Canadian Online Casino Player Hits Mega Moolah

November 21, 2016

The Mega Progressive jackpot of Mega Moolah crossed the 11-million barrier in October. Soon after that it was hit by a Canadian online casino player for a whopping CA$11,633,898.44. Marcus Goodwin will never forget November 5. Guy Fawkes celebrations are not that popular in Canada, but Marcus certainly had fireworks going in his heart.

The Canadian winner immediately captured his thoughts on video that was uploaded on You Tube. With his pet dog in his arms, Marcus said that he was so excited that his heart was still pounding a day after the win. He had joined his online casino only last July and played Mega Moolah only on a rainy day. This just proves the adage that one spin is sufficient to win millions. Goodwin also gave an interview to his online casino in which he said, “This is obviously life-changing! I can't believe it! I will definitely be buying a nice big house and a vacation cottage. And taking my entire family on a first class trip to Africa! This will mean great Christmas presents for everyone!”

After this hit, the Mega Progressive ticker of Mega Moolah was reduced by the GBP equivalent of the win as is the practice of Microgaming to just over 5 million. In less than ten days from the hit, Mega Progressive struck again. The amount won was 5,633,226 credits. Other details like currency, player name or online casino have not yet been revealed. Today the progressive jackpot is ticking at 2.7 million.

Marcus Goodwin is the biggest Canadian winner on Mega Moolah, but not the first one. In April 2015, a player from Royal Vegas online casino hit CA$7,565,091.94 on the progressive jackpot. He was playing the slot game on his mobile device. It is coincidental that he was named Mark. This could be a good omen for all Canadian online casino players named Mark or Marc or Marcus. Since the launch of the game, the Mega Progressive has hit 30 times and has paid over 150 million credits. The biggest win was for 13.2 million credits in October 2015. The winner got this sum in British pounds, making it the largest online progressive jackpot win ever in equivalent currency.

Mega Moolah, the African Safari themed slot game, was the first to launch with this progressive jackpot. Since then four other video slots have been added to the network. The titles are Isis, Summertime, 5 Reel Drive and The Dark Knight.
