The progressive jackpot video slot, Mega Moolah, also known as the millionaire-maker, has paid out C$16,496,347.95 to one lucky player at JackpotCity Casino! The player, who joined JackpotCity in November 2018, only took a couple of spins before the jackpot win hit. And with small, incremental deposits, it’s quite clear that players don’t need to make big deposits all the time in order to win big.
The Mega Moolah jackpot hits 8 figures at present (september 2015). More specific: the big win amount reaches £€ 13.5 million. This is the largest jackpot ever awarded by this online slot. The previous jackpot payout was for an amount of ca. €6.3 million ($8.6 million/£5.6 million) on May 11, 2009.
Mega Moolah is a 5reel, 25-payline online slot developed by Microgaming. The theme is all about a safari and wild animals. The lions act as wild multiplier symbols. Free spins can be won with 3 or more monkey scatter symbols.
But the slot gets really interesting when you take part in the progressive jackpot bonus game. How it works? There are 4 jackpots that can be won:
1) the mini progressive jackpot game where you can win at least £$€10;
2) the minor progressive jackpot game with a win of at least £$€100;
3) the major progressive jackpot game with a minimum payout win of at least £$€10,000; and
the mega progressive jackpot, which starts at £$€1 million.
Each time players spin the reels on the game, a portion of their bet feeds the jackpots. The progressive jackpot game is activated randomly, but the higher the bet, the more likely the game will be triggered. The jackpot game appears on a new screen, with a giant spinning wheel determining which jackpot the player will win. Of course: the more you wager, the better your chances of triggering the big one.

All Mega Moolah jackpots are paid out in the currency in which you are playing. This means: if you play in a currency that is not the one worth the most at the time (currently UK£) then, when the jackpot resets, it is only reduced by the value paid out once the exchange rate has been taken into account. I.e. if someone plays in USD and wins the $11.4 million, then the jackpot will be reduced by approximately £7.4 million, using today's exchange rates, and the new jackpot would be about $£€4 million.
