The win comes on the week that the Mega Fortune Mega, Mega Fortune Dreams Mega, and Mega Moolah Mega prizes were all hit, and is 43rd win for the jackpot since we started following it in December 2009. The game's average prize payout is £855,592 every 11 weeks, and the largest on record is £2,148,947, which was won in 2013. This win is smaller than average due to a punter hitting the prize back just eight weeks ago for £1,413,750, which is the third largest win in the game's history.
The game is the online version of the land-based prize, which is offered at brick and mortar casinos around the world. The prize grows with each bet placed on the game, and it pays out completely randomly.
