Mega Moolah Surpasses £12 Million and Keeps Growing

This week Microgaming's popular progressive jackpot Mega Moolah surpassed £12 million in value, and the next win could be the largest in the game's history.

The Mega Moolah jackpot is the largest online jackpot offered by Microgaming, and one of the largest in the world in terms of regular payout amounts. The jackpot currently holds the Guinness World Record for largest online progressive jackpot win of all time when Jon Heywood won £13,212,838 while playing at Betway.

Needless to say, Microgaming is perking up and promoting the game, as they know the next win will be a major PR winfall for the group. The win is awarded randomly and can be picked up across a few different games.

Commenting on the jackpot's size Microgaming CEO John Coleman said, "Mega Moolah is a Microgaming classic. It's a millionaire maker, a record-breaker and has been awarding life-changing wins since its release in 2006. We are proud to host the largest and most exciting progressive jackpot network in the industry, and this is a particularly exciting time for our operators and their players. The jackpot is growing daily and it is only a matter of time before the mega jackpot is hit."

Yeah, there's really a good chances of the current Jackpot being the largest ever won at an online slot and I hope it will be, certainly there's no better publicity right now for Microgaming than this.

It's over 13.9 million now. So it will set a world record if someone wins it in British pounds.

The Microgaming jackpots are paid out in the same number in the local currency, not currency converted (i.e. $13.9m vs €13.9m vs £13.9m), so it is worth more if you are playing it in Pounds or Euros instead of Dollars for example. This may sound unfair but in fact it is totally fair because people playing in lesser valued currencies wager less for each spin (eg $1 vs €1 vs £1) and therefore contribute less to the jackpot.

Yeah a needed explanation Ed, thanks for that, and yeah it seems a totally logical way of the winnings being paid in the currency anyone uses.
Just hope it would be hit by someone using pounds(for the record being broken), otherwise we''ll have to wait a bit if it's in $ and maybe the Jackpot wouldn't sustain that long.

By the way, that's a real time tracker? I wasn't aware.

Ho, now it is the biggest Jackpot in pounds.
Wow, I hope that it would be triggered in a reliable casino, not the rogue ones.

I wonder how Microgaming process this kind of huge Jackpots.
They probably are handling it safely for players, as I believe, not like Playtech casinos Smile

I have to add that this is quite exciting and from one side I just want to start playing Mega Moolah, from the other.. I'd feel like a dummy hunting something nearly impossible to get!

Yes, if someone wins it in dollars or euros or rubles or whatever else, it will only drop by the amount converted back to pounds. So it will only be a record if someone wins the full amount in pounds, or if it rises so much that if someone wins in pounds or dollars it is still more than the previous record.

It is a close to real time tracker - we record the values every 15 minutes or so and detect when the value drops so we know when there is a win.

Ha-ha lol it would be some waiting breaking the record in rubles..probably another couple of years wont be enough Wink

So if my mat is right...

£13,212,838 ~=EU14,661,134.86 ~=$17,042,222.35

I'm using a calculator of course Tongue

So it's pretty much a real time tracker for me..we dont need to count every penny..unless it's about a possible record Wink Useful tool I think.
