Microgaming's Mega Moolah hits twice in one week and creates first ever Mobile slot millionaire!
ISLE OF MAN – Microgaming’s Mega Moolah progressive jackpot slot has created two instant millionaires in the space of one week! The first lucky player scooped over €3 million, and just seven days later the jackpot was hit again at $1 million NZD, creating the world’s first ever mobile slot millionaire.

On May 3rd, a staggering €3,036,433.21 jackpot was hit by a German Casino La Vida player on the Mega Moolah slot. Elated with his win, jackpot winner ‘GL’ explains: “When I saw €3 million appear on my screen I just couldn’t believe it, I’m still in shock! This is such a life changing amount of money, and my first priority is to purchase a house with my winnings.”

Victoria Lamonte, Promotions Manager at Casino La Vida, adds: “GL’s winning story is remarkable. He signed up with Casino La Vida on 5th May around 8am and began playing Mega Moolah right away. Just one hour later he won the progressive jackpot; clearly luck is with La Vida’s players!”

With a guaranteed prize pool of one million, Mega Moolah’s jackpot was automatically re-set and a mere seven days later, a Royal Vegas player on his mobile device struck fortune, taking home a total of $1,062,335.94 NZD.

Marketing Manager at Royal Vegas, says: “We are thrilled that it’s a Royal Vegas player that has become the first ever mobile slot millionaire. We wish our winner all the best with his new found fortune.”

Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, adds: “Creating the first ever mobile millionaire is a huge milestone for Microgaming, and furthermore the industry as a whole. As the mobile gaming sector continues with its remarkable growth, this will be the first of many players to win big through their mobile or tablet device.”
