Microgaming created the original African-themed Mega Moolah in 2006, launching this 4-tier progressive jackpot slot in November of that year with a maximum starting amount of €1 million. This legendary game has now paid out over 18.4 million jackpots across all levels and across all games, totaling over €919 million!
Over its 15-year history, the original slot has produced a number of life-changing payouts, including in 2018 when a lucky Grand Mondial casino player won €18,915,872.81, setting a new Guinness World Record for the largest online slot machine jackpot payout.
This record stood until last April, when a Belgian Napoleon Sports & Casino player won an impressive €19,430,723.60 prize in Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah, developed by Triple Edge, one of Microgaming's partners.
Since the launch of the original Mega Moolah 16 years ago, partner studios have created a total of 7 versions to connect to the network. According to Microgaming, additional games are in the progressive jackpot pipeline for this year!
