Mega Moolah is a game that earns you real money

Casino Tech

The heated jackpot war between Microgaming’s Mega Moolah video slot and NetEnt’s Mega Fortune video slot just took another turn. It seems every time one of these exciting progressive jackpot games succumbs to another lucky player, a record of some kind takes a fall.

For novice online casino players, progressive jackpot games can surrender winnings of millions of dollars from very small wagers. These popular online slots are usually linked between dozens if not hundreds of online casino operators located all over the world. With each bet made on a progressive jackpot game, a small portion of the wager is siphoned off into a progressive jackpot that continues growing until one lucky player takes it down. Historically, some of the largest jackpots have needed months to build before someone claimed the prize.

In the latest news, a player, who chose to remain anonymous, turned January 30th, 2019 into one of the best days of their life. While playing Mega Moolah at Zodiac Casino, a player conquered the required bonus game and earned an incredible 20,057,734 game credits. This instantly became the new world record holder for game credits earned on a single spin of an online slot reel.

By the way, the dollar value of this win was only $13 million since the player was playing with Canadian dollars. Still, it ranks among the top 10 largest online jackpots in history. The current world record for actual money value also belongs to Microgaming and the amazing Mega Moolah. In September of last year, one lucky player hit Mega Moolah’s progressive jackpot for an astonishing €18,915,872.81, which converts to just over $21.5 USD. Over the past five years, Microgaming and NetEnt have been taking turns reclaiming the world record with its respective progressive jackpot games.

According to Microgaming CEO John Coleman in a press release, “What an astonishing milestone for Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network!” We are incredibly proud to see total payouts exceed the €1 billion mark – congratulations to all the lucky Mega-jackpot winners who have been part of this remarkable story. The network has been awarding life-changing wins since 1999, including thousands of five and six-figure sums, and we look forward to building on this remarkable success in the future with the development of even more innovative and rewarding game-play experiences for players.”

On behalf of Zodiac Casino, representative Emma Hall added: “We are speechless after generating another huge win at Zodiac Casino and the first Mega Moolah jackpot in 2019! What a thrilling ride it’s been, and we couldn’t be happier for the winner, who is a long-standing player with us! To crack the jackpot in less than 30 minutes of play is just amazing. Well-deserved and massive congratulations from Zodiac Casino!”

Here we are at the end of February 2019 and the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot is already sitting in excess of $10.0 million. These huge wins are the cornerstone of the online gambling industry because they make clear that online casino players can make their financial dreams come true if they are willing to join the current online gambling craze.
