Lucky winner strikes it $7.6m richer with Mega Moolah
There is no question on anyone’s lips as to why the Mega Moolah online pokies game keeps attracting more players by the day. This game has been responsible for some of the biggest Internet casino jackpots in history, changing the lives of several players with winnings well into the millions of dollars.
Mega Moolah caused quite a stir recently as the progressive jackpot continued to soar above the $7 million dollar mark, with players from all over the world flocking to spin the reels in the hope that they would strike it lucky.
And for one incredibly lucky player, known simply as “Mark A” that dream became a reality. The enormous jackpot tipped a whopping EUR €5,528,219 (AUD $7.66 million) before Mark A claimed the ginormous prize in one fell swoop, making him an instant millionaire.
While Mega Moolah is no stranger to gargantuan wins, what makes this story so special is that Mark A was playing the game on the Royal Vegas instant play mobile casino, making it the biggest mobile casino jackpot win in recorded history.
What’s even more astounding is that Mark A had only signed up for a real money account at RVC seven days prior to taking out the jackpot, proving that when it comes to the pokies, it truly is anyone’s game.
Whether or not the player signed up simply with the hopes of taking out this particular prize we may not know, as understandably he has been laying low, probably trying to get his head around the fact he can now live a life of luxury and financial freedom.
The Head of Casino at Microgaming (the software company responsible for Mega Moolah) John Quinn, was thrilled with the win. In a press release he stated, “We’ve been watching the progressive ticker grow substantially over the last few weeks… 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.”
This epic victory trumps the previous mobile jackpot win which was taken by the player Gabriel L back in 2013. Gabriel scored a tasty GBP £3.7 million (AUD $7m) playing none other than Mega Moolah.
Despite these two life changing wins which both occurred on smartphones, there’s still a big gap between the mobile wins and the biggest Mega Moolah jackpot taken out on a PC, which stands at £5.88 million (AUD $11.24m) and was claimed by UK player John Orchard in 2012.
