Mega Moolah Progressive Jackpot Reaches All-Time High of $8.6 Million!

It’s only been 2 months since the last big progressive jackpot win of $7 million on the Mega Moolah online slot and already the new jackpot pot has breached the $8.6 million mark. This has prompted a lot of speculation that it’s ready to pop again soon for one very lucky player. The Safari themed online slot has become one of the most played across all online casinos thanks in no small part to its progressive jackpot which always re-starts itself at $1 million when won.

Big money progressives

Mega Moolah is most famous for its huge progressive jackpots which have paid out life changing sums of money to several lucky players so far, creating overnight millionaires from a few spin of the reels. It’s currently linked to 2 other slot games: The Dark Night and Mega Moolah Summertime. This means the pot fills up faster than other progressive jackpots out there and grows exponentially until it’s scooped up by only one player.

“With all the industry noise and signs pointing towards a huge payout imminent on the horizon, do you fancy your chances trying to win over $8.6 million?”

The slot is played over 5 reels with 25 pay lines and features wilds and free spins galore. Alongside features found across all the regular online slots, one of the most interesting is that during the bonus wheel round you can scoop one of four huge progressive jackpots including the aforementioned $8.3 million super pot. This means there’s an even greater chance to scoop a huge sum of money if lady luck decides to grace you with her presence!

Riding a huge wave of anticipation

The last time a lucky player scooped the progressive jackpot was on April 19th 2015. A Canadian player with the user name ‘MarkA’ won playing online slots via his mobile device. At the time, it stood at $7.5 million and was a previous record for the popular online slot from Microgaming, and if we’re to go by the same timeframe then it’s with good reason that everybody is waiting with baited breath for the next ‘piñata’ to pop.

There has been a wave of noise emanating from the industry this week surrounding the jackpot. John Quinn, Head of Casino Operations at Microgaming, commented that the “tension is now building” over at Microgaming’s H.Q and that there’s a “heightened level of anticipation” for when this record breaking progressive jackpot will be triggered again.
