Microgaming’s popular Mega Moolah slots game created a new multi-millionaire when a lucky player at YakoCasino hit the mega progressive jackpot earlier this month.
The game’s mega progressive jackpot slipped over the $11 million mark between November 4 and 5 and was promptly hit by Marcus Goodwin on November 5, 2016, for an impressive $11,633,898.44.
When contacted by YakoCasino after his win, Mr Goodwin expressed disbelief that he had won the life-changing amount of money.
“Wow! Thank you so much,” he said. “This is obviously life-changing! I can’t believe it! I will definitely be buying a nice big house and a vacation cottage. And taking my entire family on a first-class trip to Africa. This will mean great Christmas presents for everyone!”
Mega Moolah is one of Microgaming’s most popular video slots games, largely due to its mega progressive jackpot. The largest online slots win is a record held by Mega Moolah when John Heywood won GBP13.2 million playing the game in October 2015.
Previous to this win, a lucky player took home $11,609,942 at Zodiac Casino in September 2016. The game’s jackpot is hit fairly regularly, but this time it was twice in quick succession with Goodwin’s win on Saturday, 5th November and another winner hitting the jackpot for $5,633,226 on Tuesday, 15th November.
“Everyone at YakoCasino is ecstatic for the player and we wish Marcus all the very best with this record breaking win!” announced Steven, co-founder and chief executive of YakoCasino. “Marcus’ win on Mega Moolah shows that YakoCasino has the jackpots and games to deliver amazing life-changing wins for our players. He is our first YakoMillionaire and we know he won’t be the last jackpot winner at YakoCasino.”
