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!"

Microgaming’s Biggest Ever Mobile Win – €5,375,695.08 – From a Single Spin!

Posted by Gambling News | Casino News | Wednesday 15 April 2015 1:12 pm

Microgaming confirms its Mega Moolah progressive slot has been hit at a mountainous €5,375,695.08!

The life-changing jackpot was won on 9th April 2015 by Royal Vegas player, Mark A, spinning on his mobile phone. The player will take home a total of €5,375,695.08, receiving a single cash payout in full rather than an annuity, so Mark A has become an instant millionaire.

John Quinn, Head of Casino at Microgaming, comments: "We’ve been watching the progressive ticker grow substantially over the last few weeks; anticipation was building as to when it was going to strike! Once again the jackpot was hit via a mobile device; it really is a sign of today’s industry and how prevalent mobile is! Congratulations to Mark A on becoming one of the biggest jackpot winners in Microgaming’s history."

Spokesperson for Royal Vegas, adds: "Mark A had only been a player with us for 7 days; I don’t think you could ask for a better start to playing at Royal Vegas! One of our senior VIP executive hosts had the pleasure of phoning Mark to confirm the win and to congratulate him; to say he was elated is an understatement. Everyone here at Royal Vegas would like to congratulate Mark on this mammoth and historic win."

Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network is the largest in the industry; to date it has paid out over €487 million.

32Red Player Continues Lucky Streak With Fifth Online Casino Jackpot

Posted by Gambling News | Casino News,Gambling News | Thursday 17 September 2009 2:13 pm

A lucky 32Red online casino player has succeeded in racking up five progressive jackpot wins in just one year after another Cash Splash slot machine win in September 2009

32Red, the award-winning online casino operator, has announced another big jackpot winner and confirmed what must stand as one of the longest lucky streaks of all time, as one player hits the same jackpot five times in under one year.

The 32Red player’s fifth five figure jackpot win has already hit his bank account – something the player must be getting used to – with 32Red having paid-out over £100,000 to the lucky player since October 2008 when the streak began. Before the end of 2008 the player had already made it four wins from the Cash Splash progressive slot machine and now, with the jackpot win on the 12th September, five have been chalked up and with some time still to spare to make it six.

Pat Harrison, Operations Director for 32Red Online Casino, commented, "We’re amazed and thrilled for our player. We regularly have large jackpot winners at 32Red, but it’s unusual for one player to have five big wins within a year at the same online casino. It’s truly extraordinary. All of us at 32Red are keeping our fingers crossed that the player will go on and make it six and smash his own record for jackpot wins."

Cash Splash is just one of 16 progressive casino games at 32Red Online Casino and comes in the classic 3 reel and the more modern 5 reel format. The jackpot builds as the game is played, so it’s growing all the time. Having just been won, the jackpot has been reset to a healthy £15,000, and will be building nicely as 32Red’s lucky player spins the Cash Splash reels for yet another jackpot win.

This win comes as 32Red announce the arrival of a new addition to the popular Mega Moolah range of slots: Mega Moolah Isis. This game, like all Mega Moolah games, includes the world’s biggest progressive online jackpot – a guaranteed £1,000,000. However, in the past it has grown to as much as £6,200,000 before being won..
