Since the game’s introduction in April of 2008, Microgming’s progressive video slot game Mega Moolah has been like a gold mine that just keeps giving and giving. It was as recently as October of 2015 that Jon Heywood, a slot player from the UK, used the Mega Moolah jackpot to set the Guinness World Record for the “largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine.” While playing on the Microgaming-powered casino site, Heywood spun Mega Moolah’s jackpot wheel and landed on the solitary white slot that earned him a monstrous progressive jackpot of €17,879,645.12.
Based on an announcement just made by Microgaming officials, it only took six months for this amazing slot game to render yet another incredible jackpot. While playing on the Spin Palace online casino site on April 8, 2016, an unnamed player landed on the same solitary white slot and earned themselves an incredible €6,905,670.81 payout. Based on Microgaming’s terms and conditions, the winner, once identified and verified, will receive a lump sum payment for the entire amount.
With the addition of this most recent payout at Spin Palace Casino, the Microgaming jackpot network has paid out an astonishing €574 million to date since the network’s inception. Much of the credit for this record setting number goes to the high profile Mega Moolah progressive slot game.
Mega Moolah Progressive Slot Features
Mega Moolah is a 5-reel slot with 25 pay-lines. With the game’s decidedly safari theme, the game’s standard symbols are represented by an elephant, water buffalo, giraffe, zebra and gazelle, plus playing card numbers 10 through the Ace. A wild lion serves as the game’s wild symbol, which substitutes for all other symbols with the exception of the scatter symbol. The wild also provides a 2X multiplier when used as a substitute for another symbol.
The scatter symbol is represented by a traditional native mask. If the player lands three or more scatters, they are awarded 15 free spins with a 3X multiplier applied towards all winnings during the round. The chance to spin for one of four progressive jackpots is randomly triggered during the base game. The highest paying jackpot resets to a minimum of $1,000,000 after a big win such as the jackpots mentioned above.
In the company’s press release, Microgaming CEO said, “It’s not long since we were celebrating our historic and record-breaking win. To be able to crown another millionaire so soon after is brilliant – congratulations to the lucky Spin Palace player.”
For players who want a chance to have the Mega Moolah experience, the game is available on most online casino sites that use the Microgaming software platform.
