Mega Moolah’s eye-watering jackpot was last awarded in the December of 2019, meaning that the latest win has ended the longest-ever time period between payouts. Usually the slot pays out with impressive regularity and was activated five times between the September and December of 2019.
The latest Canadian Dollar win equates to around 9 million British Pounds or 10.8 million Euros, making it the fourth-largest Mega Moolah prize of all time. The record for the biggest single payday is €18,915,872.81, while a 2015 reward of €17,879,645.12 is what earned the slot its first Guinness World Record®.
Statistically speaking, it’s no real surprise that the latest recipient of this progressive jackpot was playing at a Canadian online casino. 19 winners have claimed their prize in Canadian Dollars to date, while 14, 9, 8, 4 and 2 players have cashed out in Euros, British Pounds, US Dollars, New Zealand Dollars, Australian Dollars and South African Rands respectively.
Overall, more than CA$134 million has gone to Mega Moolah winners, almost double the amount of the next currency on the list – €69.6 million. In addition, of the 8 jackpots that have exceeded the 10 million mark, 4 of them have been in Canadian Dollars. Canucks’ longstanding lucky streak with this 5-reel, 3-row online slots game certainly seems to be legendary.
As well as its life-changing progressive jackpots, Mega Moolah offers players the opportunity to claim sizable non-progressive rewards too. The top payout in the base game is 10,000x the total stake, so even if the progressive jackpot isn’t triggered, you could be richly rewarded.
As an added plus, Scatter Symbols trigger a bonus round of 15 free spins whenever 3,4 or 5 of the icon lands anywhere on the reels at the same time. All takings in the bonus round are multiplied by 3, for even greater payouts.
One of the reasons Mega Moolah is so successful is because of its innovative game mechanics. The progressive jackpot is triggered at random, but rather than simply getting the prize immediately, slots players are taken to a Wheel of Fortune side game.
Here, they must spin a colourful wheel to determine whether they will get the Mini, Minor, Major or Mega payout. The Mega jackpot is the big one that seeds at 1 million and grows from there, and Canadian players love the level of engagement delivered as they spin the wheel and wait to see the result.
