, and others being with a little more, but either way this is a slot game that has made many people very happy. Mega Moolah is based on a stunning safari theme, which is quite fitting as we can sometimes feel like lions preying on that big old jackpot pool! It’s not so often we come across safari and African animals in a slot game, but Microgaming loves to be different and in this case it was a big success. Mega Moolah features the network’s largest ever jackpot pool, and contains brilliant in-game features such as Wilds, Scatter symbols, and Extra Spins, but we can’t deny that the main attraction is of course that luxurious jackpot!
The details of the winner are still not very clear, it wouldn’t be unusual if they wish to keep their identity under wraps as I think we can all agree that with a win this big you wouldn’t exactly want to shout it from the rooftops right away, however the website did confirm that the amount won does qualify as a new Guinness World Record. We can almost hear the champagne being popped from here at Microgaming HQ! The last world record was smashed by a £14.8 million payout which occurred back in October 2015 and was awarded to a UK player. Progressive jackpots
will never go out of style, and the more that pool increases in size, the more excitement arises! Next time it could be you, it could be your neighbour, who is to say, all we know is that it’s one of those games where you have to take a chance and be in it, to win it! Good luck!
