One lucky player playing on a mobile device hit a huge payday earlier this month with a progressive jackpot win on the Mega Moolah slots.
On Tuesday March 14, a player only identified as “CF” who was playing online at the Zodiac casino, which is part of Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network, registered a payday of €6,681,487, according to a press release by Microgaming which was sent out to announce the big win.
According to the company, the player will receive the life changing money in one lump sum payment.
Emma Hall, Promotions Manager at Casino Rewards, commented: “Casino Rewards are thrilled to welcome their eighth lucky member to the Millionaires Club! ‘CF’ became the latest success story when he hit the jackpot playing on his mobile phone. It was in Zodiac casino where ‘CF’ received the welcome promotion of 80 chances to become a millionaire for only €1, and he is now the second multi-million jackpot winner of this promotion since the start of the year!”
The latest jackpot puts the total won on the Microgaming progressive jackpot network at more than €647 million. Jackpots won on Mega Moolah have gained great notoriety in the online gaming world. In fact, the GUINNESS WORLD RECORD for the “Largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game” was won on Mega Moolah in October 2015.
The game also boasts the largest mobile jackpot ever won. The record-breaking win was recorded in August of last year and totaled a whopping €7,968,311.26. Players wanting to try their luck can find online casino games including online roulette UK at various online casinos across the web.
David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming, added, “Mega Moolah has consistently made the headlines since launching over ten years ago, and it seems set to continue that trend. Congratulations to Zodiac and their player on this life-changing win!”
Also, earlier this year, Microgaming won a prestigious award during the 10th International Gaming Awards held in London.
The company was recognized in front of the online gaming industry for its excellence in the category of Mobile Product.
Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, said about the award: “We are very proud to win the award for Mobile Product. We predicted that mobile would be the future of gaming back in 2004 when we created the world’s first mobile casino software, and we haven’t looked back.”
Raatgever went on to add: “The platform is thriving and it is very much the future of our industry, with even more growth to come. It is great to receive recognition for our hard work and to be viewed by the industry as having the best mobile product out there. This is the perfect way to start what is sure to be the most incredible ICE Totally Gaming for Microgaming!”
Microgaming was the first online gaming operator to develop mobile casino software back in 2004.
