Mega Moolah sets another big record with two wins in two days in April
It was barely a few hours ago that we brought you news of the US$5.7 million jackpot winner who is now in the enviable position of figuring out how to spend their newly acquired wealth!
Sometimes on the Mega Moolah slot, jackpot wins can be separated by a year or more. Sometimes, it can be measured in months, and other times winning jackpots come weeks apart. Rarely, jackpot wins can come just a few days apart, but this week has seen a new record smashed for the Mega Moolah slot with another incredible jackpot winner just HOURS after the last player claimed a prize!
That's because on the 20th April, just a short time after the winner on the 19th April, another player claimed another huge Mega Moolah jackpot. This time the win was for £1,778,226 and 80 pence, with the prize being paid out to a lucky player from the UK. This means of course that immediately after the win, the prize pool reset back to its minimum seed amount of £1,000,000.
Facts and Figures about this latest Mega Moolah win
While the win is not the largest by a Mega Moolah player on record (we reckon it is the second smallest jackpot amount awarded to a player from the UK) what is special about this win is the amount of time between each.
This win means that April 2018 joins June 2014, November 2016 and November 2017 as being the only months when the jackpot has been triggered twice. The gap of just one day between the wins also smashes the record of five days between wins which was set back in June 2014. It is the first time ever that the Mega Moolah jackpot has been triggered twice within a 48-hour time period.
In the other months were two jackpot wins have been triggered, there was a gap of 11 days in November 2016, 11 days in November 2017.
This is the fifth win already of 2018 and that means that 2018 is on course to surpass 2017 as the year with the most Mega Moolah winners. Last year, twelve different players won the Mega Moolah Jackpot, one per month apart from February which saw no winners, but November saw two.
This year, there has been at least one winner every month, apart from April which has already seen two winners and with eight days of the month still to go, who is to say that April 2018 will not become the first month which sees a trio of Mega Moolah progressive jackpot wins?
At the same time during the record-breaking year of 2017, the Mega Moolah jackpot had been triggered three times. As of today, 2018 has already seen five wins during the first four months and there is still over a week left to play in April.
Some of UK's Mega Moolah Winners
This latest winner from the UK becomes the tenth big jackpot winner of the Mega Moolah progressive prize. Let's take a look now at couple of the UK-based winners.
- £13.2m - October 2015 (World Record Jackpot Win)
- £5.8m - December 2012
- £4.4m - March 2018
- £4.3m - December 2017
- £3.4m - November 2016
Top of the tree in the UK and indeed on the list of the all the 46 jackpot winners, remains the British slots player who broke the world record for a jackpot pay out when he won over £13.2 million back in October 2015, more than double what the next biggest winner from the UK has won.
Two British players have won their jackpot playing games that were formerly part of the Mega Moolah network but are now no longer playable. John Orchard won his £5.88m prize in December 2012, while Susan C won here price a year earlier in December 2011. Both these games are now no longer part of the Mega Moolah progressive network.
With ten winners, the UK is the most successful single country when it comes to triggering the Mega Moolah jackpot. Although countries in the eurozone boast more winners of the top prize (19 in total), that area is comprised of many different countries.
In terms of single countries, the UK comes out on top of what is a surprisingly short list of winners of the Mega Moolah top prize:-
- Eurozone countries (19 winners)
- UK & Ireland (10 winners)
- United States (8 winners)
- Canada (6 winners)
- New Zealand (2 winners)
This latest win for a UK-based player means that players from that country have now benefitted in jackpot prizes worth £40.7 million in total over the years.
This latest win means that all of the last seven jackpot winners of the Mega Moolah jackpot have come from either Canada (four of the last seven winners), or the UK (three of the last seven winners). Oddly enough the ten wins preceding these wins all came from countries in the eurozone.
