€19 million to be won on Mega Moolah
Last week we had reported on the progressive jackpot belonging to Netent’s Arabian Nights, which paid a player €2.2 million. In comparison to this next win, it now seems rather tiny because Mega Moolah by Microgaming has just paid out a record prize!
A new world record
Earlier this month, we reported that the progressive jackpot Mega Moolah Slots had exceeded €14 million. Since then, the jackpot continued to grow, until it has finally been won by a player. This jackpot enriched the player to the tune of €18,910,668.01 and also broke the world record in the process.
Won using a smartphone
Unfortunately, we do not know much about the player, but we do know that he was playing on his smartphone. But what he managed to do is break the record set by the Mega Moolah Jackpot. In October 2015, Briton Jon Heywood won £12,213,838, which was approximately the equivalent of €17,879,645.
In the top 10 worldwide
The €18,910,668.01 win is now in the top 10 highest slot game winnings in online casinos and land based casinos. These include casinos in Las Vegas, Macau and the rest of the world.
