Mega Moolah Jackpot

98 replies • Last post
Click to show this thread's original post ▼

Hey guys,

Have you notice that Mega Moolah Jackpot of Microgaming is 8.3 million Euro again?
It is roughly around $10 million... Wow...

This Jackpot gave a few small and middle Jackpots 🙂 like 3~4 million a few time,
then the Jackpots seem to skyrocketed since the last one 🙂

Let's see how high it goes up again right after the epic one.

Hmm looking at the graph it appeared the rate of gain on the jackpot has slowed dramatically in the last week. I've checked our feed and it is working so I wonder if there is a problem with wrong data in the feed, or a whole bunch of people have stopped playing it recently? I know a lot of casinos have recently stopped accepting players from Sweden but I don't think that would explain this. It looks very weird.

Could it be a drop because of the post festive period Ed?...I guess during the holidays there's been a huge number of punters chasing it and maybe it's quite normal early January to be really quiet period...or maybe not?!?

Yeah I guess that is possible but it looks like the trend was more or less the same for months before it stopped about a week ago. It has started going up at the old rate again over the past 24 hours though.

So, people were having break from Christmas to New Year.

As far as I'm reading the graphic correctly the drop back or the deadlock anyway is between about Jan 3-4 to about Jan8 so that's probably the most quiet period anyway but I guess as Ed mentioned above it's really look to be a weird fact...probably it could be a combination of reasons and we probably could only guess about it.

I'd assume there's always a large surge in online betting around the holidays, as people have time off of work and have to spend time with their family. God knows I've spun the reels a few times on my phone while I'm suffering at my in-laws. I bet that at least fuels some of that growth and explains the slowdown.

Ha-ha...yeah that probably explains everything Dustin 😉

Am I the only one who like the company of my in-laws more than that of my own relatives?

Sounds weird?

Well, I'm not technically(officially) married...so I guess that's part of the reason why... 😉

Nice WaroftheGods,decent wins, congrats mate 👍 you've had given up chasing this Jackpot?

I still chase jackpots, but this past week and a half or so while not playing Mega Moolah, ( I was very tempted at times) I ended up cashing out 2 more times than the ones listed above, all in all, I've deposited $140 and cashed out $840.

I think it's more to do with me being a lot more disciplined with my play these days than staying away from Mega Moolah, but I still think I'll play Mega Moolah a lot less after reading everything in this thread

Hahaha, I got it 🙂 I don't know why this line comes to me so funny 😀

By the way, the Mega Moolah Jackpot went over 17 million, wow. It was just a little over 16 million 2 or 3 days ago.

That's quite good balance man, 👍

Yeah I think that way as well...not over-chasing the Jackpots cause the chance of hitting these is minimal anyway..but I guess it won hurt you trying your luck from time to time and as a consequence from that limiting your losses.. in the end you never know.

My experience, everything slows down in January, my dad owned a car dealership, and my mom a womens clothing store, they both have always said January was by far the slowest month for business.
I'm a mover, and I haven't worked more than just the 1 day this month so far. I would put money on the fact that if people aren't buying, they aren't gambling as much either.

That's my take on things lol, but I too have noticed the very noticeably slow rise all of a sudden on Mega Moolah, this past week or so.

Yeah..I agree with your observations of someone else's businesses man 😜

From my working experience it's exactly the same in January(especially the early days of it) and that's why I assumed that..it has to have some influence over the gambling market as well...maybe not in same proportions like in business..but still...

Hey guys, Mega Moolah went over 18 million during the weekend. Now it is getting closer to the world record again. Maybe, it would make another 🙂

By the way, the last winner who was a British got the Jackpot with only 0.75 cent, wow 🙂

Are there some Jackpot chaser here in Casinolistings, too ? 🙂

Fingers crossed.

