There's been some great news for one lucky player at Captain Cook's Mobile Casino on the 16th January 2017 as this year's first Mega Moolah jackpot win is now confirmed.

A Mega Moolah jackpot worth CA$8,453,754.28 was won on a mobile device after the lucky and novice player took up Captain Cook's signup offer of 100 Chances to Become a Millionaire for just 5 dollars. You will learn a little more about the lucky win below, but first let's take a look at something else and at the casino where the lucky player won this life-changing amount of money.

Who was Captain Cook?

Captain Cook's Casino may strike you as an odd name for an online casino, so who was the original eponymous Captain Cook?

His name was Captain James Cook and he was a captain in the Royal Navy. Best known as an explorer, navigator and cartographer, and for making the first detailed maps of Newfoundland in modern day Canada. Captain Cook made his name as one of the greatest explorers when he became the first European to make contact with east coast Australia, New Zealand and Hawaii.

Now it appears Captain Cook will also and always be remembered in Mega Moolah's hall of fame :)
