Microgaming’s Mega Moolah Makes Another Millionaire

Microgaming Create Yet Another Multi-Millionaire

If there is one casino software provider that seems to excel at making multi-millionaires, then that is unquestionably Microgaming. While NetEnt has made many a millionaire itself, and other progressive jackpot slots have been known to pay out prizes in the seven-figure range, few have done so with such consistency as Microgaming’s Mega Moolah slot. This week, the world’s most famous (and record-holding) jackpot slot was it again.

Mega Moolah Does It Again

This week, one lucky player managed to pocket an immense cash prize playing the African wildlife-themed slot. Mega Moolah paid out a sum of $5,617,776 to one lucky player. While that figure is not to be sniffed at, it does fall far short of the all-time top jackpot prize paid out on this game and its sister slots.

A Long Way Off the Record Prize

Since launching in 2009, Mega Moolah has cemented its place as the top paying progressive jackpot slot on the net. This most recent win is the 77th reported overall to top one million dollars. Despite the magnitude of the most recent win, the $5.6m haul is still scarcely a quarter of the current record for a progressive jackpot win. That prize stands at €19.4m, with the prize won last year at a relatively unknown casino site.

How to Win the Mega Moolah Jackpot

You don’t necessarily have to play the original Mega Moolah jackpot slot to score a progressive prize. There are now over a dozen Mega Moolah slots out there, including but not limited to Mega Moolah Goddess (formally known as Isis), Fortunium Gold, Absolootly Mad, Atlantean Treasures, and Witch’s Moon. Even Microgaming’s flagship vampire-themed slot, Immortal Romance, is now a part of the progressive jackpot network.

While the exact method of triggering the bonuses can vary (most are triggered at random), the way the progressive prizes are won is typically the same. You’ll get to spin a fortune wheel, divided into four segments, with each coloured segment paying out one of the game’s four progressive jackpot prizes. Naturally, the most valuable of these is the Mega Jackpot, which has a minimum value of $1 million. It is this prize that tends to make the news, and the most recent win is a fine example of that.

What Happens Now?

Once a player lands the Mega Jackpot prize (on any Mega Moolah slot), the value drops back to its base value of $1 million in all Mega Moolah games. That will currently be the situation. However, fresh bets on any of those games will rapidly see the prize rise once more. The average win sits at around the €5.8m mark, meaning that the most recent victory is just shy of that. It typically pays out every eight weeks, so nipping over to any cryptocurrency casino supporting Mega Moolah and its sister slots might not be a bad idea in the run-up to Christmas.
