One lucky player wins over €6.5 million on the Mega Moolah jackpot!
The classic Mega Moolah progressive jackpot slot has been won for an outstanding €6,597,136.10 (roughly over £5.6 million) by a lucky player this month. Mega Moolah started as an individual slot title in 2016 but soon grew into a progressive jackpot networked across multiple different slots.
Joining a prestigious group of winners
This is the fifth win of seven figures from Microgaming's progressive jackpot this year and the hundredth in its history. The lucky player won on the classic Mega Moolah slot on Optibet and won the massive prize on 4 June 2021. Incredibly, this win comes just weeks after one lucky player won a record-breaking amount of €19.4 million on Absolootely Mad: Mega Moolah.
Microgaming's progressive jackpot has paid out more than €1.4 billion to date since its launch 15 years ago, with just over 103 million awarded across jackpots and slots in 2021.
'A milestone for Microgaming' says CEO John Coleman
On hearing the news, Microgaming CEO John Coleman released a statement that said: “I’m delighted to see another big jackpot win so soon after Mega Moolah dropped for €19.4 million in April. My congratulations go to Optibet and their player on this brilliant win.”
He further went on to say that “This is something of a milestone for Microgaming, being the 100th euro millionaire made on our progressive jackpot network.”
The CPO of Optibet, Chris Davis, added: “We were thrilled to hear the news that one of our players had struck the Mega jackpot on the legendary Mega Moolah. Not only was it the first Mega jackpot to be hit at Optibet.com, but it’s also a tremendous multi-million-euro prize!”
