Microgaming announces a record-breaking jackpot win on its millionaire-maker slot, Mega Moolah.

Known for its massive pay-outs, and life-changing wins, Microgaming’s Mega Moolah has created another instant millionaire, but this time it’s larger than ever before.

On October 7th 2015, just after midnight, UK Betway player Jonathon Heywood hit the mega jackpot, winning £13,213,838.68. Using the exchange rate on the day of the win, this is the equivalent of €17,879,645.12*, making it the largest ever online slot win. As with all Microgaming’s progressive jackpot wins, the astonishing amount will be paid out to the player in a lump sum.

Jonathon, a 26-year-old soldier from Cheshire, couldn’t believe his luck when the life-changing figure splashed up on his screen. But he still managed to make it in to work just hours later!

The lucky winner, Jonathon Heywood, commented: "It’s all so surreal, and I can’t come to terms with it just yet, I just kept staring at my screen and seeing this huge number in my Betway account".

Betway’s spokesman, Alan Alger, added: "We are delighted for Jonathon and having met him the day after his win we can honestly say that it couldn’t happen to a nicer young man. We hope he really enjoys the World Record win".

Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, commented: "We have the longest-standing progressive jackpot network, having launched the first internet progressive jackpot in 1998, as well as the biggest, having paid out over half a billion euros to date. Our progressive jackpot network has set many records since its inception, but I’m absolutely overjoyed to say that our software has generated the world’s largest ever online jackpot win. Many congratulations to Jonathon on this life-changing and historic win!"

Mega Moolah progressive jackpot hits 2.4 million at Vegas Palms Online Casino

Posted by Gambling News | Casino News | Monday 29 November 2010 10:35 am

Mega Moolah, one of the progressive jackpot games offered at Vegas Palms Online Casino has reached a jackpot of over 2.4 million.

The Mega Moolah progressive casino games have almost hit the 2.5 million mark. This popular franchise of slot games features four variants namely, Mega Moolah, Mega Moolah 5-reel Drive, Mega Moolah Isis and Mega Moolah Summertime. Vegas Palms Online Casino is just one of the Fortune Lounge Group of Online Casinos on the Microgamming network that is giving players the opportunity to win this large amount of cash.

Another progressive slot game also offering a huge cash reward is King Cashalot, which has a jackpot of over 1 million attached to it.

The reason these games are increasingly popular among players could certainly have to do with the progressive nature of the jackpot. The premise surrounding these games is simple; the more players that deposit, the more the jackpot increases. This jackpot will continue to grow until a player has successfully claimed victory.

Vegas Palms is also currently running a Mega Moolah promotion, which could prompt players to play the game by offering double rewards points until 12 December. There is also a lucky draw which players could be entered into at the end of December by correctly guessing the Mega Moolah game being played each week in the promotion; there is 2,000 credits to be won in the draw.

Mega Moolah is definitely proving to be an exciting game to play at this stage at Vegas Palms, with increased rewards opportunities for players to delight in.
