Mega Moolah Pays out yet Another Whopping Jackpot of €18.9 Million
- October 1, 2018 By Oliver Young -
One of the Microgaming’s most popular slots, Mega Moolah has made another fortunate player a millionaire. In fact, the game is known in the online gaming industry as the “Millionaire Maker”, as it has been rewarding staggering jackpots since 2008.
The Millionaire Maker has done it again; it has brought a life-changing win to another lucky online casino player. There are unconfirmed rumors about the identity of the winner and the online casino at which he or she was playing the game, but since there are no official announcements neither on the supposed casino site nor the Microgaming’s official website, we cannot say for sure.
Microgaming has always been taking the time to congratulate the winner and the online casino, so, until further notice, nothing can be confirmed. One thing is certain: somewhere out there, there is someone made a millionaire overnight.
The Huge Win
Although the identity of the player is still disclosed, the breaking news appeared not long after it was announced that the jackpot has surpassed a €18 million mark.
In August 2018 Microgaming has made an official press release that Mega Moolah jackpot has hit the 12 million mark and is still rising.
With each day passing, one month later, the jackpot started getting closer to a €19 million. And just before it hit the €19 million, one very blessed player hit it on Friday, September 28, 2018, and took a breath-taking €18,910,668 million.
Considering the fact that Mega Moolah has paid out huge jackpots almost every year, sometimes even twice a year, the news came as no surprise. In fact, it has paid out a $1.2 million jackpot to a player just earlier this year, at the beginning of January. However, the number of this particular win staggering; you don’t see people winning almost €19 million every day.
Is This A New Record?
As soon as the word spread out, debates were hindered as to whether this slot machine has set a new record. Having in mind the close to $22 million that was won by a British player in 2015, the answer is no. There were larger wins throughout the history of online gambling, but that doesn’t deny the fact that this payout is pretty large, respectively.
Mega Moolah is a 5-reel video slot that offers 25 adjustable winning ways. It was launched 12 years ago and has paid out its first jackpot just two years after the release. From then on, it has made people millionaires on regular basis.
The thing is, the game features 4 jackpots, and hitting any of those jackpots will bring you at least a million. The more you bet, naturally, the larger the payout will be.
It first entered the Guinness Book of World Records with the British player’s win in 2015, and then again two years later in 2017, when it awarded the largest mobile jackpot of $9 million.
