the £13 million Mega Moolah Jackpot

Last week we announced that the £13 million Mega Moolah Progressive Jackpot had been hit but that details were still forthcoming. This week, Microgaming announced that the big win happened at Betway Online Casino and that the lucky winner is a 26 year old soldier and Afghanistan veteran who has chosen not to remain anonymous.

Jon Heywood hit the Jackpot on the 6th of October 2015 after placing a bet of just 25p on the Mega Moolah Progressive Jackpot Slot. In spite of winning the life-changing sum, he was asked to remain mum on the subject until the win could be validated and made public, so instead of celebrating straight away, he had to act as though nothing happened and even went to work the next day.

Now, this week after the win was validated, the news has been made public and Heywood has spoken out on the subject of what he has planned for all that cash. First on the list is attending to his father’s health and buying him the best medical treatment possible as he is currently awaiting a lung and heart transplant. Heywood says that family is his first priority and that he’d give all his money to see his dad back in perfect health.

In addition to a family holiday aboard a Mediterranean Cruise, Heywood who currently owns a Fiat Punto would like to upgrade his ride to a yellow Bentley Continental GT – a car which he says he has never even dreamt of driving let alone owning.

As part of the Microgaming network that pays out all Progressive Jackpot wins in a single lump sum, Heywood will receive his prize money in full – something that is not common practice at all online casinos as some impose limits on payouts which means that huge jackpots like this one can take years to be paid out in full.

Since the win, the Mega Moolah Jackpot ticker has been reset to its default total of £1 million and is already steadily climbing as it awaits the next lucky winner.

Mega Moolah 13 Million Jackpot Hit!

Mega Moolah Jackpot Win

Slots players have been avidly following and playing the Mega Moolah Progressive Slot which has been steadily climbing upwards through the multi-million marks over the past few months.

Now the online casino player community is abuzz at the news that the massive £13,212,882 Mega Moolah Progressive Slots Jackpot has been hit! Early yesterday morning we realised that the Mega Moolah jackpot counter had been re-set to the $/€/£ 1,000,000 mark and later in the day, although no official announcements had been made, player forums featured discussions on the topic.

At present all we know is that the progressive jackpot was won in British Pounds (GBP) – as Microgaming generally adds any currency difference back to the next re-set figure if it is won in Dollars or Euros, which means that the exchange rate deficit then benefits the next winner. This time however it was reset to 1 million, which means that the highest possible amount was won by the lucky winner.

Details on who has won and which Microgaming powered online casino they were playing at are still forthcoming and Microgaming has not released any statements regarding the big win as yet, nor have any of the online casinos within its network, but as soon as we have the details you’ll know!

According to reports, once official, this win will represent the second largest win in online Progressive Jackpot history, and is the 25th Mega Jackpot win since 2009. Only one other win to date has been greater – the Mega Fortune Jackpot from Net Entertainment which paid out at €17,861,813 in 2013.

The Mega Moolah Progressive Mega Jackpot is Microgaming’s most popular jackpot which can be won by playing any of the games linked in the series which include Batman: The Dark Knight and Mega Moolah Summertime slots. The jackpot pays out, on average, every 12 weeks.

As mentioned previously, the slot has already reset to its default 1 million mark, so even if it pays out sooner, the winner will enjoy a life changing win.

Jackpots in July at Betsson Mobile Casino!

Something strange and wonderful has been going on at online and mobile casinos this month…all across the net, players have been hitting life changing jackpots! Some of the biggest wins of the month have taken place at Betsson Casino, with not just one but two large jackpots being hit by two lucky players, both from Germany!

The first and largest jackpot totalling a whopping €3,023,721 was won by a 23 year old woman whose €0.50 bet made her Betsson’s latest multi-millionaire.

According to the winner who has chosen to remain anonymous, after signing up at the casino she immediately downloaded the mobile app and received a message about the Mega Fortune promotion which peaked her interest. So as soon as her kids were in bed, she and her husband decided to play and the impossible happened…they hit the jackpot and ended up jumping around their living room.

The couple who live in Hessen Germany with their young family plan to share their winnings by donating a portion thereof to a local children’s charity, which means that not only their own young family, but many others will benefit from their good fortune.

The second winner, a 29 year old man from Hannover, Germany hit a €553,064 on Dream Chance jackpot in Oily Business after wagering just €2.50! Talk about returns!

The player, who had just signed up to the casino was still playing with his first deposit on his mobile phone when he won the jackpot.

According to the man, he had been suffering from insomnia and was trying out his newly downloaded Betsson app when his luck changed and he just stared at his phone in disbelief before telling his girlfriend what had happened.

These two wins just go to show that no matter where you are your luck can change at any time and while you’re enjoying your favourite casino games, you may just become one of Betsson casino’s next big winners! So play now!

Microgaming Progressives Pass the 8 Million Mark

July has been a month for massive progressive jackpot wins at Playtech powered online casinos, with over £4 million being paid out in just one week – a feat that is simply unheard of. The first win was a massive £3.7 million which was won on the Beach Life Progressive slot, and the second win of £450,000 paid out just days later on the Chests of Plenty online slot.

Not to be outdone though, Microgaming powered online casino like Betway Casino are celebrating a milestone of their own, with their progressive jackpot prize pool passing the £/€/$8 million mark!

The software giant’s progressive jackpot pool (which at the time of publishing has exceeded the £/€/$8.2 million mark) runs across popular titles like Batman: The Dark Knight, Mega Moolah and Mega Moolah Isis, all of which are available for play at Microgaming powered online casinos like Betway.

