Mega Moolah, the popular Microgaming slot, has created two millionaires in one week. The first winner of the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot raked in over â‚¬3 million. Within a single week, the progressive jackpot was struck again, making the jackpot winner, â€˜GLâ€™, the first person to become an instant millionaire from playing slots on a mobile.
In the first week of May, one lucky German player, playing at Casino La Vida, cracked Mega Moolahâ€™s progressive jackpot, which was at an astounding â‚¬3,063,433.21. Still struggling to grasp the implications of his enormous winnings, the winner of the jackpot, â€˜GLâ€™, says: â€œWhen I saw â‚¬3 million appear on my screen I just couldnâ€™t believe it, Iâ€™m still in shock!â€. He may be in shock, but it seems â€˜GLâ€™ has some sound, practical objectives for his winnings, as he added that although he has won â€œa life changing amount of moneyâ€, his â€œfirst priority is to purchase a houseâ€.
Promotions Manager at Casino La Vida, Victoria Lamonte, added her delight at having provided â€˜GLâ€™ with the platform to win this jackpot. She says: â€œGLâ€™s winning story is remarkable. He signed up with Casino La Vida on 5th May around 8am and began playing Mega Moolah right away. Just one hour later he won the progressive jackpot; clearly luck is with La Vidaâ€™s players!â€.
Mega Moolahâ€™s progressive jackpot is at all times a guaranteed one million. A mere week after GL struck his jackpot, a lucky Royal Vegas player bested the game again, winning an incredible $1,062,335.94 NZD, while playing Mega Moolah on his mobile.
Royal Vegasâ€™s Marketing Manager voiced his excitement that Royal Vegas hosted the first ever mobile millionaire: â€œWe are thrilled that itâ€™s a Royal Vegas player that has become the first ever mobile slot millionaire. We wish our winner all the best with his new found fortuneâ€.
CEO of Microgaming, Roger Raatgever, says: â€œCreating the first ever mobile millionaire is a huge milestone for Microgaming, and furthermore the industry as a whole. As the mobile gaming sector continues with its remarkable growth, this will be the first of many players to win big through their mobile or tablet deviceâ€.
The biggest jackpot ever won on Mega Moolah was â‚¬6.3 million and with two new millionaires made in a single week it certainly lives up to its reputation as â€œThe Millionaire Makerâ€.
