The Mega Jackpot is a progressive jackpot that connects several online pokies from Microgaming such as the Mega Moolah pokie (the African Safari themed pokie) and also Mega Moolah Summertime, Mega Moolah Isis and Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive. This jackpot is actually the largest of four progressive jackpots that you can play to win on a daily basis on any of these games and the Mega Jackpot will never drop below its original seed amount of AU$1,000,000.00.
This jackpot often reaches well into the millions of dollars and over the years this game has created numerous overnight multi-millionaires, some of which have been created from as little as AU$0.25 per spin. Towards the end of April 2017 you may have noticed that the jackpot had gone from more than AU$8,000,000.00 back down to AU$1,000,000.00 and this is because one lucky player netted the entire lot from a €6.25 (approximately AU$9.00) spin.
The player wishes to remain anonymous and he or she ended up winning a total of €8,012,153.35 which is approximately AU$11,820,461.41. This means that it is the largest progressive jackpot ever paid out on a mobile device at it only just managed to beat the previous record of €7,968,311.26 (approximately AU$11,742,079.22) which was set back in August 2016. The only other info that we have about this player is that he or she was playing at an online casino called Tipico Casino.
“We are delighted that one of our players won this jackpot with a stake of EUR 6.25, which is the biggest win in our online casino history, and the biggest mobile jackpot payout ever,” said the casino’s Chief Commercial Officer, Marlon van der Goes. “The Mega Moolah games are very popular and this jackpot win is a great success story for the Tipico casino offer,” added van der Goes.
The Microgaming progressive jackpot network that currently connects hundreds of eCOGRA-certified, fully licensed Australian online casinos has now paid out an incredible €716 million (more than AU$1 billion) in jackpot winnings over the years and if you live in Australia some of the top-rated Microgaming casinos that we can highly recommend for you include Casino Mate, Royal Vegas Casino and Jackpot City Casino. Also speaking about this impressive win was the Games Publisher at Microgaming, David Reynolds.
He said, “It’s incredible to think in just over a month the mega jackpot climbed from 4.3 million (as at 21 March) to 8 million (as at 25 April). To see our own record for the largest ever mobile jackpot payout break is fantastic - we’d like to congratulate the Tipico player on their life-changing win.” All of the comments contained within this article came directly from Microgaming’s official website.
