Several progressive jackpot tracking websites reported over the weekend that a stunningly fortunate online punter has cracked the Microgaming Mega Moolah jackpot for Euro 18,910,668.01 at the Grand Mondial online casino.
Microgaming has not confirmed the big hit yet, and an official announcement has yet to be made by the online casino.
Once confirmed, the news is likely to trigger a mini-debate on whether this is a new online gambling pay-out record; certainly from an online casino perspective it would be, eclipsing as it does the GBP 13.2 million won by the UK’s Jon Heywood back in October 2015 – also on a Microgaming progressive.
But as an overall online gambling pay-out, it lags far behind Lottoland’s Guinness Book of Records confirmed claim earlier this week that it has paid out around Euro 90 million to a German player on one of its secondary online lottery bets.
There was another instant multi-millionaire on Friday, too – a Euro 3.4 million hit by an as yet unidentified player on NetEnt‘s Mega Fortune progressive.
