This story was published more than 2 years ago.

A lucky gambler this week struck Microgaming's Mega Moolah Mega Jackpot, taking home the game's big prize worth $12,792,526.

The win comes less than a week after Microgaming sold off its online gaming business to Games Global Limited, and comes 13 weeks after a different punter hit the game for $10.3 million.

We've been tracking this massive chonker of a jackpot since 2009, picking up 79 wins. On average the jackpot pays out $5,980,040, with the largest prize of all time being €19,429,358, which was won last year at Napoleon Casino by a Belgian player. It should be noted that our currency value may be different than the one that the winner hit, as the Mega Moolah Jackpot pays out in the gambler's native currency.

The Mega Moolah Mega Jackpot is tied to a series of video slots, with the pool prize growing every time a punter lays a spin on the game. The jackpot can be won with any bet amount, and is set off completely randomly.

These are exciting times for the lucky player, and we're awaiting details on the win so that we can share them with CL readers. Be on the lookout, as we'll update when the details are released.
