Who is this Mega Moolah winner?
Currently, we don’t know anything, not even the name of the online casino where they won the jackpot. The winner will most likely choose to remain anonymous. Indeed, it’s rare for winners who have become millionaires to reveal their identity. The only British players in the Mega Moolah series who shared their info are John Orchard (2012) and Jon Heywood (2015).
Don’t hesitate to check back on this article in the coming days to find out more regarding the 4th June jackpot. We’ll let you know which online casino the lucky player won 6.59 million at and which version of the Mega Moolah series.
Was the jackpot won at one of our guide’s featured casinos? If so, maybe it was the Casino Action site as it’s the highest rated casino on our Mega Moolah UK page.
They could have also won the pot on the 32Red site, a British brand of the Microgaming network.
Historic UK Mega Moolah wins
On 9th December 2012, J. Orchard had won £5,883,044. As for J. Heywood, his October 2015 win, coming in at £13,213,838 caused quite a stir. This 8-figure jackpot was the world record for the largest jackpot won on an online slot machine. In fact, the Guinness World Records even listed this feat.
It wasn’t until October 2018 that a player broke the record, but by a European player. This jackpot was €18,915,872 (£16.23m). Then on 27th April 2021, a Belgian player shot to the top of the leaderboard with a €19.43m win on the Absolootly Mad version of the game series.
Book of Atem WowPot
On 14th April 2021, an English player, and member of the 32Red.com casino, won £15,183,085 on the Book of Atem WowPot online slot machine. This game isn’t part of the Mega Moolah saga, but the Microgaming provider, who also supplied Mega Moolah games, did create it. Therefore, the biggest jackpot records for online slot machines belong to Microgaming games.
The Mega Moolah network keeps growing
Microgaming released the original version of the Mega Moolah slot in 2006. It wasn’t until 2009 that they started launching new versions of the game.
Today there are twelve versions of the game, but the most played version is still the original slot machine. It may be a bit vintage, but it’s still prevalent. However, it’s a safe bet that the more recent saga versions will gain the upper hand. Indeed, Absolootly Mad and Atlantean Treasures, two 2020 versions of the network, are being played more.
Big winners at Microgaming
With more than a hundred players becoming millionaires through the Microgaming network, the provider is a hit. Since the slot maker became active on the internet, over £1 billion in winnings has gone to Mega Moolah winners. You can only imagine the sums that they’ll pay out over the next few years. Each year, more and more players are choosing to play online at the expense of land-based casinos. The trends being what they are, the world of gambling now takes place on the web.
