The Mega Moolah jackpot was won on Monday 16 January by a Captain Cooks Casino player who was enjoying the game on their mobile device. Their win delivered a jackpot payout worth €6,078,249 and, whilst the lucky winner has not been named, we do know that they landed the life-changing sum with a bet of just 50 cents.
‘What a great way to start 2017, winning a mind-blowing €6 million!’ said David Reynolds, who is Games Publisher at Microgaming. ‘Mega Moolah continues to make the headlines, delivering frequent life-changing pay-outs.’
The second multi-million jackpot win this month took place on Wednesday 18 January, when an online casino player in Finland turned a €1 bet into more than €3.5 million. The winner, a 62-year-old woman, was delighted with her success, but complained of it giving her and her husband a sleepless night.
‘I can tell you that we haven’t slept a wink last night,’ she said the morning after her win. ‘I’ve spent the night with my husband talking and going over this ‒ it’s just unbelievable. And the funny thing is, I’ve always had such bad luck in this game before! Now we are going to take it slow and go on a small vacation that was planned ages ago,’ she continued. ‘But we’ll certainly find plenty of uses for this money.’
Simon Hammon, who is Chief Product Officer at NetEnt, was equally thrilled about this latest win, which came just a month after another player won a Mega Fortune Dreams jackpot of more than €7.5 million in December. ‘We’re absolutely delighted that Mega Fortune Dreams has yet again changed a player’s life,’ he said. ‘It only took a couple weeks for us to have our first big winner of 2017. It shows that NetEnt’s games continue to provide casinos with top-class games, giving them the opportunity to make their customers multimillionaires.’
We congratulate both players on their life-changing wins, and we wish them every happiness in the future. And, for those of you who would like to have a go at winning your own seven-figure jackpot, the Mega Moolah jackpot is already worth over £4.1 million, and can be played at 32Red Casino and other venues on the Microgaming platform.
