When Microgaming released the first-ever Mega Moolah progressive jackpot game way back in 2006, nobody could have foreseen that it would go on to become one of the biggest and best-loved titles in online slot history. Additional titles in what is now a whole series of Mega Moolah games have always been well-received, and this week the company will release its latest offering, Fortunium Gold: Mega Moolah.
Mega Moolah excitement with a steampunk theme
Fortunium Gold: Mega Moolah is based on the original Fortunium slot that was released by Stormcraft Studios in 2018. For those of you who haven't played that earlier title, Fortunium brought the world of steampunk to the online slot world in great style, combining great graphics and an engaging narrative with a stack of satisfying features.
This new addition to the Mega Moolah series retains the flavour of the original Fortunium game and has the same five-reel format with 40 pay lines. It also boasts the Mystery Reels, Mystery Symbols and Win Booster features, which made the first steampunk adventure so exciting. However, Fortunium Gold: Mega Moolah also gives players the chance to win one of four progressive jackpots, known as the Mini, Minor, Major and Mega.
What's so Special about Mega Moolah Jackpots?
Anyone who asks this question has clearly been living in a cave for the last fourteen years, because Mega Moolah created the world's first mobile slot millionaire in 2013 and has since become famous for delivering the biggest online slot jackpot payouts in the world.
That statement isn't hype, it's an objective fact, and one that has been verified by the Guinness World Records organization. Back in 2015, a British online slot player, Jon Heywood, won a Mega jackpot worth €17,880,900 from a bet of just 25p, giving Microgaming the world record for the 'Largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game.' Then, in September 2018, an anonymous player in Sweden won the even bigger payout of €18,915,872 from the convenience of his Android device, beating the previous record by over €1,000,000.
Even when it isn't breaking records, the Mega Moolah series of games changes lives on a surprisingly frequent basis, and just last month, a player in Sweden won the mouth-watering sum of €14,239,532.
Over 18 million progressive jackpots have been won by Mega Millions players since the launch of the original game in 2006, and more than 13,000 of those were Mega jackpots worth seven or eight figures. In total, Microgaming's progressive jackpot network has paid out more than €1.25 billion in prizes, and every day sees that figure soar to even greater heights.
Will you be the next Big Winner?
With all of this in mind, it isn't hard to see why players across Canada and around the world are getting excited about the arrival of Fortunium Gold: Mega Moolah. Play at LeoVegas Casino from Tuesday 22 September, and the next big winner could be you!
