Biggest Mega Moolah Ever Nears $11 Million
IT was bound to happen. With the growing popularity of the best progressive pokies games in the world, the fact that the Mega Moolah Jackpot is quickly headed to the $11 million mark isn’t shocking. It’s massive, but we knew it would happen eventually.
Someone, somewhere, is about to get rich, and we’re hoping it will be an Aussie this time. As we’ve previously reported, Mega Moolah winners have come from all over the globe, but an Australian has yet to hit the big prize.
The previous record for the Mega Moolah was back in April when a lucky player hit the progressive for AUD $7.66 million. That player hit the record jackpot while playing at AG’s highest rated online casino, Royal Vegas.
How does the Mega Moolah jackpot get so large?
The main reason is because it’s the biggest progressive on the Microgaming Network, the largest online casino gaming software provider in the world. This software provider serves hundreds of online casinos, meaning this progressive is played by tens of thousands of players every day. So, it doesn’t take long for the jackpot to surpass the multi-million dollar mark.
What is most surprising is that it has gone this long since it was last hit. Many would say the jackpot is “due” to hit at some point soon, especially because this huge prize draws the attention of pokies players all over the world. So, it’s being played more now than ever.
How high will the jackpot get? Nobody knows. On the one hand, the bigger the prize gets, the sooner it should get hit – because more & more players are getting in on the action. At the same time, this huge influx of players means that the prize is growing at a faster rate than ever. It is entirely possible we could see the prize surpass $13m, $14m, or even $15m.
Other progressive jackpots
At the time I write this post, the King Cashalot progressive is over $593,000 and Major Millions is over $381,000. Tunzamunni is over $215,000 as well, and each of those progressives can be won with a smaller stake than the Mega Millions. So, if you’re working with a smaller budget but looking for big potential, these are good options as well.