Head of Casino at Microgaming, John Quinn commented that the company has been watching the Mega Progressive ticker growing rapidly over the last few months, adding that the anticipation is building and there is much speculation over when it will be triggered.

While most other providers apply maximum payout limits to their progressive jackpot payouts, when the Microgaming Mega jackpot is hit, the sum which will be life-changing for one very lucky player, will be paid out in a lump sum – a feature unique to Microgaming powered online casinos. The payout will also be made in the currency in which the player was playing in.

So if you’re feeling lucky, there has never been a better time to play one of Microgaming’s Mega progressives – you may just be their next multi-millionaire!

Playtech’s Beach Life Progressive hits at £3.7 million

Playtech’s Beach Life Progressive Online Slot is one that most slots enthusiasts have had their eye on for some time due to the fact that it recently exceeded the £3.5 million mark. Of course, every big jackpot must payout eventually and this week a UK based player known as “Hilton” hit the jackpot and walked away with a massive £3.7 million win.

This jackpot total is the second largest in Playtech’s 16 year history, making Hilton an exceedingly lucky guy. According to BGO Casino where the Jackpot was won, Hilton (not Paris Hilton who is a brand ambassador for the firm) played 50p per line (or £10 per spin) to unlock five sunshine symbols and change his life forever.

Beach Life is one of Playtech’s most popular progressive slots titles and also holds the record for the largest ever Jackpot win amounting to an unbelievable $8.2 million in February of 2012.

The £3.7 million prize is a whopping 379,904 times Hilton’s original bet and to put it all in true perspective, around 142 times the average U.K. salary.

When interviewed about his life-changing win, Hilton who has chosen not to reveal his identity, was still in shock, commenting that things like this always happen to other people. He said that as yet he does not have plans to spend the money but will be treating his parents to a bungalow and ensuring that his nieces and nephews get a good start to life. The player was due to go away on holiday in the UK, but we’re sure he’ll be setting his vacation sites a whole lot further afield in future, if not enjoying the beach life permanently.

COO, Shimon Akad related that the win was a tremendous one on one of Playtech’s most popular slots and at one of their newest licensees (BGO casino went live on the Playtech platform earlier in 2015). He added that the news was an indication that Playtech’s Casino Jackpot Network continues to deliver outstanding results for players.

While it may seem like sunshine and roses, there is a downside to not playing at big UK based operator names like William Hill Casino Club, and that is the fact that not all Playtech powered online casinos payout big jackpot wins like Hilton’s in one lump sum. BGO for example does have a clause which states: Players may withdraw a maximum of £5,000/£25,000/£100,000 per day/week/month. At its sole discretion, the Company may increase these limits at an individual player basis. Whether management will increase the amount for Hilton is unclear, but if not, it will mean that they could take a tedious 3 years to payout the full sum whereas William Hill Casino Club will payout the entire amount in one shot.

And with Playtech’s Progressive Jackpot machines all surpassing the £1 million mark of late, including Monty Python’s Spamalot at £1.8 million, Jackpot Giant at £1.6 million and Funky Fruits at £1.1 million you definitely want to be playing somewhere that will give you your money all at once should you be the next lucky millionaire.

Casino Tropez Progressive Jackpot Pool Passes $9 Million Mark

Casino Tropez Jackpot Slots
One of the most well-known and popular Playtech powered online casinos, Casino Tropez has been in operation since the early years of the online casino industry. It is always one of the first casinos to receive Playtech’s latest new games releases and also offers players a number of on-going casino bonuses and promotions.

In addition to its stellar reputation and player offering, Casino Tropez also currently offers progressive jackpot fans a massive offering with a pool that has recently passed the $9 million mark. Two thirds of this massive total is made up by four popular online slots as follows:

The Gladiator Jackpot Slot with a current jackpot total of $2.3 million and climbing is not won in the traditional manner where symbols line up, but rather through a bonus game triggered by 3 wild symbols appearing on reels 2,3 and 4 simultaneously in the base game. The bonus screen offers a selection of 9 helmets made of either gold, silver or bronze and the values of each helmet comprise the total bonus. If however, the helmets are all gold, then the Gladiator Jackpot is hit and Casino Tropez’s latest millionaire is announced.

Next in the line-up is the Beach Life progressive jackpot slot whose total currently stands at an incredible $2.2 million. This jackpot has paid out many times over the years with the highest jackpot win at over $8 million in February of 2012! To be in line to win, you must wager on all 20 paylines and hit five wild sun symbols on line 20.

The ever popular Gold Rally progressive slot takes third place with a current jackpot of $840k after being won recently and reset. The total climbs each day and to win on this unique slot, you’ll have to the scale symbol appear in all nine spots of its 3×3 grid.

The Monty Python Spamalot progressive is another slot at the $800k mark – and this one is a challenge! Probably one of the most exciting, but also most difficult slots to win on, you will have to trigger the free spins round and then collect the Jackpot Game symbol which appears on reel 3 five times before you are given entrance into the Holy Grail Jackpot game. This game is then comprised of 6 levels where you are required to make winning choices to advance through the levels. If you reach the sixth level and make the correct pick you will win one of two progressive jackpots namely, the Holy Grail Jackpot or the Slightly Less Holy Grail Jackpot.

With so much money up for grabs there has never been a better time to play progressive jackpot slots at Casino Tropez!