I'm one of those for sure, haha, I was able to cashout another $325 last night on a deposit of $20, my cashout numbers are much higher than the amount I've deposited since I stopped playing Mega Moolah a few weeks ago. Things are changing for me, being a jackpot chaser could very well be in my past now

Obviously your hot-streak still running man, congrats...just one piece of advise if I may...don't become too complacent mate...it's happened to me a few times and it usually didn't ends up too well.

But not meaning to screw up your current mood man..enjoy the moment 👍

There definetely was some sort of problem with mega Moolah on januayry. I have played this game daily since december and there was time when jacpot was not growing as it should. It can not be explained telling there was no players that time or so. I was even thinking that it should be reported to the police cause who took the money and where did it go? Is it possible there was some sort of Scam or problem with the slot?
It works fine now but havent triggered bonus wheel even once (500 rounds)and minor jacpot does not grow or noone wins it It Seems..

Thanks for sharing your observation and experience.

It seems that there are very few players from Christmas to New Year season, so other members also pointed out that the Jackpot was not growing for the period.

And yeah, the bonus game is getting extremely hard these days.

Yep.
I even contacted microgaming customer service concidering problem with mega moolah, but there was said that I should contact casino where did I played. Should I? Should you? "Unfortunately, all queries must be directed to the casino operator you were playing with. They will be able to assist." That was what they said. Should we let this be or should we do more? I am wondering what happened during those few days.. Who is puplic authority to check these things?
I mean, there was 99% sure some sort of problem with major jacpot. .
Not anymore, singe jackpot is growing I guess..

I don't think it would be due to less people playing for a week. The jackpot pretty much flat lined for the week, it didn't just slow down and increase slowly. Maybe for 1 day over Christmas sure, but a whole week? I don't think so. All I can think of is that maybe Microgaming took the game offline for a week to update or fix a bug or something. But that cannot be right for two reasons:

1. Here we have finfi5h telling us that the game was online during that time (thanks finfi5h), and
2. If you look at the Mega Moolah Major jackpot (the second tier jackpot on the same games) during the same period, it did not flatline or look unusual at all, which indicates that people were playing the game.

It does not make sense to me.

So what I did was look closely at the graph from our Mega Moolah jackpot tracker, and if you draw a rough line of best fit you can see that whatever happened, the money has been added back in some days later. It almost looks as if the contributions were coming in on a delay or something. It has since resumed the previous rate of accumulation. So while there was definitely an issue for a week, I think it is clear that no money has gone missing.

Yeah I think that's a useful info you gave there Ed, I guess the players would be quite more relaxed knowing the funds have been added after all and there's not any leak let's call it that way or abuse of the system ...but it seems likely that there's been some technical difficulties for Microgaming which they're not tend to reveal..anyway I guess that's not so important now.

Oh, I got it.
There was some kind of problem in the system and they seem to have fixed it in early January.
I think that many players would have thought it a strange situation then.

Hey guys,

Here is an interesting article about the Mega Moolah Jackpots last year.

https://www.casinolistings.com/news/2019/01/punters-won-150-million-prog...

And CL-Ed calculated the estimate of how much money Microgaming earned from Mega Moolah last year. It is interesting to read 🙂

During last weekend, Mega Moolah Jackpot went well over 19,000,000. Amazing!

It might reach 21,000,000 this weekend.

I think that it is new world record, right?

Hah, no I was wondering how can it be that Main jacpot was not growing that time CL tracker went straight and did not grow. Since others observed same thing I do think it would be fair to know What happened then and since I am only normal customers I do not have abilytyes to figure it out. Other that that it works fine now and have been so for some time now.
I did Share my observation, no intention to do otherwise.
Just speculating that what was that time when jacpot was not growing like now or.
All good now.

Yeah, this is likely to break the record that has been break before and it will become more historic because it happened in a very short period of time, I played at least twice this week with the casino action, the first session was pretty good until I saw the funds grew to 5x from the deposit although in the end I did not make a cashout, but in the second session I played I did not get my funds growing until I suffered another defeat, but indeed my goal was to hunt jackpots so I played until there was a wheel jackpot appearing or funds ran out, and of course my funds gone ... LOL
