$11,633,898 Mega Moolah Mega Jackpot Won

Over the weekend a punter playing the Microgaming video slot Mega Moolah took home the game's Mega Jackpot for a huge $11,633,898 cash prize. The lucky punter, Marcus Goodwin, was playing at YakoCasino, a relatively new online casino running on the EveryMatrix platform.

The win is the 29th hit for the Mega Jackpot since we began tracking it since December 2009. We figure the jackpot was hit in a currency other than British Pounds, as the jackpot only drops by a certain amount when players win the jackpot in a different currency. By that standard, it is likely that the jackpot was hit in either Canadian, Australian, or New Zealand dollars.

The Mega Moolah Jackpot is available to be won on a handful of Microgaming slots, and is awarded randomly. The jackpot currently holds the Guinness World Record for largest progressive jackpot when Jon Heywood won £13,212,882 at Betway last year.

Casino Listings will update this story as more developments arise.

UPDATE: We can confirm that the jackpot was hit by a player named Marcus Goodwin at YakoCasino, who 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!"

If you have ever wondered what a $11 million winner looks like, wonder no more... and yes apparently his surname really is Goodwin! lol

Born lucky is right! He looks fairly young, too, so what a nice win for him!

Yes, that will be one spoiled pup! Lol

The only thing I would do differently is probably choose another vacation destination - one with a tropical setting and lots of white-sand beaches. Smile

Congrats to you, Marcus! Smile Oh, and this lowly (and low-paid teacher) is taking donations at this time. Haha! Wink Smile
