About Mega Moolah Progressive Jackpot Slot

Mega Moolah is one of Microgaming’s most played and most popular progressive jackpot slot games. It was launched 13 years ago, and from then on, has been a game-changing title for many fortunate players. In fact, it has paid out its first jackpot two years after the release, and has never stopped surprising loyal players.

It is a 5-reel slot that gives you the chance to bet on 25 adjustable paylines. As a matter of fact, the game offers a pretty simple gameplay, but its secret is in the four jackpots it offers. Hitting any of those can make you wealthier than you were, but of course, the life-changing magical thing would be hitting the progressive one.

So far, Mega Moolah has entered the Guinness Book of Records twice, once for the earlier mentioned 2015 jackpot prize of €17,879,645.12 and once for paying out the largest mobile jackpot in 2017, the $9 million prize.

No Signs of Slowing Down

Three weeks have passed since the start of the new 2019 year and the progressive jackpot network is not even close to showing signs of slowing down. 2 days after New Year's Eve, a 32Red Casino player has hit an astounding €1,162,021.24 jackpot prize. The player tried his luck on 2nd of January on Microgaming’s popular progressive slot Major Millions.

To date, Microgaming’s network has paid out mind-blowing €980 million, and just in 2018, has given 9 players a life-changing sum and made them multi-millionaires. The nearly €1 billion in prizes, the unique milestone, made the network the largest in the iGaming industry, and only stressed the success and popularity of Microgaming’s progressive games.
