Mega Moolah Mobile Jackpot Win Sets New World Record.
We know we’re beginning to sound like a bit of a broken record here at mobilecasinoman.com, but Microgaming’s progressive jackpot slot Mega Moolah was back in the headlines again last week after awarding a prize just short of €8 million.
Seemingly not content with already holding the existing Guinness World Record for the largest ever online casino slot payout, Mega Moolah took the crown for the largest ever mobile casino payout as well last Sunday as one lucky player got their hands on a jaw-dropping €7,968,311 prize in one spin.
The player – who for obvious reasons chose only to be named as D.P. – was playing the Mega Moolah slot for €1 on his mobile device when all of a sudden he reached the jackpot bonus round. From here, the game is capable of paying out Mini, Minor, Major and Mega jackpots in ascending order of value, but amazingly D.P. cut straight to the top and got their hands on a seven-figure win.
To give the momentous result its proper context, we have to go back to October 2015, when Mega Moolah did something no one thought possible and broke the previous record for a virtual slot win. With a UK-based soldier triggering a Mega Jackpot payout of €17,879,645.12, Microgaming wrote their names into online casino history by taking the crown formerly held by NetEnt’s Mega Fortune.
Unfortunately for the team at NetEnt, it was a case of history repeating itself last week as it was again Mega Fortune that had previously awarded the largest ever mobile slot machine payout at €5 million. With that record having now been completely trounced to the tune of some €3 million, Mega Moolah has done the double over its jackpot adversary and set a new bar for mobile slot wins.
“We are extremely proud to have the longest-standing and biggest progressive jackpot network in the market, which also holds a Guinness World Records title,” said John Quinn, Head of Casino at Microgaming. “To now claim the largest ever mobile jackpot win is very pleasing. On behalf of everyone at Microgaming, congratulations to D.P. on this mammoth mobile win.”
With mobile gaming now accounting for almost half of online casino gameplay, it should come as no great surprise that the wins are continuing to grow; and all the signs suggest it will only be a matter of time before the biggest mobile jackpot and the biggest online jackpot are one and the same.
The good news for players seeking to follow in D.P.’s footsteps via their mobile or tablet device is that the Mega Moolah jackpot fun as already reached €5 million again and may have risen further by the time you read this, so why not track the slot down at LeoVegas and see if you can make history?
