Microgaming’s Mega Moolah is indeed a legendary jackpot network. To date, the progressive jackpot has paid out in excess of €1.45 billion. Of that amount, more than €137 million has been paid across multiple online casinos this year alone.
Having said that, on 6 August 2021, an Optibet player scooped the €7,231,507.69 prize on the progressive network. Following this seven-figure win, the unnamed player joined Microgaming’s ‘hall of fame’ of jackpot millionaires.
After triggering the €7.2 million jackpot, the Optibet player becomes the 101st winner of the highest paying online progressive jackpot network.
It’s to be remembered that the latest win comes hot on the heels of another €6,597,136.10 win on July 2021. Interestingly, the unnamed player also hails from Optibet.com, an Enlabs-owned mobile casino.
As it is the tradition with all Microgaming jackpot wins, the latest Optibet player received the prize in a lump sum.
Speaking immediately after the win, the CEO at Microgaming, John Coleman, sent huge congrats to the lucky player. He said that the company has become accustomed to massive Mega Moolah wins and the latest win is a fantastic one.
Coleman continued by extending the company’s congratulations to Optibet.com for winning the second Mega Moolah progressive jackpot in as many months.
In the meantime, the CPO at Enlabs, Chris Davis, said the company was delighted when Mega Moolah was first won by one of its players. However, for this to happen to another Optibet player in a few weeks is remarkable, he noted.
Further, Davis said that he’s sure that both new and existing gamers at the gambling site will appreciate the situation and attribute it to the luck of the casino brand. Is that true? Maybe!
The above mentioned Mega Moolah wins are undoubtedly impressive. However, that’s nothing compared to the record-shattering €19,430,723.60 won by an unnamed Belgian player in May 2021.
The lucky player scooped the Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah jackpot playing on Napoleon Sports & Casino. As a result, this eight-figure sum becomes the highest ever payout by the progressive network since its inception in November 2006. Also, the win marks the second time the record has been broken.
Just a few days earlier, on 23 April, Microgaming’s WowPot was hit for the second time in just under a month. Again, a Belgian player at Napoleon Sports & Casino struck the €2,025,388.75 prize. This is just five days after a lucky player on 32Red activated the WowPot progressive to walk away with €17.5 million.
Microgaming continues to dish out tens of brand-new online slots each month. On 10 August 2021, the aggregator partnered with Slingshot Studios to return players to the Westeros via the Game of Thrones Power Stacks.
It’s a five reeler with up to 40 paylines and includes fan favorites such as Jon Snow, Sansa Stark, and Tormund Giantsbane. These characters and others like the Night King and Daenerys Targaryen are the game’s highest paying symbols.
On every spin, the exciting Power Stacks feature activates and is available in the base game or free spins. The indicator flips over to unveil a different symbol, landing super-stacked for the spin in question. Of course, this can lead to fiery win potential.
Meanwhile, players are teleported to the Iron Throne after landing three scatters. In return, 15 bonus spins with a wild symbol are awarded.
Overall, Game of Thrones Power Stacks is a highly entertaining online slot. And to make it juicier, the win potential is up to 25,000x the initial stake.
