Recently, Mega Moolah, the popular 5-reel online slots game, has created a new millionaire. D.P., as the anonymous player is referred to, is now exactly €7,968,311.26 richer than before. The lucky winner will receive their jackpot winning in cash in a single payment.
The prize was won on a mobile casino called Zodiac Casino. Its progressive jackpots can usually only be claimed when placing huge bets. However, the site had a special €1 offer that allowed players to take a shot at winning the big prize for virtually nothing.
Since its release, the gaming machine has already paid out more than AUD800 million. This April alone saw another lucky online slots player, a Spin Palace customer, win a life-changing €6.9 million.
If all of that has caught your attention and you find yourself wanting to try out the game for yourself, it's important to note that Mega Moolah progressive jackpots are also available to players residing outside of Australia. Mobile and online casinos are all linked to the same infrastructure, so all players have a chance to win big.
In fact, Mega Moolah features as many as four different jackpots: Mini, Minor, Major, and Mega. Of course, the amount that you're going to win typically depends on the size of your bet. For example, Mega, the biggest jackpot, seeds at $1 million after a triggering event activates it.
Usually, when a jackpot this big is claimed, Australians are rushing to various online casinos trying to achieve the same. However, because of the land-based casino lobbies, most Australians are actually prohibited from playing the game online, since land-based casino operators don't exactly welcome their online casino competitors with open arms.
In any case, if the payout trend continues, we are likely to see some new jackpot-winning players emerging in the future.
