"I could not believe my eyes, I could not believe my luck, I am over the moon!" said G.M. when the casino staff telephoned him to congratulate on the epic mobile Mega Moolah win.
John Orchard from Lincolnshire (UK) won £5.88 million on 9 December 2012 while playing The Dark Knight slot machine, which at the time was linked to the Mega Moolah jackpot network.
John, an avid bingo player, decided to spin the Mega Moolah reel with a 30p stake and was awarded the randomly triggered jackpot! Just goes to prove how "lady luck" can grace you with her presence at the most unexpected of times.
A "small" jackpot on NOK 5.4 million (Norwegian Krone) was won late November 2012. This jackpot equaled to more or less US$1 million.
A man from Midlands UK, won £2.6 million on 17 July 2012 while playing Mega Moolah.
Susan C. won £1.9 million on 28 December 2011 while playing the Lord of Rings progressive slot, which was at the time part of the Mega Moolah jackpot network.
Only known only as A.D. won a life-changing 3.8€ million on 14 October 2011 with a 0.50c wager at Challenge Casino.
On 7 December 2010 Mr. R. won 2.5€ million.

Polish player Radoslaw M. claimed US$1.2 million on 5 October 2009.
Radoslaw said "I was afraid to touch my computer, I was so shocked!" He said. "I'm so happy, I don't know what to say!"
Radoslaw immediately planned to get married and have a honeymoon, and live a life he and his fiance had only dreamed about. It's just great when a jackpot goes to someone like Radoslaw!
And who can forget 11 May 2009 when Mega Moolah created an instant multimillionaire when Georgios from Greece won over 6.3€ million. Georgios spun with five euros to produce this monumental win. Georgios was over the moon and after the win could only say "I still cannot believe it!"
The Mega Moolah's main jackpot, the Mega Jackpot, can be won during a randomly triggered bonus round where the player spins a big wheel of chance. The lucky ones who land the wheel on the right slot can win the jackpot, which is paid out in one lump sum.
Prior to Georgios' win it was Klaus from Finland who on 22 April 2008 turned a 0.50c coin into US$5.5 million at Blackjack Ballroom.
That's 11 million times the original bet amount! Klaus said "when I saw 5,556,753 flash on my screen I though it was a US phone number. It couldn't be a jackpot, I must be mistaken! So I just got up from my table, went outside to clear my head, and then came back in again for another look and noticed five and half million dollars sitting in my casino account!" Klaus soon realised it was no mistake as he went to pick up the ringing phone - it was the casino, and the rest is online history.
When the jackpot is hit it resets to a minimum of one million Pound Sterling, which is the default currency and least amount that can be won on Mega Moolah's Mega Jackpot. On average the jackpot grows by one hundred thousand up to two hundred thousand per month, or more depending on the number of players playing the game at the time.
Note that when the jackpot is triggered in another currency than the default currency Pound Sterling, the game can not reset to exactly one million GBP. For example, Mark, the Canadian winner played the casino in Canadian dollars and won CA$7.5 million. Due to the exchange rate the game reset to around £3.5 million, not £1 million.
