Microgaming, one of the leading providers of international online gaming software, is announcing that its popular Mega Moolah progressive jackpot has been hit, at the whopping number of €2.5million.
“This is the largest ever payout in the history of online casino gambling,” claims CasinoAdvisor.com. “[I]n May 2009 the progressive jackpot paid out the biggest ever recorded online jackpot win of €6.37million,” adds Microgaming in a news release. “The amount will be paid out in full in a lump sum, unique in an industry that typically adopts staggered annuity payments, so the player can enjoy the winnings immediately.”
“The hits have moved from 4.3 million to 5.6 million to 6.4 million,” CasinoAdvisor.com continues. “Will the next one breach the 7 million mark? That answer is yet some time away. Meanwhile it is time for the industry to rejoice with the winner.”
The jackpot was hit on the 29th of November by a player at Casino Splendido, part of the Roxy Affiliates network. The Mega Moolah online slot is also available at a number of Microgaming-powered online casinos.
