The casino game on everybody’s lips is Microgaming’s Mega Moolah. This millionaire-making progressive jackpot slot has made headlines once again with the news that it has a new world-record win of €19.4 million – scooped up by a Belgian player at Napoleon Sports and Casino.
Gaming software provider, Microgaming, released Mega Moolah to the casino market in November 2006 and it has been the most popular progressive jackpot slot to play ever since, dishing out life-changing payouts to casino players far and wide. Microgaming’s progressive jackpot games collectively, have paid out over €1.3 billion in jackpot wins to date, with Mega Moolah paying out over €57.2 million in jackpot wins in 2020 alone. No other online slot game at this time, competes with the lump-sum payouts of that of Mega Moolah.
The previous world-record win landed on Mega Moolah, as recorded in the Guinness World Records under the ‘largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game’ was €17.9 million in October 2015 received by 26-year-old English soldier, Jonathon Heywood, while playing at Betway Casino.
Owing to the immense popularity of this Microgaming slot, the company went on to release several other exciting Mega Moolah variants across its progressive jackpot network. These variants are Mega Moolah Summertime, Mega Moolah 5-Reel Drive, Atlantean Treasures Mega Moolah, Mega Moolah Absolootly Mad, Fortunium Gold Mega Moolah, Juicy Joker Mega Moolah, and Mega Moolah Goddess.
The Belgian Mega Moolah world-record winner, who requests to remain anonymous, hit the jackpot from a €15 stake on Mega Moolah Absolootly Mad slot, which was created by Triple Edge Studios exclusively for Microgaming and released in May of last year. The player comments on his win by saying, “The feeling at that moment is just indescribable. At first you can hardly believe it and I think it will take a long time to sink in completely. It was on my last spin that it happened.”
This incredible record-win also puts both Microgaming and Napoleon Sports and Casino in great standing, with CEO at Microgaming, John Coleman stating, “We’re absolootly delighted to see Mega Moolah make history once again with its latest record-breaking win, and what an incredible win it is – €19.4 million! That’s the largest jackpot payout in an online slot of all time. Congrats to the player, and well done to Napoleon Sports & Casino on their second mega jackpot win on our network in as many weeks.”
