This jackpot win came just a few weeks after the Mega Moolah progressive prize was triggered for $9.2 million at Zodiac mobile casino in March, proving once again that the games nickname of the ‘millionaire maker’ was well deserved.
An update was released shortly after the date of the latest big win, giving more details on the punter in question and his plans for his millions in winnings. The Mega Jackpot was triggered in Tipico by a player who was enjoying the mobile version of the pokie from their smartphone.
Largest-Ever Mega Moolah Mobile Payout
The lucky winner has chosen to keep his identity anonymous, although it has been revealed that he will receive the entirety of his winnings in a single lump sum – as per Microgaming’s progressive payout guidelines.
Microgaming’s Games Publisher David Reynolds was among the first to congratulate the player on his sensational pokies win. Reynolds noted that the growth of the Mega Moolah progressive prize from $4.3 million at the end of March to $8 million on April 25 is nothing short of incredible.
He also mentioned that this is the largest ever mobile win that has been produced by Mega Moolah so far, making the latest winner a record breaker as well.
Winner Hit $8 Million Jackpot In A Single $9.90 Spin
Marlon van der Goes, Tipico’s CCO, added that his company is delighted that one of its own players triggered the immense jackpot with a single spin of just NZ$9.90. He said that the win is the largest in the history of the Tipico online casino, and also the largest ever mobile payout for the pokie.
The Mega Moolah pokies range, he said, is exceedingly popular, and the jackpot is a notable success for the Tipico casino brand.
Mega Moolah is one of Microgaming’s cornerstone progressive pokies with an African safari theme. The game is optimised for both desktop and mobile play, and offers one of the largest progressive prizes of any online pokies on the web.
The jackpot is awarded at random in the base game, and the progressive network stretches across several pokies, including Mega Moolah and 5 Reel Drive.
