The Microgaming progressive jackpot slot Mega Moolah – hit recently for $5.5 million by Finnish player KlausE – has already climbed to $2.9 million and counting in a week that has seen a number of large wins by online players on a variety of softwares including that from rivals Cryptologic and Playtech.
Earlier in the week a Euro 289 500 hit was made on Playtech's "Queen of the Pyramids" at Europa Casino by player SisselA. Then there was the 30-year-old unnamed player from Denmark who won a remarkable Euro 323 578 in one day at Windows Casino….all without using progressives. The Cryptologic-powered Littlewoods Casino.com was the venue for the creation of the latest instant online gambling millionaire this week when player "Graystash" hit a $1.3 million progressive jackpot on the "Millionaire's Club." CryptoLogic also lays claim to the largest jackpot win in the history of online gaming – more than $8 million to a player from InterCasino.com last year.
The jungle themed Mega Moolah is a five reel, twenty five pay-line slot machine, with a four-tiered jackpot, free spins and a fortune telling monkey. It has four progressive jackpot levels: Mini Progressive, starting at $10; Minor Progressive, starting at $100; Major Progressive, starting at $10,000; and Mega Progressive, which starts at an incredible $1,000,000
