The Mega Moolah jackpot that had been rapidly growing for months has been won by a Canadian player, setting a record for games provider Microgaming for its biggest ever win at a mobile casino. The player, known as Mark A, triggered the top prize on the progressive slot game last week to instantly become CAD $7.5 million (£4 million) richer.

The jackpot had shot speedily past £7 million since it was last won in November 2014, but players in different countries usually play in their own currency. The top prize is reset to £1 million after it is won, but when it is claimed in a currency other than British Pounds Sterling that value is dependent on the exchange rate. Following the win in Canada, the jackpot was reset to £3.4 million, and it has already gone past the £4 million mark.

Microgaming has confirmed that Mark A’s success is its biggest ever jackpot win on a mobile casino. John Quinn, Microgaming Head of Casino, said: “We’ve been watching the progressive ticker grow substantially over the last few weeks; anticipation was building as to when it was going to strike. Once again the jackpot was hit via a mobile device; it really is a sign of today’s industry and how prevalent mobile is. Congratulations to Mark A on becoming one of the biggest jackpot winners in Microgaming’s history.”

Known as ‘The Millionaire Maker’, Mega Moolah is a 25-line, five-reel game which has an African wildlife theme and anyone who succeeds in spinning their way to a perfect combination goes on to play the Mega Moolah Jackpot Wheel. There are four potential jackpots on offer - Mini, Minor, Major and Mega - and Mark A was lucky enough to land the Mega Moolah jackpot.

The spins are completely random, so the jackpot could go again quickly or build up to a new record. The next winner could be another lucky Canadian playing on a mobile casino or a British slots fan. Several different operators offer Mega Moolah, including 32Red Casino, so why not find out what the fuss is about and give the game a go?
