Almost a year back, one lucky online casino player turned a 25 cent stake into a win of over $5 million, an achievement made possible by lots of luck, wagers and the use of big-win progressive jackpot online slots like Microgaming's Mega Moolah and Cashalot.
 
The news this week is that a new record could be in sight as Mega Moolah has broken through the five million level, setting the scene for that unique confluence of luck, wagers and spins that could deliver another massive jackpot win to some still unsuspecting Internet gambler.
 
The aptly named 5 reel slot games Mega Moolah and King Cashalot prize pools have been growing rapidly over the past eight months with the liklihood that the King Cashalot record payout of GBP1 218 306 and $5 000 000 on Mega Moolah could be due again at online venues like Ladbrokes Casino.com.
 
A Ladbrokescasino.com spokesperson said this week: "It's only a matter of time before someone hits the jackpot. Both of the payouts are huge and will be a welcome windfall to tackle 2009. Both titles offer enthralling gaming experiences and are two of the most varied and exciting offerings within the Ladbrokes Casino suite of games."
