Microgaming boasts plenty of firsts in its history and one of the main reasons for this is the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot slot which completely changed the way in which online progressive games were played and delivered. This past weekend saw yet another major milestone for both Microgaming and the slot itself as a player called Gabriel L scooped a life changing jackpot. The £3,744,513 prize has not only changed Gabriel L’s life for the better, but is also a brand new record, weighing in at the largest prize ever won on a mobile.
With many of the most popular casinos being linked to Microgaming’s central jackpot network, the company is of course heavily involved in ensuring that the winner receives his prize. The news is of course massive not only to the player but also the industry as a whole and COE of Microgaming, Roger Raatgever, commented: “It is so exciting that a staggering £3.7 million has been hit on our HTML5 client. I am particularly proud of our mobile product as we roll out new content every month and currently offer 103 mobile games, which is the most in the industry. This win will be paid out to Gabriel L in one single payment so he can enjoy the winnings immediately. Watch this space for more exciting developments from Microgaming’s mobile offering in the near future!”
Debbie Taylor, the Casino Manager at Spin Palace, adopted a more congratulatory and less promotional tone, saying: “As a loyal player at Spin Palace Casino, we are thrilled for Gabriel L. It is a great win for him; the biggest Mega Moolah progressive pay-out on mobile! Once again, congratulations Gabriel.”
Finally, no report on the biggest mobile prize in mobile casino history would be complete without a few words from the winner himself and Gabriel L said: “I simply couldn’t believe it! Especially seeing that I won it playing on my mobile phone. I still can’t believe it. Thank you Spin Palace!”
As noted, this is by no means the first time that Mega Moolah has been in the news. The mobile version made headlines earlier this year when in May the game was responsible for the first ever mobile millionaire. As if that was not enough excitement for one week, another lucky player managed to hit the jackpot again within a few days – you wait for ages for a mobile millionaire and then two come along at once!
Microgaming’s progressive network is highly regarded throughout the industry and has paid out more than €375 million in prizes over the years. Of this, more than €15 million has been paid to mobile players alone, ensuring that you have every chance of scooping the big one no matter where you happen to be playing.
