Mobile slots players seem to be having all the luck at the moment as just two months after one lucky player, known only as N.C won a 6 million euro prize playing Mega Moolah from their mobile, another player has scooped an even bigger jackpot of 6,681,487 euros playing at Zodiac Casino.
This is the second biggest mobile jackpot paid out on the slot, eclipsed only by the 7.9 million euro win by a player known only as D.P who won the biggest ever prize on a mobile device back in August 2016. That means that three times out of the last five occasions that the Mega Moolah jackpot has been triggered, it has been won by a customer playing from a mobile device.
This means that the famous Mega Moolah slot has now paid out over 647 million euros in prize money to players ever since it first hit casinos in the middle of the 2000s. The jackpot has now been triggered an incredible 31 times since then, with the highest ever payout still being the £13.2 million win by Jonathon Heywood of the UK back in October 2015. That win is still the world record for the largest online slot win paid out to an individual.
As with all winners of the Mega Moolah jackpot, the player will receive his prize in a single lump sum, money which will no doubt make a massive difference to how his life will now progress from here on wards.
The lucky player hit the jackpot playing on Tuesday 14th March 2017 and won a confirmed prize of 6,681,487 euros playing at Zodiac Casino and incredibly, he is the second player in a row who has won the prize while taking advantage of a superb introductory offer.
Emma Hall, the Promotions Manager at the Casino Rewards Group, of which Zodiac Casino is a member, explained:
"Casino Rewards are thrilled to welcome their eighth lucky member to the Millionaires Club! C.F became the latest success story when he hit the jackpot playing on his mobile phone.
"It was in Zodiac Casino where CF receive the Welcome Promotion of 80 chances to become a millionaire for only 1€ and he is now the second multi-million jackpot winner of this promotion since the start of the year."
In addition to these comments, the Games Publisher at Microgaming David Reynolds added his congratulations to the winner stating:
"Mega Moolah has consistently made the headlines since launching over ten years ago and it seems to set to continue that trend.
"Congratulations to Zodiac and their player on this life-changing win!"
The lucky winner, known only as C.F, has elected to remain anonymous and little is known about the player other than he won while playing through the 80 chances to win for 1€ introductory offer with the casino.
This is a fantastic offer which new players at a number of casinos in the Casino Rewards network can take advantage of when they sign up. All they need to do is deposit £1 or 1€ into their account and for that they will receive 80 spins worth £/€ 0.25 per spin on the Mega Moolah slot. Remember, on this slot, you can trigger the Bonus Wheel Jackpot game on any spin, of any value, so if you get lucky you can trigger the jackpot bonus even when playing through your welcome offer spins.
This has now happened twice in a row for two lucky players, both of whom were also playing from mobile. It certainly seems that this is the way to play to trigger the big Mega Moolah jackpot at the moment!
Due to the fact that the jackpot was triggered in Euros and not the base currency of the Mega Moolah game, Pounds Sterling, this means that the jackpot could not reset back to the default minimum of £1 million. The reason being that the 6,681,487 euros does not equate to 6,681,487 pounds.
What happens when this occurs is that Microgaming pay out the lucky winner in their local currency the amount shown on the jackpot. If this amount is less than the British Pound equivalent, then the Mega Moolah jackpot is reset to £1 million plus the additional money left over in the jackpot fund once the winner's prize money has been deducted from it.
That's great news for Mega Moolah players as it means that often when a jackpot is won, there is still considerably more than the minimum guaranteed prize of £1,000,000 available to be won in the days and weeks following the big win.
This is why currently the Mega Moolah jackpot prize is already at over 4.3 million euros and increasing all the time as thousands of players around the world try their luck to become the next big winner.
If you haven't signed up yet, why not join Zodiac Casino and take advantage of the 80 Spins for 1€ offer that remains available. You could be the next player that strikes it lucky and wins that massive jackpot! Get more info about this offer on this page.
