Mega Moolah Makes Another Millionaire from a £5 Stake

For most of us January is a miserable month. Our wallets our empty, the weather is cold, Christmas is a fading memory and we’re desperately trying to stick to improbable resolutions.

It’s not easy to lift the gloom but an online casino win in excess of €6 million would probably do the trick. For lucky player, this version of January has become reality after he scooped the first jackpot of the year on MicroGaming’s Mega Moolah.

The mystery winner is just the latest in a long line of millionaires who owe their fortune to the record-breaking jackpot slot.

Player Wins €6,078,249.33 from £5 Deposit

Although the player’s identity hasn’t been revealed, we do know that he is male and was playing at Captain Cook’s online casino.

This brand has been making quite the splash of late thanks to its incredible welcome bonus. It provides all new players with 100 free spins on Mega Moolah in exchange for a humble £5/€5 deposit.

The lucky jackpot winner was using his free spins when he landed the big prize, which means he spent a fiver only to receive his stake back 1.3 million times over. Not bad for five minutes’ work!

Mega Moolah Makes Millionaires

Only NetEnt’s Mega Fortune can rival Mega Moolah for millionaire-making potential. As the latest recipient of a 7 figure pay out pops the champagne, it’s worth remembering that this slot has brought instant wealth to scores of people over the years.

Like other progressive jackpots games, every bet contributes towards to the total prize pot. In other word, players collaborate to ensure the jackpot amount grows and grows until it eventually blows. The big prize has weighed in at over €1 million the last 20 time that it’s been toppled. Mega Moolah is the Big Daddy of jackpot slots.

Man Wins €17 Million from a €0.30 Stake

Indeed, Mega Moolah holds the world record for the highest single online casino win in history. It set the landmark when British soldier Jon Heywood won an eye-watering £13.2 million back in October 2015. That translated to €17,879,465 at the time and the story of how he did it is even more remarkable.

Mr Heywood deposited just £30 at Betway Casino and began staking it in 25p (€0.30) chunks on Mega Moolah. It took him just 7 minutes to strike gold and become an instant millionaire. The win came a difficult time for the Afghanistan veteran, whose Dad was ill. He vowed to use the cash to pay for his father’s medical treatment.

Despite dozens of multi-million pound wins since, the 27-year-old Cheshire resident’s win is yet to be topped.

100 Chances to Become a Millionaire for just £5

Captain Cook’s Casino has been running its Mega Moolah welcome bonus promotion for several months. Casino Rewards – the company that operates the brand – has made five millionaires in that time.

Promotions Manager Emma Hall said “Our lucky novice player ‘N.C.’ became an instant millionaire after taking up Captain Cooks Casino’s signup offer for all new customers, offering 100 chances to become a millionaire for just £5!

What also makes this win incredible is that ‘N.C.’ has become the 7th member of the Casino Rewards Millionaire Club off a 50 cent bet.”

What Are Your Chances of Winning the Mega Moolah Jackpot?

There’s no scientific answer to this question, of course. The best response we can provide is that you have as good as chance as anyone else! Previous winners always speak of their shock and how they never dreamed it would happen to them. But you have to be in it to win it.

So many people play Mega Moolah and that’s ensured that the jackpot amount is already back up to more than £5 million by early February.

Statistics show that it pays out every 59 days on average. Like a volcano, you never know when it’s going to blow though. And that’s what makes Mega Moolah so exciting.

Where Can You Play Mega Moolah?

You can play Mega Moolah at a host of different online casinos. The likes of Mr Green and PlayFrank welcome bonus make it a compelling choice. 777 Casino is one of the UK's most popular sites for casino promotions and is presently offering 100 FREE SPINS at PlayFrank and Mr Green Casinos.
