The Mega Moolah jackpot has gone over €20 million for the first time since the game’s launch.

The Microgaming cult progressive jackpot video slot Mega Moolah has done it again!

The game, aptly nicknamed “The Million Maker” has once again paid out a multi-million prize, this time at Zodiac Casino where a lucky punter took home a staggering jackpot worth €13,328,028.16!

Changing Lives One Jackpot at a Time

According to a statement released by the renowned developer, the winning player hit the progressive jackpot on January 30, thus becoming the 68th millionaire created thanks to Microgaming progressive jackpot network – the largest one in the gambling industry.

The last couple of weeks were extremely exciting when it comes to Mega Moolah, as the game’s jackpot went over €20 million for the first time since this video slot hit the market more than 12 years ago.

This amazing feat represents the third largest payout to have ever been paid out on the company’s progressive jackpot network. The largest one, worth €18,915,872.81, was awarded in September last year, followed by the €17,879,645.12 win that secured Microgaming a place in the Guinness Book of World Record back in 2015.

The €13.3 million jackpot will, as usual when it comes to Microgaming’s progressive wins, be paid out as a lump sum. Following this payout, the current Mega Moolah jackpot has now reached (and exceeded) €9 million.

A Remarkable Achievement

However, the latest prize represents an important milestone, with all progressive payouts on Microgaming networks finally breaking the €1 billion mark!

Commenting on this amazing achievement, Emma Hall from Zodiac Casino said that everyone at the casino was speechless after generating another huge win at Zodiac Casino and the first Mega Moolah jackpot in 2019!

She added they couldn’t be happier for the winner, who was a long-standing player with the casino! Hall stated it was amazing to crack the jackpot in less than 30 minutes of play and congratulated to the lucky winner.

David Reynolds Games Publisher at Microgaming congratulated to Zodiac Casino and the lucky winner on this truly life-changing win.

He pointed out that Mega Moolah had once again delivered an amazing payout following months of anticipation. Reynolds also said it had remarkable to see the jackpot ticker rise at such a phenomenal rate in recent weeks and added Microgaming was thrilled that this massive win had taken total payouts on the network beyond the €1 billion mark.
