Mega Moolah Pays Out Another Multi-Million Jackpot in 2017
- June 27, 2017 By Riley Wilson -
When Microgaming launched Mega Moolah back in 2006, no one could have expected the game would be so popular more than a decade later, but most importantly, no one could have guessed this slot would change so many lives for the better.
Nicknamed ‘the Millionaire Maker’, this Microgaming release paid out its first multi-million jackpot in 2008, and since them awarding staggering jackpots has become the game’s trademark feature.
Game That Changes Lives
Last Monday, Mega Moolah has done it yet again by paying out a whooping $1,599,224 jackpot to an unnamed lucky player.
This is the 36th win on this five-reel video slot with 25 paylines, and the second one in last two weeks. The game has four progressive jackpots, awarded randomly, so no one can know for sure whether his or hers name will end up on the list of Mega Moolah winners.
Since 2008, the game paid out more than $800 million, with average win being around $5.3 million. So far, the name Mega Moolah has been written in the Guinness Book of World Records twice – in 2015, when a lucky Briton won the biggest online jackpot ever, worth nearly $22 million at Betway Casino, and couple of months ago, when it awarded the biggest mobile jackpot in history, a massive $9 million at Tipico and the Chief online casino.
A Generous Year
When it comes to 2017, we had a winner every month except in February. The year kicked-off with a $6.7 million jackpot in January, with $7.4 million won in March. The record-breaking mobile jackpot was paid in April, with $4.1 million in May. That’s almost $30 million in the first six months of this year, while you can be certain there is more to come.
Between 2015 and 2016, only five jackpots were paid out, while their value was substantially bigger due to the fact that one of those jackpots was the biggest ever won online. The game was even more stingy back in 2014, paying out only three jackpots – two of them in June.
