Microgaming Mega Moolah Online Casino Progressive Hit Again

July 10, 2009

It is official now. Microgaming has issued a press release stating that the player who hit the Mega Moolah jackpot last week was a Swedish player betting at Unibet. Since the player was wagering in Euros the prize given out was €1.17 million, which is considerably more than 1.17 million when converted to US Dollars.

The 48 year old winner from the north of Sweden goes by the alias of ‘L’. He is a regular player at Unibet online casino. In an interview given to Unibet, ‘L’ described his first nights as a millionaire as “Sleepless nights, but in a good way...” Despite the enormity of the amount, this will not be a life changing experience for ‘L’. He said, "With the winnings I will definitely pamper my daughter, buy a new car and travel around Europe to experience international football matches. No big changes needed, I like my life as it is now and it will surely even become better thanks to this win!" ‘L’ is lucky that Mega Moolah resets at 1 million because the slot machine has just paid over six million Euros only a few weeks back and was ticking at just above its reset amount. Again ‘L’ is fortunate that Microgaming pays the full progressive jackpot amount in a single cash payout, unlike in some other cases where players are paid in installments.

Microgaming’s CEO Roger Raatgever congratulated the latest Mega Moolah millionaire. He said, “It is absolutely incredible that just two months ago we announced the biggest ever online casino win through the progressive slot Mega Moolah, and yet again, so soon afterwards, it has created another millionaire. Players love the high levels of entertainment the game provides and the jackpots are truly groundbreaking.”

This is the first big win at Unibet on a Microgaming progressive jackpot slot game and the second largest payout ever at the online casino. Unibet also offers slot machines powered by NetEnt. It has registered some huge wins on those slots. The third largest payout at Unibet was on the slot game Arabian Nights. This happened in January 2009 when a player ‘Nils’ from Norway won the jackpot of €1.1 million. The largest win at Unibet is on another NetEnt slot game aptly called Mega Fortune. A Dutch player named ‘M’ won €4.3 million on this slot game just three weeks ago. This year has been good at Unibet online casino.

Petter Nylander, CEO of Unibet said, “We are pleased to again make one of our players a millionaire! “Moneytainment” for everyone, anytime, everywhere, that is what Unibet stands for. And this is not the end – there’s a lot more to be won on”
