World record pokie payout – Mega Moolah
New online pokie world record win on Mega Moolah
The pokie Mega Moolah, developed by Microgaming, is the new reigning world champion among pokies, when it pay out €17,879,645.12 to one lucky English player. The previous record was set in 2013 at Paf when a Finnish player won 17 861 000 Euros on the NetEnt slot Mega Fortune.
The winner was confirmed on Saturday morning even though the actual winning spins took place on Tuesday the 6th of October, but it took a bit of time to get the confirmation from Microgaming that is the software provider behind the progressive jackpot game Mega Moolah.
The lucky gambler won it on a 25 pence spin on the pokie just before midnight and we are Newpokies.com are pretty sure he is still dreaming about that win!
The operator that the player played at was Betwin, which has been in the industry for quite a long time so they where due to have a massive winner coming through their site.
Microgaming CEO Roger Raatgever confirmed the win and said that Microgaming has paid out “over half a billion Euros” via its online progressive slots since 1998 and congratulated Heywood on his “life-changing and historic win.”
The player still seems to be grounded and have not let the money gone to his head…yet. The first thing he mentioned was to make sure his father would get the best treatment ever since he was having a upcoming surgery and then he would splurge a bit and replace his Fiat Punto with a new Bentley Continental GT.
Microgaming has a lot of progressive jackpots and a few of them can be found on the casinos below
