On April 19th we reported on the astounding progressive jackpot win on the Book of Atem WowPot, where a lucky UK player took home more than €17 million. This was the biggest win of 2021, the biggest win on WowPot ever and the third biggest win ever recorded on a Microgaming slot.
Hands Off The Crown
While the Book of Atem WowPot win was a cool €17.5 million, the record for biggest Microgaming progressive jackpot was the amazing €18.9 million won on Mega Moolah back on September 28th, 2018.
On April 27th, perhaps spurred on by how close WowPot came to claiming its crown, Mega Moolah decided to up the ante and award one lucky player a new all-time high jackpot win of €19,430,723.60!
Microgaming CEO, John Coleman, said:
“We’re absolootly delighted to see Mega Moolah make history once again with its latest record-breaking win, and what an incredible win it is – €19.4 million! That’s the largest jackpot payout in an online slot of all time.”
The Belgian player, who has chosen to remain anonymous, was playing Absolootly Mad Mega Moolah at their favourite online casino when a single spin of the reels turned their comparatively tiny stake into a record-breaking multi-million Euro windfall.
Down the Rabbit Hole
The Absolootly Mad Mega Moolah progressive slot has become a real feather in the cap of Triple Edge Studios, who developed it for Microgaming, given that the previous Mega Moolah jackpot held the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest payout in an online slot machine.
When the slot was launched, Brendan Walton of Triple Edge Studios said:
“The team at Triple Edge Studios is extremely excited for the release of Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah. This new game offers an abundance of whimsical charm, stunning bespoke art and most importantly tremendous win potential,”
That “tremendous win potential” has certainly been realised, and as the new jackpot leader in town, those Guinness records will have to be updated to name that Absolootly Mad Mega Moolah as the king of slot machines.
For a slot machine only launched in May 2020, Absolootly Mad has awarded players more than 500,000 wins across all available jackpot tiers, with a total value of more than €46 million!
