The world’s largest ever online jackpot has just been won on a famous progressive jackpot online pokie from Microgaming called Mega Moolah. This latest big win occurred at Grand Mondial Casino on Friday 28th September and Microgaming announced to the world that a new record had been smashed just a few days later on Wednesday 3rd October.
The lucky winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, placed a mere €0.75 bet on the lucky winning spin which ended up triggering the progressive jackpot bonus round. From there, he or she took one spin of the jackpot wheel from within an exciting second screen jackpot bonus round that takes place away from the reels and then ended up winning the largest of the four jackpots – the Mega Jackpot, which had climbed to an incredible €18,915,872.81. When you convert this huge windfall in to New Zealand dollars at today’s rate of exchange, it works out to approximately NZ$33,838,426.51.
This latest big win has yet to be confirmed by Guinness World Records as the new title holder for the ‘Largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game, so we are expecting an announcement to be made soon. The last time this record was set was back in October 2015 when lucky UK Player Jonathon Heywood netted a record-breaking €17,879,645 ($20,062,600, £15,209,300). This recent win also means that to date, Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network has paid out a mouth-watering €948 million (approximately NZ$1.7 billion) in prize money.
This recent win actually occurred on mobile (on an Android mobile device) over at Grand Mondial online casino. Unfortunately this particular Microgaming powered casino does NOT accept real cash wagers from New Zealand players. However, if you’re based in New Zealand and fancy playing on this game right now, some of the best Kiwi online casinos that we can recommend heading over to where you can find the Mega Moolah pokie include Jackpot City Casino, Royal Vegas Casino and All Slots Casino.
The Mega Moolah ‘Mega Jackpot’ (the largest of the four jackpots that you can win on this game) instantly reset to its original seed amount of $/€/£1,000,000.00 as soon as it was won and it has already climbed back up to more than NZ$3,154,125 (and climbing by the second). Don’t forget that you can win this life-changing jackpot from as little as NZ$0.25 per spin.
“We’ve been on the edge of our seats in anticipation of the Mega Moolah jackpot being hit these past few weeks,” said the Games Publisher at Microgaming, David Reynolds. He then finished by saying, “Watching the jackpot grow has been exciting for us at Microgaming and we are immensely proud to see it set a new record. Congratulations to Grand Mondial Casino and their lucky player on this amazing win!” We managed to obtain these exact comments directly from the official Microgaming website.
