Microgaming’s Mega Moolah jackpot has been hit for a massive €18,915,872.81 jackpot at Grand Mondial Casino, setting a new payout record for the popular progressive online slot. The winning player, who wishes to remain anonymous, hit the jackpot with a 75 cent bet on an Android mobile device.
As with all wins on Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network, the winner will receive the prize as a lump sum and not in annuities.
The life-changing €18,915,872.81 jackpot was won on Friday 28 September 2018. Grand Mondial Casino is just one of the many Casino Rewards group casinos to have won the Mega Moolah jackpot. Anticipation had been building in recent weeks since the software giant announced that its Mega Moolah jackpot surpassed the 12 million mark.
The latest win exceeds the €17,879,645.12 that set the current world record in 2015, which earned Microgaming a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the ‘Largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game’.
David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming, comments: “We’ve been on the edge of our seats in anticipation of the Mega Moolah jackpot being hit these past few weeks. Watching the jackpot grow has been exciting for us at Microgaming and we are immensely proud to see it set a new record. Congratulations to Grand Mondial Casino and their lucky player on this amazing win!”
Emma Hall, Promotions Manager at Casino Rewards, adds: “This is the moment we were hoping would come! And for the player to win the jackpot from a 75 cents bet in less than 50 spins is just incredible. For Grand Mondial Casino to land this gigantic jackpot, and be part of Casino Rewards group, which has had so many Mega Moolah winners in the past, we just couldn't be prouder and more pleased. Casino Rewards has seen five huge Mega Moolah winners in the past 12 months and now our sixth winner has absolutely smashed all records yet!”
To date, Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network, which is the largest in the industry, has paid out over €948 million. The latest win is yet to be confirmed as the new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title holder for the ‘Largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game’.
