Optibet player wins Mega Moolah jackpot
Microgaming’s Mega Moolah is famous across iGaming circles for its massive payouts. The game is back in the limelight yet again for producing a second millionaire in as many months. A lucky punter won a €7,231,507.69 jackpot at Enlabs-owned Optibet playing Mega Moolah. This news comes right at the heels of a second punter winning €6.5 million back in June.
The anonymous player joined the ranks of Mega Moolah millionaires and is the 101st jackpot winner on the company’s progressive jackpot network. Microgaming has a long history of producing millionaires with Mega Moolah and the legacy continues.
The popular video slot has already given away €1.45 billion in winnings over the years and has paid out €137 million in cash prizes, bonuses, and several jackpot tiers since the beginning of 2021.
The Event Marks a Remarkable Feat for Microgaming and Optibet
Commenting on the back-to-back wins, Microgaming CEO John Coleman said that the company is thrilled at the news. €7.2 million is a massive amount and he is certain Mega Moolah will continue creating more millionaires before the end of the year. Coleman congratulated the lucky player and hailed Optibet for creating two millionaires in two months.
Microgaming and Optibet have been partners for a very long time and both companies have shared a successful venture over the years. Commenting on the situation, Chris Davis, the CPO at Enlabs, Optibet’s parent firm, said that the team is thrilled at the news.
“We were delighted when Mega Moolah dropped the jackpot back in June. For it to happen again within a few weeks is nothing short of extraordinary and we could not have been happier”.
Davis further pointed out that players have constantly been striking the jackpot at Optibet for a while. And the latest news should get the players pumped. Mega Moolah has been extremely popular among regular punters since the game regularly hands out massive rewards.
However, the €7.2 million jackpot isn’t a record by any means. Back in May, a Belgian national won €19,430,723.60 on a progressive slot game. The lucky punter was playing Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah at the time. Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah is a Mega Moolah-powered progressive video slot that has 243 paylines. The game launched back in May 2020.
Microgaming and Optibet are counting on the latest win to convince more players to try the game. Despite being launched over a decade earlier, the game remains relevant thanks to Microgaming updating the title several times over the years.
How Does Mega Moolah Produce Millionaires Frequently?
Mega Moolah is a classic video slot with a 5-reel 3-row grid with a bonus round and several wild multipliers. The jackpot bonus wheel is the game’s highlight and amplifies the stake to gigantic proportions. The bonus round is randomly triggered and allows players to access one of the four progressive jackpots.
The high-volatile video slot has a base RTP of 88.12%, while the betting range is between $0.25 and $6.25. Though that might seem counter-productive, the bonus round multiplies the bets exponentially. The best part, players don’t need to do anything to trigger the bonus round, as the feature is automatically activated.
Although the bonus round is triggered at random, there are several things to keep in mind to increase your chances of winning. Players must look out for the winning symbols and keep their fingers crossed. The Lion icon is extremely important as it can increase the stake by 2x. However, the bonus wheel is the game’s highlight.
Despite the theoretical 88.12% base RTP, the figure jumps to 96% and higher during the bonus round. This is the best time to hit the jackpot and most millionaires were lucky at this stage. While Microgaming’s Mega Moolah isn’t the only video slot with progressive jackpots and multiple millionaires, it’s the crowd favourite across casino floors.
