Mega Moolah Jackpot Has Its Second Biggest Win Of All Time
Mega Moolah is one of the best known online pokies in play these days and the secret for its success is easy to see. This game from Microgaming gives out huge wins at an impressively regular basis. As a matter of fact, its latest win that took place on the first week of November has caused another buzz in online pokie circles since it is worth a whopping $11 million.
This is the second largest win of all time from this game and it has created another round of excitement around it.
There’s no doubt that this win will bring more players for the game.
Interestingly, most people who win huge amounts of money gambling online prefer to keep their identities a secret for very obvious reasons. In fact, they give out just their first name or even a set of initials if they don’t go with the term “Anonymous”. However, the latest winner is so delighted to bag $11 million that he doesn’t wish to stay anonymous. Marcus Goodwin, the suitably named lucky winner, took a couple of weeks after the win to let his identity be known via YouTube.
Goodwin, a Canadian, is one of the many players from all over the world who play this game.
Interestingly, he was playing a promotion known as “80 Chances To Become A Millionaire” in which he could have 80 tries at the game for a mere $1.
He was playing on YakoCasino, a relatively new site that has been in business only since 2015. In fact, this is the biggest win from the casino so far. YakoCasino offers a very good selection of games from Net Entertainment, Evolution Gaming, NYX, and Play’n Go apart from Microgaming.
The winner has big plans for the future. He intends to invest in a vacation cottage and also take his family out on a number of vacations. A trip to Africa has always been on his wish list and now it seems that it will become a reality.
Mega Moolah One Of Microgaming’s Most Popular Games
Mega Moolah is a five reel pokie that has become popular on account of the insanely large wins it gives out. It has four different progressive jackpots, each of which is played with a different amount of money and seeds at a different level. This makes the game suitable for players of different budgets. As far as the biggest jackpot is concerned, it seeds at $1 million. The jackpots can become really big since the game is linked across many online casinos that cater to customers all over the world.
The largest win so far on this game has been £13.2 million won by Jon Heywood at Betway online casino.
The British veteran of the Afghan War won the huge prize on a wager of just 25p. The game has made lots of millionaires and multi-millionaires over the past decades.
Tough Times For Australian Online Pokies Players
Online poker fans from Australia are worried that they might not have the opportunity to try their hand at the big prizes at Mega Moolah and other games like it. The government is planning to review the Interactive Gambling Act and perhaps even amend it to prevent Australians from gambling at offshore betting websites. While many of these sites continue to accept players from Australia, there is a good chance that they will soon not be permitted to do so. However, the flourishing land based gambling industry in Australia stands to benefit from a restriction on online gambling. It will definitely be interesting to see what direction the gambling industry in Australia takes in the near future.
