A statistical breakdown of past Mega Moolah jackpot winners

Mega Moolah statistics from 2007 to 2018

With the current Mega Moolah jackpot hitting new highs, there is a growing feeling that the next winner of the top prize on the massively popular Mega Moolah progressive could set a new world record win.

The jackpot has already broken the new record in British Pounds. To reach the Guinness World Record, which was recorded in Euros, the jackpot needs to grow to around £16 million.

But what are the chances of the next winner of the jackpot prize hailing from the UK? Which countries have seen the most jackpot winners over the years? What are the biggest (and smallest) jackpot amounts won? Which year has seen the most Mega Moolah jackpot winners, and which year since the games release in 2006, has seen the fewest?

See the all of Mega Moolah Winners since the game was first released and see more stats on the Mega Moolah Jackpot page.

So, what we are going to do now is take a trawl through the statistics of the Mega Moolah jackpot winners. For clarity, we are referring to winners of the largest of the four Mega Moolah jackpot prizes, the Mega jackpot (as opposed to the Mini, Minor or Major jackpots that are also available to be won when you play the slot).

So let's now take a look at the latest 10 confirmed winners of the Mega Moolah jackpot which are outlined in the following table below:

A statistical analysis of the winning jackpots

The above table only displays the latest 10 wins. But let's begin a breakdown of the entire stats of all of the jackpot winners by looking at which version of Mega Moolah people have played when winning the jackpot and it is clear that one game tends to be played a lot more than the other versions available:

Game type winners

  • Original Mega Moolah - 44 winners (91.7%)
  • Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive - 2 winners (4.2%)
  • Mega Moolah Dark Knight - 1 winner (2.1%)

It is clear that the original African Savannah theme Mega Moolah slot is the game which has produced the most winners, likely because it is by far the most popular version of the game. There have also been a couple of wins in the other themes over the years.

Mobile v Browser v Download

You can play Mega Moolah in three different ways. You can play from software downloaded onto your computer from a client casino (download), you can play without any download in your browser (instant) or you can also now play from a variety of handheld mobile devices (mobile).

Which has been the most successful method for players winning the Mega Moolah jackpot prize? Let's take a look and find out:

  • Download - 12 Winners (25%)
  • Instant - 10 Winners (20.8%)
  • Mobile - 26 Winners (54.2%)

This clearly shows that mobile winners have enjoyed more success on the Mega Moolah slot, but it is perhaps more indicative of showing that players gaming habits have changed over the years since Mega Moolah was released. In the early years of the slot most wins were from download or instant play but since the first mobile winner in May 2012, there has been a trend for the majority of winners to play via mobile.

Indeed, all of the last ten winners of the top jackpot prize have won the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot from a mobile device. Note that there is no official Mega Moolah app. The game is based on HTML5 technology and the game plays in the mobile browser. It cannot be played inside an app. Read more about this in our article: Is your Android Mega Moolah app legit?

Which currency has paid out most often?

While it is hard to locate the exact countries of some winners (the Euro for example covers many countries in the Eurozone) we can determine which currency the Mega Moolah jackpot has been paid out in most often.

  • AUD - 4 Winners (8.3%)
  • CAD - 12 Winners (25%)
  • EUR - 13 Winners (27.1%)
  • GBP - 5 Winners (10.4%)
  • NZD - 4 Winners (8.3%)
  • ZAR - 2 Winners (4.1%)
  • USD - 7 Winners (14.6%)

We can also see how much each currency has paid out when triggering the Mega Moolah slot, as well as the average pay out in each currency.

  • AUD - Total Wins - AU$13,432,452 - Average Win - AU$3,358,113
  • CAD - Total Wins - CA$71.503,749 - Average Win - CA$5,958,646
  • EUR - Total Wins - €46,415,706 - Average Win - €3,570,439
  • GBP -Total Wins - £26,067,737- Average Win - £5,213,547
  • NZD - Total Wins - NZ$21,139,036 - Average Win - NZ$5,284,759
  • ZAR - Total Wins - ZAR8,421,485 - Average Win - ZAR4,210,742
  • USD - Total Wins - US$19,077,413 - Average Win - US$2,725,345

Although inaccurate due to the fluctuation of currencies against each other on the markets over time, we can gain some insight into the relative value of wins in each country if we translate the average winning amount for each country into a single currency, which will be British Pounds, the base currency for the Mega Moolah slot.

Average Win Rankings per currency (converted into British Pounds)

  1. British Pound - £5,213,547
  2. Canadian Dollar - £3,543,182
  3. Euro - £3,209,021
  4. New Zealand Dollar - £2,703,859
  5. US Dollar - £2,093,133
  6. Australian Dollar - £1,882,995
  7. South African Rand - £221,576

It should be noted that these figures are based on the exchange rate as of Thursday 30th August 2018 and is after Britain voted to Brexit the EU, which has seen the value of the pound drop against many of these currencies. As such, this means that prior to the vote, the actual value of the British Pound average Mega Moolah jackpot wins would have been even higher than the wins in other currencies. 

When have the most Mega Moolah jackpot wins occurred?

Yearly Wins

There have been the following number of wins each year of the Mega Moolah Jackpot.

  • 2007 - 1
  • 2008 - 1
  • 2009 - 3
  • 2010 - 1
  • 2011 - 2
  • 2012 - 4
  • 2013 - 4
  • 2014 - 6
  • 2015 - 2
  • 2016 - 4
  • 2017 - 13
  • 2018 - 6 (so far)

As can clearly be seen, 2017 is by far the leading year in terms of the number of jackpots won, with 13 confirmed wins in the calendar year, more than double the next best years (which are 2014 and 2018, although there may yet be more wins triggered in 2018).

There were no wins in 2006, when the game was first released, with only one win in 20072008 and 2010.

Monthly Wins

Which months have proven the most popular for Mega Moolah jackpot wins? Let's take a closer look and find out how the 48 winners have been spread out throughout the calendar year.

  • Jan - 3 wins
  • Feb - 2 wins
  • Mar - 3 wins
  • Apr - 6 wins
  • May - 6 wins
  • Jun - 8 wins
  • Jul - 2 wins
  • Aug - 2 wins
  • Sep - 2 wins
  • Oct - 4 wins
  • Nov - 6 wins
  • Dec - 3 wins

It seems to be clear that the spring period from April through to June is the most popular time for Mega Moolah jackpot wins each year, which is followed by the end of year period from October through to December as being the most popular time for jackpot wins.

July, August, February and September are the least popular months to win the jackpot with just two wins apiece since the game was first released.

With the current jackpot on the Mega Moolah slot set at a British record at £14 million and still growing at the time of writing, the next winner could well write themselves into the record books and become part of Mega Moolah's growing history of big winners.
