Player scoops $5.7m jackpot in Mega Moolah magic with lucky 25 cents!

Update: We erroneously reported the winner was from Canada. This post has been updated 1 May, 2018.

For the fourteenth month in succession the Mega Moolah big jackpot prize has been triggered! This time to one lucky customer playing at the popular Grand Mondial Casino.

S.K. became the 3rd Mega Moolah winner this year and the Rewards Program's 11th multimillionaire when he won $5,691,921.42 off a 25 cent bet on April 19th 2018 at Grand Mondial's mobile casino.

This latest win keeps up the pattern of the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot being won once in each month in 2018 so far and means the last month when the big progressive jackpot was not won, was way back in February 2017.

While 2017 was a record-breaking year for Mega Moolah with the big jackpot prize being won an incredible twelve times over the course of the year (doubling the previous record for wins), 2018 is now on course to beat that record, or at least match it, with four wins so far in the four months of 2018.

Where did the lucky winner play?

Our lucky winner for April 2018 won their prize while playing on their mobile device at the hugely popular Grand Mondial Casino. This casino is open to players across the globe but is especially popular with people in French-speaking parts of the world, such as Quebec, due to its French language support options.

One of the reasons that the Grand Mondial Casino is such a popular choice with players wanting to try their luck on the Mega Moolah slot is that it offers a fantastic starter deal for new customers. Sign up with Grand Mondial Casino today and for a deposit of just $10 (or the equivalent in your local currency), you will receive 150 Chances to win the Mega Moolah jackpot.

That is 150 spins (at 0.25 per spin) to win the same jackpot prize that has just been won by the lucky Canadian player, all for just a $10 deposit. However, that's not all you receive from Grand Mondial Casino as on your second deposit, you will receive a fantastic 100% Matched Deposit Bonus which could be worth as much as $250.

With a choice of more than 550 other games in addition to Mega Moolah, you'll never be short of fantastic games to play too.

The casino is running hot right now in terms of Mega Moolah winners too, with players winning the jackpot in November 2017, December 2017 and now this latest winner in April 2018. That is three winners from the same casino in six months. A phenomenal success rate and another reason why Grand Mondial Casino is the popular choice for Mega Moolah players.

Mega Moolah's Maple Leaf Magic!

If you have been keeping a close eye on the Mega Moolah jackpot prizes over the last few months, then you will no doubt be aware that this is the fourth time out of the last six jackpot wins that the lucky player has heralded from Canada.

In the history of the Mega Moolah slot, Canadian players have contributed a total of six wins for combined prize money of CA$38.3 Million, all since April 2015 when the very first Canadian player landed the Mega Moolah jackpot prize.

Our latest jackpot winner is the fourth highest of those six winners. The biggest winner from Canada came back in November 2016 when they pocketed CA$11.6 Million. This is then followed by two winners, one from April 2015 and the other from February 2018, who both pocketed a prize of around CA$7.5 Million. Then comes our April 2018 winner with their CA$5.7 Million prize with the other two winners taking home CA$3.7 Million (January 2018) and CA$1.4 Million (November 2017).

What is striking about the more recent winners from Canada is the short time frame in which they have landed their wins. Four of the last six winners of the jackpot prize have played from Canada. That is an astonishing 66.67% success rate for Canada players winning the jackpot compared to other countries. Indeed the only other country to land winners during the last six months is the UK, who has landed two winners in that period.

Canada's latest winner a first from a Mobile device

April's lucky winner from Canada has however set their own first. They have become the first ever player from Canada to win their jackpot playing from a mobile device.

With the growth in mobile gaming being so pronounced, it is perhaps unsurprising that an increasing number of winners are now hitting their life-changing wins on a smartphone or tablet. Three of the last five winners have won their prizes playing via mobile (both British winners in that period won on a mobile device).

Over the history of Mega Moolah, the jackpot has been won from a mobile device a total of nine times. The first mobile winner coming in May 2013, with that player winning from New Zealand. Other Mobile winners have heralded from the United States (one in June 2014), the Eurozone (four winners in August 2016 and January, March and April 2017), plus the two British winners and the latest winner from Canada as mentioned previously.

One thing is certain, with the number of mobile slot players increasing greatly, it seems likely that a greater percentage of Mega Moolah jackpot winners will land their life-changing win using their hand-held device.
