Record-breaking Mega Moolah Mobile WinTia Winter | 6 September 2016
A player at Zodiac casino won a whopping $8,894,630 in the Mega Moolah Progressive Jackpot pokies on Sunday the 28th of August 2016. This was the biggest payout from this incredibly popular Microgaming game since June of this year, when a single lucky player won $7,094,290.
While such a win would always be exciting in the online casino industry, what makes this one even more so, is that it happened on the mobile platform of the Zodiac Casino. To date, this is the biggest win in mobile jackpot history.
Mobile Win Sets the Standard
All of the games in Microgaming’s Progressive Jackpot network pay out their rewards in lump sums so DP, as the winner is known to the public, will receive their entire payout in a single life-changing moment. It is not known what the plans for the win are, though it is large enough to accommodate most dreams and goals. DP has chosen to remain anonymous, but it’s almost certain that further details of this massive win will be available at a later date.
While big wins on mobile sites remain something of a novelty, it is expected that they will become more and more common. As John Quinn, Microgaming’s Head of Casino, says, almost half of all gameplay now occurs on mobile platforms, and a corresponding portion of overall wins should follow suit.
Quinn also commented that Microgaming, the software with the market’s oldest and largest Progressive Jackpot network, is pleased to add the distinction of creating the game that awarded the biggest-ever mobile jackpot win to its impressive list of accolades.
He went on to congratulate DP on behalf of the entire Microgaming team. At the same time, from the side of the Zodiac Casino, Promotions Manager Emma Hall did the same, describing the mobile casino as absolutely ecstatic for the lucky winner.
Jackpot Win Triggered with Bonus Money
This payout marks the sixth instant millionaire win across all of Zodiac’s member casinos, and the way that DP won is almost as exciting as the payout total. After signing up with Zodiac, DP claimed the Sign-up Bonus. This offers 80 opportunities to become a millionaire, all from a single $1 bet.
With this, DP triggered the Mega Moolah jackpot, meaning the eye-watering win was a return on a $1 investment! All of this should inspire players to try for big wins of their own, and with the Mega Moolah Progressive Jackpot already back to over $5 million, there is everything to play for.
