An online slots player has landed a jackpot worth €6,355,463 on the Mega Moolah game, just two months after the same game delivered a top prize of €6,905,670 in April. The winner this time has been named as Rawiri Pou, who is 27 years old, and he can now look forward to planning how to spend the rest of his life now that his online gaming hobby has made him a multi-millionaire.

The Mega Moolah game is one of the world’s most popular slots, and available in several versions, all of which share the same progressive jackpot. Created by Microgaming, Mega Moolah currently holds the world record for ‘Largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game’ – an accolade that came after UK player Jonathon Heywood won a staggering £13,213,838 (€17,879,645) back in October 2015.

Rawiri, who is from New Zealand, is understandably thrilled with the win, and it is taking time for the magnitude of his new-found fortune to sink in. ‘I still can’t believe this is real,’ he said. ‘I’ve been in shock since I won and it is literally going to change my life. There is so much I want to do with this money and it couldn’t have come at a better time. My family are overwhelmed and so happy.’

Microgaming’s Head of Casino, John Quinn, extended his congratulations on Rawiri’s ‘mega win’, and explained how delivering big jackpots is something that he is particularly happy about. ‘Mega Moolah and our progressive jackpot network continues to make the headlines. To be able to deliver frequent life-changing jackpots to our operators’ players is certainly a highlight of the job.’

The Mega Moolah jackpot was readjusted after Rawiri became the latest winner, and is currently worth over £5.5 million. Those of you who would like to have a go at making jackpot-winning headlines of your own can play the game at 32Red Casino and other venues on the Microgaming platform.
