Monday May 20,2013 : MEGA MOOLAH PRODUCES TWO MILLIONAIRES
“First ever mobile-playing millionaire”
Microgaming's Mega Moolah progressive jackpot slot proved lucky for two punters awarding Euro 3 million and NZD 1 million in two separate payouts within a week.
On May 3rd, an impressive Euro 3,036,433.21 jackpot was hit by a German Casino La Vida player on the Mega Moolah slot, who said: “When I saw Euro 3 million appear on my screen I just couldn’t believe it, I’m still in shock! This is such a life changing amount of money, and my first priority is to purchase a house with my winnings.”
Victoria Lamonte, Promotions Manager at Casino La Vida, said: “GL’s winning story is remarkable. He signed up with Casino La Vida on 5th May around 8am and began playing Mega Moolah right away. Just one hour later he won the progressive jackpot; clearly luck is with La Vida’s players!”
With a guaranteed prize pool of one million, Mega Moolah’s jackpot was automatically re-set and barely seven days later, a Royal Vegas player struck fortune playing on his mobile device winning a total of NZD 1,062,335.94.
“We are thrilled that it’s a Royal Vegas player that has become the first ever mobile slot millionaire. We wish our winner all the best with his new found fortune,” said a Royal Vegas spokesperson.
“Creating the first ever mobile millionaire is a huge milestone for Microgaming, and furthermore the industry as a whole. As the mobile gaming sector continues with its remarkable growth, this will be the first of many players to win big through their mobile or tablet device,” added Roger Raatgever, chief executive officer of Microgaming.
