Mega Moolah Pays Massive 8.3 Million, Possibly to a Canadian
Mega Moolah is a notorious millionaire maker, but awarding over 8 million as a prize is something very special
In Canada, one of the most famous games is Mega Moolah. The Microgaming progressive jackpot game seeds at 1 million. So, regardless of when it was last won, a jackpot winner will become a millionaire. Present at the best Microgaming casinos in Canada, Mega Moolah is always very popular.
Now, it gets to increase its fame by paying out a huge sum of cash. Uncharacteristically, it had been quite a long time since the jackpot had been triggered. But, on June 24, one lucky spinner landed the 8.3 million jackpot. The only question that remains is: did a player in Canada win the mega jackpot?
Another winner from Canada?
In May, Microgaming celebrated Mega Moolah’s ability to make many millionaires. In 2018 alone, the game had made millionaires in January, February, March and April. But, it wasn’t just the Mega Moolah games that were making millionaires. Major Millions 5 Reel also made millionaires at a top-rated online casino in Canada, Betsafe. At the time, the game had paid out over 874 million.
But, after such a hot start to 2018, the mega jackpot wasn’t triggered in May. As June came to a close, it looked like the Mega Moolah jackpot would continue to climb into July. Then, on June 24, 8,331,262.60 was claimed from the Jackpot Bonus Game. The game had paid out over 16 million in 2018 by May.
However, the win brought up more questions than answers. Due to the amount won and the reset value, a player from one of two nations could have won. The game pays out the value showing in the local currency. So, in places like the UK, the game will reset to a higher value when won elsewhere in the world. As it reset at around £4 million, someone in Canada or New Zealand could have won the jackpot.
If the winner were from Canada, it would be Canada’s sixth win. Mega Moolah has favoured players in Canada since November 2017. Between November 2017 and February 2018, three of four jackpots were claimed by players in Canada. However, some see a New Zealander as a more likely winner this time. This would be their third win on the game.
More slot action from Microgaming
Microgaming isn’t just known for its progressive jackpots. The developer is loved in Canada for its inventive slots. Most recently, Microgaming released Fortunium. The game is made by Stormcraft Studios and released to Microgaming casinos.
The game is a steampunk-themed slot that takes place on five reels and five rows. It is loaded with special features and bonuses that will prove to be very popular in Canada.
