Mega Moolah Pays out Big Twice in Seven Days
Date: May 23, 2013
In May 2013, a progressive jackpot slot machine from Microgaming paid out huge prizes to two lucky players within just a seven day period. Mega Moolah is a popular African Wildlife themed slot that can be found in more than 130 different Microgaming casinos. The first lucky player, known as G.L, won €3,036,433.21 and on May 10th, a player from New Zealand won NZ$1,062,355.
The Marketing Manager at Royal Vegas Casino spoke about this fantastic windfall, “We are thrilled that it’s a Royal Vegas player that has become the first ever mobile slot millionaire. We wish our winner all the best with his new found fortune.”
Also speaking about this first ever mobile millionaire was the CEO of Microgaming, Roger Raatgever, adding, “Creating the first ever mobile millionaire is a huge milestone for Microgaming, and furthermore the industry as a whole. As the mobile gaming sector continues with its remarkable growth, this will be the first of many players to win big through their mobile or tablet device.”
Player G.L won his prize while playing at Casino La Vida from a desktop computer. The German player spoke of his huge win, saying, “When I saw €3 million appear on my screen I just couldn’t believe it, I’m still in shock! This is such a life changing amount of money, and my first priority is to purchase a house with my winnings.”
Victoria Lamonte is the Promotions Manager at Casino La Vida and she was also quoted as saying, “GL’s winning story is remarkable. He signed up with Casino La Vida on 5th May around 8am and began playing Mega Moolah right away. Just one hour later he won the progressive jackpot; clearly luck is with La Vida’s players!”
Mega Moolah has 5 reels and 25 winning paylines. Both lucky players managed to hit the Mega Jackpot, which never drops below $/€/£1,000,000.00. It states in the paytable that the higher your average bet-per-spin is, the more likely you are to trigger this Mega Jackpot or any of the other three jackpots.
When you sign up to either of these fully licensed online casinos (Casino La Vida or Royal Vegas Mobile Casino), you will automatically qualify for a generous welcome bonus and once you have made your first deposit into your new account, you will be able to compete against millions of other players for numerous other progressive jackpot prizes.
