Mega Moolah Pays Out Another Staggering Jackpot
- January 9, 2018 By Riley Wilson -
Mega Moolah has done it again! One of the most famous and definitely one the most popular video slots in the world has once again changed the life of one lucky punter by paying out a hefty progressive jackpot.
This fortunate Grand Mondial Casino player received his Christmas present a bit earlier, after hitting a neat $1.2 million progressive jackpot on the very same day he joined the casino. The lucky winner has decided to collect the winnings as a lump sum.
The Millionaire Maker
Mega Moolah is a five-reel video slot with 25 adjustable paylines, launched back in 2006 and has since become one of Microgaming most popular titles and the favorite slot of many punters around the world. The first multi-million jackpot was paid out in 2008, and from that point on, the game has been awarding hefty prizes almost regularly.
The video slot nicknamed ‘the Million Maker’ even made it to the Guinness Book of World Records, with two entries. The first one was in October 2015, when a British player managed to grab the biggest online jackpot of all times, worth nearly $22 million. The second one was in summer of 2017 when Mega Moolah awarded the biggest mobile jackpot ever – worth around $9 million.
Mega Moolah features an African theme, which includes animals such as lions, antelopes, monkeys, zebras, elephants, buffalos and giraffes. The graphics are colorful, but offers no top-notch animations, with jungle sounds playing in the background.
Waiting For the Next Winner
When it comes to the game’s symbols, apart from a usual array of playing cards, you’ll also encounter the Lion Wilds and Scatters that trigger the Free Spins round whenever three of a kind land on the reels.
This medium variance title was a revolutionary release when it hit the market more than 11 years ago since it was the first Microgaming title to offer four progressive jackpots. A randomly activated bonus offers the chance to win one of the jackpots, and the higher the bet is, the bigger is the chance to do so.
David Reynolds, Microgaming Games Published congratulated the lucky winner and Grand Mondial Casino on this remarkable accomplishment, which further demonstrated the appeal of this popular video slot.
