A mobile slots player going by the initials D.P. has won a €7.9 million jackpot, which is the biggest ever mobile slots jackpot.
The player hit the jackpot through Microgaming's Mega Moolah slot. This is just the latest multi-million dollar payout by Mega Moolah, which is nicknamed "The Millionaire Maker."
As for D.P., she didn't offer many details following the win, which is common among newly minted millionaires who want to avoid unwanted attention. But D.P. did say that she was going to celebrate with champagne and continue playing mobile slots for fun. D.P. also says that her windfall occurred on an iPad.
According to John Quinn, Head of Casino at Microgaming, this €7.9 million jackpot is likely on the the start of huge mobile jackpots.
"With mobile gaming now accounting for almost half of all game-play, it's no surprise that we are seeing mega wins on this platform," says Quinn. "We are extremely proud to have the longest-standing and biggest progressive jackpot network on the market, which also holds a Guinness World Records title.
"To now claim the largest ever mobile jackpot win is very pleasing. On behalf of everyone at Microgaming, congratulations to D.P. on this mammoth mobile win."
Let's continue this discussion on Mega Moolah by covering other recent winners along with how you can hit the progressive jackpot.
Rawiri Pou, a KFC worker from New Zealand, kicked his summer off right by winning a Mega Moolah jackpot worth over NZ$10.1 million. Despite becoming rich beyond his wildest dreams, the 27-year-old said that he would remain at KFC until deciding what he wants to do with his future.
Just two months before Pou, an anonymous player won a €6.9 million Mega Moolah prize in April. Unlike D.P., this player didn't even give their initials, hoping to keep their private life completely separate in the aftermath of the win.
Of course, we can't forget the biggest win of all time, which comes courtesy of Jon Heywood's €17.9 million jackpot last October. The British soldier's prize is not only the largest in Mega Moolah history, but also the biggest of any online slots jackpot.
Playing for the top Mega Moolah jackpot is easy: you just find any Microgaming casino and play Mega Moolah slots through your smartphone, tablet, PC, or Mac.
As mentioned above, the minimum bet is $0.25, and this qualifies you for the Mega Jackpot - a.k.a. The Millionaire Maker. The $0.25 bet not only qualifies you for the Mega prize, but also the Major, Minor, and Mini jackpots, which can grow quite large.
Given that Mega Moolah's four jackpots are awarded randomly, you don't have to worry about your bet size or anything but spinning the reels. If you trigger the wheel-based bonus, then you'll spin for one of the four progressive prizes and hopefully win big like D.P.
