Have there been any Mega Moolah winners from Sweden?
If you want to take advantage of the new and updated regulations in place in Sweden pertaining to online gambling, then there's no doubt that the chance to play games like Mega Moolah and become one of the game's biggest ever progressive jackpot winners, is hugely enticing.
The fact that the jackpot can range anywhere from the minimum 10 million Swedish krona up to, as it stands at the time of writing, over 173 million krona! These sort of jackpots makes Mega Moolah winners some of the wealthiest slot players (online and offline) ever to spin the reels and of course, if you reside in Sweden, then you are going to want to be part of that action.
However, the question of whether you would be the first player from Sweden to win the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot is a difficult one to answer and the reason for that is because if you are lucky enough to win the Mega Moolah top progressive prize, then you have a decision to make.
What happens if you win Mega Moolah?
Now most slot players are well aware of how you play the Mega Moolah slot. It is extremely easy to deposit some cash with your chosen casino, load up the game and then play through your spins. That is what many players do every day all over the world, but for a lucky few, that session playing the slot can turn into a life-changing moment.
The first thing that will happen on your way towards the jackpot prize is that you will trigger the Mega Moolah Jackpot Bonus Wheel. This game is very different to the usual 5-reel action you get playing the game and it can trigger entirely at random on any spin. The only way to increase your chances of landing this bonus is to bet more money per spin, and to have more spins playing the game.
Once the Jackpot Bonus game is triggered, you are presented with a wheel which is divided into different sectors. These sectors are four different colours and each sector colour corresponds with one of the four Mega Moolah progressive jackpot prizes, the Minor, Mini, Major and Mega prizes. See the screenshots on the Mega Moolah info page.
You will notice there are lots more Minor and Mini sectors than Major and Mega and as you would expect, once you spin the wheel, you are more likely to land these smaller value progressive jackpot prizes.
On occasion, one lucky player may land the Major prize, which is usually triggered relatively regularly and often results in a prize of tens of thousands in your chosen currency. However, once in a while someone will land the wheel in that single White sector and when they do that is when the biggest Mega Moolah progressive jackpot is triggered.
After the screen appears telling you that you have won, it won't be too long before your casino is calling you on your contact number. It's important you answer this call as the casino needs to verify the claim and check that the software was working fine at the time of the win. They will also need to confirm your details and also discover whether you want the win to remain anonymous, or whether to go public.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, a large number of Mega Moolah jackpot winners elect to remain anonymous and details about their wins are therefore very sketchy and it is this which makes it difficult to ascertain whether we have had any winners of the Mega Moolah jackpot from Sweden before now.
It is small possible that any of the anonymous winners listed here, particularly those who elected to play using one of the major currencies, could have been living in Sweden at the time of their win. Unfortunately, their anonymity means that it is impossible to verify this. So we have to assume that any player from Sweden would in fact play in their own currency (as people usually do) and therefore there have not been any SEK winners to date.
Good News - It will be easier for Swedish players to play Mega Moolah from now on
Perhaps one of the main reasons why any Swedish winners of the Mega Moolah slot have, in the past, elected to remain anonymous was that up until the 1st January 2019, the rules and regulations that dealt with online gambling in that country were out of date and impractical. It is therefore unsurprising that Swedish players of the past were undoubtedly cautious to come forward and publicly announce their big wins.
However, from the 1st January 2019, new legislation has come into effect which has clearly defined what type of online gambling is and is not allowed in Sweden. This has clarified the whole situation within the country and this re-regulation of the industry means that Swedish players can now enjoy their games with the trusted and responsible developers, such as Microgaming, who have acquired a license to operate within Sweden.
The upshot of this can only be positive for Swedish slots fans wanting to play Mega Moolah. It means they can play their favourite game more easily, more securely and safe in the knowledge that this new legislation protects their rights and gambling winnings are tax free. This should in turn make more Swedes take on the challenge of trying to win a life-changing amount of money, especially when the jackpot reaches the epic proportions that it has in the past few hours when it crashed through the 173 million krona barrier for only the second time in Mega Moolah's jackpot history.
While Swedish winners of the Mega Moolah jackpot remain unknown for certain at this point, we do know that there have been a couple of big jackpot winners from other Scandinavian countries. One of the first jackpot winners, Klaus E, won their prize when playing from Sweden's neighbour Finland and then a few years later, one player landed their big cash win when playing from another neighbour, Norway.
So while we cannot be certain that any Swedish player has won Mega Moolah's top jackpot prize in the past, the likelihood is that with these improved regulations in place, more Swedish players will be tempted to try their luck on the game and if they do, then it may only be a matter of time before we announce the first confirmed winner from Sweden.
