Mega Moolah Pays Out £10.6 Million Jackpot

The first progressive jackpot of 2022 falls as the Mega Moolah Pays Out £ million to one seriously lucky punter! (Image from

It has been a quiet time on the progressive jackpot front in recent months. The last time we had a win of note was on the 16th of November in 2021. That win of £5,618,044, which is slightly above the average payout of Microgaming’s Mega Moolah progressive jackpot network, came when one lucky punter spun the reels at the right time on the original Mega Moolah video slot.

However, since then there have been no winners on any of the biggest progressive networks from Microgaming, Playtech, and NetEnt. That is, until now! If you know how progressive slots work, they grow as players play, and the Mega Moolah has been growing steadily since that last win and it grew to £6,078,876 before one player last week scooped the lot!

Microgaming has yet to release the full details of that win, so we do not know what slot it came on or which online casino it happened at. All we know is that somebody somewhere is now a millionaire 6 times over! That is an enormous boost to somebody’s bankroll, though I suspect a win of that multitude will be spent on more than just playing online slots and live casino games!

The amazing thing about this win is that the Mega Moolah jackpot has already grown to over £5 million again within a week! Microgaming seeds this jackpot with £1 mill whenever the jackpot is won. So that means punters have already added £4 million on top!

In April last year, the Mega Moolah paid out a record-breaking €19,430,723.60 via the Absolootly Mad Mega Moolah progressive jackpot slot. Will 2022 bring such eye-watering jackpots? Well, this £6,078,876 is far from a bad start.

Worth the Wait!

The Mega Moolah progressive jackpot typically pays every 45 days on average, but this time we had to wait close to double that length of time. However, the longer it takes, the bigger the win, so we doubt the winner is complaining one little.

It is not just the Mega Moolah that has been quiet, as Microgaming’s WowPot has gone 172 days since somebody last took down the jackpot. Currently sitting at £7,824,701, this jackpot usually pays out every 66 days on average. We can say the same about all the other notable jackpots. NetEnt’s jackpots on Arabian Nights, Hall of Gods, and Mega Fortune sit at above €2 million and have not paid out in a very long time. Playtech’s Jackpot Giant slot also has a €6m+ jackpot waiting for somebody to claim!

The Mega Moolah jackpot paid out 6 times in 2021, so we can expect similar this time around. As for the WowPot, this paid out 3 times in total, once for a whopping £15,183,085!
