Microgaming’s Mega Jackpot Surpasses 8 Million

Microgaming’s most popular progressive jackpot is the Mega Jackpot, associated with its Mega Moolah series of games. This four-tiered jackpot is the biggest and the most popular one offered by the developer, available to players at casinos powered by the developer. And Microgaming has announced that its most generous progressive jackpot has once again reached the 8 million mark, an all time high for the developer. Royal Vegas Canada offers the best online entertainment in the country, where players have a chance to win this very generous jackpot. It is the same Royal Vegas that has paid out this year’s largest Mega Jackpot worth over $7.5 million, and it continues to offer its players the full range of Microgaming’s excellent casino games, including their latest releases, on desktop, mobile, smartwatch and running in a browser window. Royal Vegas Canada has the most diversified game library on the Canadian market, with over 700 titles to choose from – with many of them also available on smartphones and tablets. Paired with an excellent selection of special offers, and the huge jackpots it has to offer – with the largest one, the Mega Jackpot, waiting to be won. “We’ve watched the progressive ticker grow considerably over the last few months, and anticipation is building as to when it’s going to be triggered,” John Quinn, Head of Casino at Microgaming commented on the never before seen amount. “When hit, it is going to be a life-changing amount for one very lucky player, and as always, they will take home the win in one lump sum. We don’t believe in annuities!” Still, it will be far below the largest ever jackpot won by a player at a progressive slot machine. Mega Moolah is one of the best known, most popular progressive slots offered by Isle of Man based Microgaming. It shares its Mega Jackpot with Mega Moolah Isis, an ancient Egypt themed version of the game, plus Mega Moolah Summertime, Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive, and The Dark Knight video slot machine – each of them have multi-tiered jackpots, but share only the Mega Jackpot across casinos. The Mega Moolah Mega jackpot seeds at 1 million UK pounds or Euros, depending on the base currency offered by the casino. The game pays out its massive jackpot on average once every 11 weeks, with an average amount of 2.5 million pounds paid out per win. The value of the jackpot has now exceeded 8 million UK pounds / Euros for the first time in its history. And, as Quinn so well said it, it will be a life-changing win. The base Mega Moolah video slot has five reels, three rows, 25 win lines and a jungle theme, with cartoon lions, cartoon zebras, cartoon gazelles, cartoon giraffes and various other cartoon animals grinning at us on its reels (plus the usual 10 to A symbols). The lion acts as a wild symbol in the game, substituting for any symbol except the scatter, and doubling all the line wins it is involved it. The scatter symbol of the game is an ancient smiling… something, between a jungle spirit and an old monkey, which triggers the game’s free spins when landing on 3, 4 or 5 reels. In order to go for the game’s consistent jackpot, players need to wait for the bonus game – a wheel of fortune – to be randomly triggered. The higher their bet, the more often the side game will be triggered. The wheel has four colored sections, one for each of its four progressive jackpots: red for the Mini, orange for the Minor, yellow for the Major and white for the Mega Jackpot.
