The winner of the record-breaking progressive jackpot reported over the weekend has been announced as Georgios M. from Greece in a statement from one of the longest established Internet casinos around, Riverbelle.com.
Georgios's Euro 6.3 million on the Mega Moolah game sets a new record in Internet progressive jackpots, eclipsing last year's $5.5 million won by a Finnish player, also at a Microgaming-powered online casino.
Details on the player and his reactions to the windfall as still awaited.
Not so fortunate is a player on the Rival powered casino Irish Luck, who hit a $ 215 412 jackpot on another progressive – One Million Reels BC – on May 10, but was apparently playing on a free chip, which in terms of the T&C's disqualified him (or her) from the jackpot.
According to message board reports, the winner is currently trying to negotiate some sort of comp points deal for his once-in-a-lifetime win.
