Microgaming's progressive online slot Mega Moolah has struck again providing a Euro 8 million pay day on Tuesday 25 April 2017, when a Tipico online casino player using a mobile device hit the massive jackpot.
The win comes just over a month after a Euro 6.6 million jackpot was collected in March.
The current pay-out of Euro 8,012,153.35 is the largest mobile jackpot win in online gambling history, superseding Microgaming’s pay-out in August 2016 of Euro 7,968,311.26, the company claims.
As with all wins on Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network, the winner will receive the prize as a lump sum and not in annuities.
Marlon van der Goes, Tipico chief commercial officer, said in a press release Friday:
“We are delighted that one of our players won this jackpot with a stake of Euro 6.25. The Mega Moolah games are very popular and this jackpot win is a great success story for the Tipico casino offer.”
Regrettably there was no other information on the lucky player or his/her plans in the press release.
David Reynolds, games publisher at Microgaming, said:
“It’s incredible to think in just over a month the mega jackpot climbed from 4.3 million (as at 21 March) to 8 million (as at 25 April). To see our own record for the largest ever mobile jackpot payout break is fantastic – we’d like to congratulate the Tipico player on their life-changing win.”
To date, Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network has paid out over Euro 716 million.
