Mega Moolah PokieOn the morning of Friday the 28th of September, Microgaming’s Mega Moolah Progressive Jackpot was already large enough to smash the game’s previous record payout. And on Friday afternoon at Grand Mondial Casino, one lucky player struck pokies gold and took home the record-breaking win.

The previous record for largest jackpot paid out by an online game is for €17879645.12. Jon Heywood claimed this honour in the same game in August of 2015, but now, this has been topped.

The New Multi-Millionaire

One lucky punter decided to spin the reels and won more than he bargained for. The player’s spin triggered the bonus round on the pokie, which resulted in him pocketing one of the biggest wins in online casino history. A whopping €18,915,721 will be paid out, and put him firmly in the record books.

The player's details have not yet been released, and whether they are will be decided over the next few days. Grand Mondial Casino will be discussing the player's preference regarding press and will put the winner in touch with a financial advisor to decide the best way forward.

A Game that Keeps Creating Winners

Mega Moolah has earned itself a reputation as the millionaire maker in online casino games. The latest win is just the most recent in several from this progressive pokie. The game has been paying large jackpots steadily since 2015, but 2017 and 2018 have seen enormous amounts paid to players.  

A 5-reel 3-row pokie with 25 paylines, to date, it has paid out an average of $5358744 every 9 weeks, making it the biggest paying title online. The jackpot is, in fact, 4 prize pools combined, and there’s a Mini, Minor, Major and Mega in play at all times. The pokie also has various options to choose from such as Mega Moolah Isis, Summertime and 5 Reel Drive. Each version has its own unique theme, but the jackpot stays the same no matter which version you play.

To win, players must trigger the bonus round, which features a wheel split into 4 segments. Like spinning a Wheel of Fortune, should the pointer land on the correct tab the player is an instant millionaire.

The lucky player who spun this wheel on the 28th of September probably had no idea just how much their life was about to change, but that’s exactly what this pokie is famous for. Making big winners, smashing records and changing lives!
