Will the next Mega Moolah winner set a new world record slot win?
It's been a long time coming since 2015 and the excitement has been building, but we can confirm that if the next Mega Moolah progressive jackpot winner comes from the UK, they will set a new Guinness World Record for an online slot win.
The current Mega Jackpot has surpassed the previous record held by Jon Heywood who set the record back in October 2015 when winning a £13,2213,838 jackpot (equating to €17,879,645).
One interesting fact about the Mega Moolah slot is that as the game can be played across a number of different currencies, had the jackpot been won in New Zealand Dollars or Canadian Dollars for example, then the prize amount would not have set a new world record.
That's because when you consider the exchange rate, the total amounts won in these currencies would amount to less than Mr Heywood's previous Guinness World Record, which was calculated in Euros.
However, after crashing through the £13.2 million barrier early in September 2018, thus reaching a new British record, the jackpot just continued and grew past the €17,879,645 previous record amount for the Euro as well. This means that if the next lucky winner does come from the UK, they will indeed set a new world record for a progressive jackpot slot win at an internet casino.
Indeed, this latest win is so large that it crashes well inside the top ten wins for any slot game, even including the massive progressive games played at the land-based Vegas casinos, some of which are seeded at $10,000,000.
Also consider this; the Mega Moolah jackpot is growing at a pace of £3 million a month! How high can it go? No one can tell as the jackpot is triggered randomly.
How can you win the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot?
If you are wondering how all these lucky winners managed to land such massive prizes, then we need to delve a little into the wonderful world of the Mega Moolah game. This is a game which can be played from as little as 0.25 per spin and which gives every player, on every spin an equal chance to trigger the random Jackpot Bonus Game.
While the jackpot is triggered randomly, the game logic will offer an advantage to those betting max bet on each spin. This is only fair as players betting max amount are also contributing more to the jackpot pool than compared to those betting minimum amounts. I am not encouraging players to play max bet all the time, the best strategy is to mix it up. Here are three strategy articles to check out; Long term strategy, Progressive strategy, and Winning Mega Moolah.
Once you have triggering the Jackpot Bonus Game you will have a shot at one of four progressive jackpot prizes, the Mini, Minor, Major or Mega, the last of which is the big one, but even the Major jackpot can offer decent prizes.
Unlike some progressive games, which require you to land a certain sequence of symbols on a certain pay line to trigger a progressive win, Mega Moolah is slightly different. You play the base game, which is based on an African safari theme, and on any random spin, a special Jackpot Bonus Game can be triggered and launched over the base game.
This bonus game presents you with a large wheel. This wheel is divided into many sectors and each sector is given a colour and each colour corresponds to one of the four progressive jackpots available to be won, Mini, Minor, Major and Mega.
Of course, there are many more Mini and Minor sectors on the wheel than Major, or the Mega (of which there is just the one) so when you spin the reel, you are more likely to win the two smaller progressive jackpot prizes, than you are the two large ones.
However, hit the Major prize and you could land a jackpot prize of between tens of thousands and hundreds of thousands of pounds. However, if you see the wheel come to rest in that single white sector, then that triggers the Mega Moolah jackpot prize and that is when your life can change beyond your wildest dreams.
What can you as the jackpot winner be able to spend your fortune on?
What can you spend the Mega Jackpot money on? After such a big win a couple of bottles of the finest champagne is certainly in order, and there's no need to be looking in the local supermarket for a cheap glass of fizz. Why not enjoy a Methuselah of 1996 Dom Perignon Rose Gold champagne? This large 6-litre bottle would set you back around £37,500, but that would be small change!
A car is always a popular buy with someone landing a massive jackpot win and of course, you can buy some rare cars for many millions of pounds. But still equally as eye-catching would be a new Lamborghini Veneno or a Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita.
If you fancy a more secluded or sunny lifestyle in which to enjoy your winnings, then the unspoilt island of Motu Tohepuku in the South Pacific is for sale. With its own coconut grove and white sand beaches, surrounded by an azure blue lagoon, you could make this 18.90 acres of paradise your own - and for "peanuts" I might add as it is for sale at around half a million dollars only!
Part of the fun of winning such a large amount is living your dreams and the lucky winner will no doubt be spending a good deal of time deciding exactly which dreams they are going to fulfill.
What happens after a Mega Moolah progressive jackpot win?
After the jackpot has been won and paid out in a single lump sum to the lucky winner, it will reset back to a smaller amount. However, that does not mean that it cannot be won again soon after. On the 22nd May 2017, the jackpot was triggered twice separate by just hours, for €3,722,530.12 and for CA$1,000,350.40.
Remember, the Mega Moolah jackpot can be won at any time, on any spin. The game does not know how much time has passed since the last win, it cannot decide not to pay out a player until the jackpot has grown. It operates based on a Random Number Generator.
So even if the jackpot is triggered today, it can pay out the very next day again. This is beauty of the Mega Moolah - there is no other jackpot slot like it.
