Microgaming progressive jackpots are falling like skittles in a bowling alley and the lucky players have been able to stock up for the Black Friday shopping spree. Mega Moolah and Major Millions have each hit twice in three weeks.
The biggest news is of the 11 million plus hit on the Mega Progressive tier of Mega Moolah on November 5. The Canadian punter Marcus Goodwin ended up richer by CA$11,633,898.44. The ticker was reduced by the GBP equivalent of the win as is the practice of Microgaming. Goodwin said, “This is obviously life-changing! I can't believe it! I will definitely be buying a nice big house and a vacation cottage. And taking my entire family on a first class trip to Africa! This will mean great Christmas presents for everyone!”
This was the 29th time the Mega Moolah jackpot has been won and is the second largest hit ever. It narrowly eclipsed the 11,609,942 payout in August this year. The biggest win on Mega Moolah Progressive was for 13.2 million in October 2015. A great feature about this win was that the player was wagering in British pounds. This was the largest online progressive jackpot win ever when converted to equivalent currency.
The presses have been stopped to report another Mega Moolah progressive hit barely 4 hours before the time of writing. The amount won was 5,633,226. No other details like currency or player name or online casino are known as yet. One thing can be deduced. The win was not in British pounds because the progressive jackpot ticker was reset to just over 2 million.
The other popular Microgaming progressive jackpot Major Millions was hit about three weeks ago for £1,185,047. This was the third biggest hit ever on this progressive slot. Microgaming powered online bingo halls offer slots machines as well and the winner Mandy Bowman was playing at one of those. The Scottish lass was playing on her mobile device. After claiming a £400 bingo win, she decided to shift to Major Millions to spend some of her money. Bowman was down to her last £3 and thought she would go for one more spin before calling it quits for the night. That spin did the trick. Bowman said that she usually enjoys a flutter once a month and is a very conservative player. She has yet to decide how to spend the huge win, which has already been paid to her in one single lump sum. Major Millions was hit again ten days ago for 256,231 credits.
