Yukon Gold Casino player lands a CA$4.7 million Mega Moolah win on mobile!

It's time to pop the Moet for one lucky casino player as earlier today on the 5th September the player landed a life-changing jackpot of CA$4,746,748.54!

Given that the jackpot reset back to around 1.8 million just after the jackpot win was confirmed, it does seem to indicate that this lucky winner has landed their prize in Canadian Dollars, which would seem to suggest that they are most likely to have won the jackpot prize from Canada whilst playing at the Yukon Gold mobile casino!

How do we know this? Well look at our own tweet below.

Of course, at this early stage, details about the winner, whether they will go public or not, are all still very much unknown and it may well take a few days for all this to be settled.

Let's now take a look at how this latest Mega Jackpot win sits in with the other big jackpot prizes claimed so far in what has been a remarkable 2019 for the popular progressive game.

2019 Mega Jackpot stats

This latest win is the second consecutive month that the jackpot had been landed in 2019 and it is the eighth win in 2019 of the jackpot prize. This now makes 2019 the second-most successful year for Mega Moolah jackpot triggers, as it has now eclipsed the seven wins achieved back in 2018 and there are still three whole months of the year still remaining to increase that number.

2019 still has a little way to go to match or even beat the record number of wins in a calendar year which is set at 13 in 2017, but it is entirely possible that we could well see double digits in terms of the number of wins by the time the year is out.

Or, we may not see another win this year and instead see that jackpot climb to soar to much higher jackpots, as was the case earlier this year.

The eight wins this year have now crashed through the 60 million barrier in terms of the amount of cash won across different currencies.

Canada scores big on Mega Moolah in 2019

Of the eight winners in 2019, five have landed their prizes in Canadian dollars, which continues the incredible run of good fortune that Canadian players have had on the Mega Moolah slot. If this latest winner is confirmed as a Canadian Dollar winner (which we believe they will be very shortly) then this will mean that Canadian jackpot winners alone have earned 42,228,633.73 in jackpot prizes alone over the course of the current year.

Alongside the lucky five Canadian players we have also had one US Dollar winner (on 5th March) and there were two successive winners who played using the seed currency British Pounds (24th May and 17th June), who won just over £8.5 million in total.

It is strange to think that up until June 2014, no player from Canada had won the Mega Moolah jackpot prize, but since then we have had 17 winners of the Mega Moolah jackpot earn their prize in Canadian Dollars and over that time, they have won CA$113,732,388.43 in total. This far outstrips the money won in any other currency. The next closest in the list being the €69,600,799.43 won by players using the Euro as the base currency.

The 38 times that the Mega Moolah jackpot has been won since the very first player landed their prize in Canadian dollars in June 2014, has seen 17 Canadian Dollar winners, this accounts for 44.7% of all wins of the jackpot prize since June 2014.

That is an astonishing success rate for a country which has a considerably smaller population (37.6 million) than the likes of the Britain or the Eurozone.

Other interesting facts about the September 5th Mega Jackpot

We have already looked at the success of Canadian players in recent times and how this latest jackpot win fits into the wins that we have already seen in 2019, but there are a number of other factors that make this win interesting.

While we don't yet know what machine the lucky winner was playing to land the victory, the stats suggest it is hugely likely to be the original Mega Moolah slot with the jackpot only being triggered three times in total on any of the other machines that have offered, or currently still offer, a chance at landing the Mega Moolah jackpot prize. In contrast, the current Mega Moolah slot has been responsible for well over 50 wins.

We've also seen a trend recently for players to land their win on a mobile device and this latest win again shows the huge interest in Mega Moolah mobile!

What is confirmed is that this winner, who landed their prize at around 04.00 UTC, is the first player to land their win at this hour of the day. This means there is just one period of time, 10am to 11am which is yet to see the Mega Moolah jackpot landed as all other hour slots have seen at least one, if not more, winners.

This lucky winner is also the fourth player to land their prize in September which has been one of the quieter months for Mega Moolah jackpots over the years. Having landed their jackpot on the 5th, they become the first player to land their prize on this date with the other September wins coming on the 6th, 25th and 28th of the month.

The good news for Mega Moolah fans is that with this win being in Canadian Dollars, the jackpot fund was not completely drained and there remained over 1.8 million in the prize fund once this jackpot had been paid out. This means that the Mega Moolah jackpot has already started climbing once again and who knows when the next winner will land.

It could be within hours, days, weeks or even months and unless you play it, you can't win it!
