Swedish Lucky Casino Player Triggers Gigantic Mega Moolah Jackpot

Mega Moolah

A Swedish Lucky Casino player has made history after triggering the largest euro jackpot win on a Microgaming slot.

The lucky winner, who has chosen to remain anonymous, managed to trigger the gigantic €14,239,532.84 jackpot while playing Mega Moolah at Lucky Casino on August 17th, 2020 and helped make history along the way.

According to reports, some of the records the Lucky Casino win has broken include that the win is the fourth largest online jackpot win ever, that it is the highest ever online slot win for Lucky Casino, and that it is the single biggest euro jackpot win made in Sweden at an online casino.

Like with all Microgaming jackpot winnings, the gigantic win will be paid out as one lump sum rather than in staggered payments. However, this process isn’t common and is usually limited to online wins made on Microgaming jackpot titles.

Speaking about the win, the Lucky Casino customer said: “Somewhere deep down I probably believed in the dream all along, but when I won the jackpot, I thought it was a joke. It was only when Lucky Casino called me that I realised that my life will suddenly be different. It is impossible to put into words how happy I am – I think it will take a while before I understand how much money I have won.”

Martin Sidenvall, the Casino Director at Lucky Casino, added: “For everyone at Lucky Casino, this is a historic moment. To be able to call our lucky winner and announce that the fourth largest online jackpot-winning ever awarded, and the single biggest jackpot won in Sweden at an online casino, has gone to one of our customers in Sweden, is something we could only dream of.”

Andrew Booth, the Director of Games at Microgaming, said in a statement: “Congratulations to Lucky Casino and their players on the tremendous win through Microgaming’s Mega Moolah. The win marks the largest euro jackpot win in Sweden through our progressive jackpot network. Mega Moolah continues to be a favourite among players worldwide, and we are thrilled to add even more progressive games to the jackpot and network this year.”

Recent Microgaming Wins

The Lucky Casino win also marks the eighth millionaire made this year on a Microgaming jackpot network. So far this year, seven other wins have turned ordinary people into millionaires overnight, and, according to Microgaming, the total amount paid out by game developer so far in 2020 totals at more than €30 million.

In July, a UK-based Spin Casino player triggered a gigantic €1,650,382.89 win on a €3 wager on Microgaming’s Major Millions slot. The lucky user became the seventh millionaire made on the Microgaming jackpot network, equating to around one millionaire a month so far in 2020.

Other wins made on the Major Millions slot this year include a €1,650,910.31 jackpot in March and a €1,203,349.99 jackpot trigger back in June. Meanwhile, one Jackpot City casino play won €10,735,716.84 on Mega Moolah back in April and multiple users have made wins on the recently released slots Atlantean Treasures: Mega Moolah and Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah jackpot slots.

Speaking about all the wins triggered throughout 2020 so far, Microgaming CEO John Coleman said: “With total lifetime payouts exceeding €1.2 billion, Microgaming’s progressive jackpot networks has had an outstanding year to date, driven by a number of new game releases, including Wheel Of Wishes, Atlantean Treasures, and Absolootly Mad.

“We look forward to building on this momentum over the coming months, hosting more feature-rich games that feed into our leading jackpots, which have paid out over €115 million across 2,571,389 jackpots so far this year – that’s more than eight payouts every minute on average!”

Microgaming’s Mega Moolah Series

Microgaming is one of the most well-known game providers around, and the studio has been responsible for releasing some of the most popular video slots to date including Thunderstruck II, Immortal Romance, Jurassic World, and so many others.

In addition to those classic video slots, Microgaming is also responsible for the Mega Moolah jackpot series which consists of several unique games including Mega Moolah, Mega Moolah Summertime, Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive, Mega Moolah ISIS, Atlantean Treasures Mega Moolah, and Absolootly Mad Mega Moolah too.

The original Mega Moolah launched back in 2006 and quickly became famous for offering players a chance to win one of four progressive jackpots. The game has a safari theme and comes with all traditional slot features including Scatter symbols which trigger a Free Spins mode of up to 15 spins, Wild substitutions to help you create more wins, and so much more.

The success of Mega Moolah led to its countless spinoffs, each of which incorporated different themes like Mega Moolah ISIS which is based. All Mega Moolah games include the same gameplay mechanics as the original 2006 title but the later titles, which are developed by other studios for Microgaming, include more modern-day special features like Rolling Reels and more.

For example, Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah includes Wild substitutions on the second, third, and fourth reels, a Progressive Jackpot wheel where you can make plenty of big wins, Rollings Reels in which winning symbols are removed from the reels and replaced by new symbols, Multipliers which create more wins for you to enjoy, a Free Spins mode of up to eight spins, and plenty more.

Microgaming’s Mega Moolah success continues to grow as the developer is set to launch two brand new Mega Moolah slots in the coming weeks. This includes Stormcraft Studios’ Fortunium Gold: Mega Moolah and Just For The Win’s Juicy Joker, both of which will provide players with a great chance at making big wins.

Alongside this, Microgaming is also set to release games including All41 Studios’ Book Of Atem: WowPot, Triple Edge Studios’ Sister Of Oz: WowPot, and Slingshot Studios’ African Legends among so many others.

Unfortunately, not much has been revealed about the slots so it seems we’ll have to wait a little longer to hear about what they offer. With this in mind, we suggest you check back often to discover everything related to Microgaming and all upcoming video and jackpot slots.
