February 6, 2022, will remain in one lucky player’s mind for quite some time. This is after the player struck the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot for a massive €7,296,286.88. The popular jackpot slot from Microgaming is not a stranger to the progressive jackpot world. This latest win takes the number of instant EUR millionaires to 70. Quite an achievement, don't you think? GoodLuckMate is only full of hearty congratulations to the lucky player. 

How to Play Mega Moolah

This slot comes with a 5x3 grid and 25 fixed paylines. You only need a minimum of €0.25 to spin the reels or you could go for the maximum bet set at €6.25. The main game features symbols responsible for your payouts with up to 75,000 coins up for grabs. 

However, the maximum win stands at 225,000 coins which you can land in the free spins feature. You can activate this feature by landing three or more monkey scatter symbols in the base game. 

But the star of the show is the jackpot, which is randomly activated. A wheel will pop up afterward with the different jackpots ready to be won. 

More About Microgaming’s Mega Moolah

Mega Moolah first appeared in November 2006 but it started as an online slot game before dipping its feet into the progressive jackpot world. The jackpot slot features four different jackpots with the top seeding at €1 million. Since then, the slot has become a force to reckon with, with at least 18.4 million jackpots paid out in all its tiers. The amount paid out to players in these tiers is now approaching €1 billion (€919 million).

Fifteen years in the business, this African-themed slot has set new payout records cementing its name as one of the most popular progressive jackpot slots. One of the biggest wins ever recorded on the slot was back in September 2018. A lucky player walked away with a mind-blowing €18.9 million. 

The record stood for nearly three years until Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah stepped in with a new record payout. April 2021 saw lady luck shine her magical wand on a lucky player who walked away with a jaw-dropping €19.4 million. This release is a variant of the original Mega Moolah. 

Microgaming has since added seven more titles to its portfolio. And there’s more coming in 2022.
