The most sought-after prize in iGaming, Microgaming’s Mega Moolah progressive jackpot has continued its generous history of gifting players with life-changing jackpots.
The progressive network’s first big winner for 2022 has walked away with a massive €7,296,286.88 prize on 6 February while laying the classic Mega Moolah online slot. This player has also claimed the distinction of being the 70th instant millionaire created by the jackpot network.
Microgaming’s African-themed Mega Moolah made a huge impact when it was first released in November 2006 and has stood the test of time with its industry-changing four-tiered progressive jackpot with a maximum starting pool of €1,000,000.
The slot has gained a huge following thanks to its ability to dish out gargantuan prizes. It has awarded over 18.4 million jackpots across all its tiers, totalling near €919 million in payouts and still counting.
Mega Moolah created a worldwide buzz in September 2018when it paid out an €18.9 million jackpot. It didn’t take too long for an even bigger prize to be awarded to an exceedingly lucky player claiming a €19.4 million jackpot while playing Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah in April 2021.
Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah is one of seven titles in the Mega Moolah series that adds a variety of themes and features to the jackpot vehicle. Microgaming is reportedly planning even more additions to this slot family.
Andrew Clucas, the CEO at Microgaming weighted in on the momentous occasion, stating,
“Fantastic to see the first Mega Moolah win of the year, particularly as it’s another sizeable seven-figure sum – huge congratulations to the winner! An amazing 15 years after taking its first bet, the mighty Mega Moolah slot continues to be extremely popular and pay out massive wins such as this Mega €7.3 million* reward. Long may that continue.”
