Microgaming Mega Moolah Progressive Hit

It was a question of when and that has been answered. On Saturday the 9th of May 2009 one lucky online player has become a millionaire six times over and more. The watershed Microgaming progressive jackpot online slot game, Mega Moolah, has been hit. That much is for sure. And this has happened while most of the online gaming news portals are still going gaga over its breaching the 6 million mark. The exact hit is for 6,374,434 credits. This is the largest ever payout in the history of online casino gambling. The jackpot ticker on display all over the Internet is back to 1,000,874 credits. The jackpot resets at a million credits.

However there are several questions that remained unanswered as of now. Who is that lucky player? To which country does he belong? What will he or she do with the six million? The most common answers to this question are giving the children a good education, paying off the mortgage on the house and going for a holiday. Will it be any different this time? In which Microgaming online casino was the hit made? Was the player wagering in U.S. Dollars or Euros or British Pounds. If the player was wagering in Euros then the hit of over 6 million credits will amount to a whopping 8.5 million U.S Dollars and if the lucky player was wagering in British Pounds then the hit will amount to an even more whopping 9.6 million U.S. Dollars. Another question that remains unanswered is which version of Mega Moolah was hit. The first version with the African Safari theme was released in November 2006. Then Mega Moolah Five Reel Drive was launched in January 2009. The latest version Mega Moolah Summertime was released only a few days ago. All three are linked to the same progressive jackpot. If the hit has been on Summertime, and there is every chance that it is so, then the event is all that more remarkable. The bonus round containing the jackpot game is randomly triggered. Hence another question that is bound to be asked is what amount was the triggering wager. The answers to these questions will emerge in the coming days when the customary verification is over.

The online casino at which the hit took place is going to milk the event for all it is worth. Blackjack Ballroom online casino and the Casino Rewards group to which it belongs are still advertising the 5.6 million hit made on Mega Moolah in April 2008. The lucky winner then was Klaus E of Finland who hit the jackpot with a wager of only 0.50 credits. The first hit on this jackpot was 4.3 million credits.

The hits have moved from 4.3 million to 5.6 million to 6.4 million. Will the next one breach the 7 million mark? That answer is yet some time away. Meanwhile it is time for the industry to rejoice with the winner.
