Only three weeks after generating a massive payout of CA$7,400,357.40, Mega Moolah continues the winning streak, rewarding an anonymous UK player with over CA$3 million ($3.033,563.60).
With the latest stroke of good luck, the collective amount released to the winners has reached CA$103,033,322.73, while the total value of jackpots won by Canadian players is estimated at CA$6,868,888.
Mega Moolah vs Mega Fortune
As jackpot hunters are focusing on King Cashalot – deemed to be the next in line to generate a big win – Microgaming seems to be gradually re-establishing its reputation as the “million-maker”. So far, the developer’s biggest competitor is NetEnt, but topping Mega Moolah’s double strike that occurred earlier this year will not be easy.
The odds were beaten on the 5th and the 6th of March when two players claimed a total of CA$20,600,778.21. The first winner was a bit more fortunate, hitting CA$17,302,377.88, while the runner up scored a “modest” CA$3,298,400.33.
The latest hit on Mega Fortune by NetEnt has been recorded in May this year when a Hyper Casino player won CA$3,779,546.09 (26,958,246 SEK). At the moment, this is the largest jackpot documented under the Swedish Gambling Authority license, although not the biggest one in the history of NetEnt.
Despite Mega Fortune’s increasing popularity, Mega Moolah remains on top, setting the record of CA$28,347,326.99 jackpot, paid in 2018. The amount exceeded the 2015 CA$26,794,436.18 hit, recorded in the Guinness World Records as the “largest jackpot payout in an online machine game”.
With regards to the highest win ever recorded, NetEnt does not fall far from Microgaming.

Top 5 Jackpots:
By comparison, Mega Moolah is still an undisputed record holder. The base amount is much higher, as is the average jackpot. What does make Mega Fortune more attractive to the players is the higher RTP rate – 96.4% as opposed to Mega Moolah’s 88.12%. The low volatility also gives advantage to Mega Fortune as Mega Moolah is a medium variance game.
Both games have multiple jackpots, but Microgaming still has an upper hand, introducing 4 instead of 3 progressive slot jackpot cash prizes.
