While playing at Spin Palace casino approximately one week before the announcement was made about the new games, Microgaming also announced that one lucky player had netted himself an incredible €2,384,388.87 while playing on the desktop version of a progressive jackpot pokie called Mega Moolah.

The lucky winner, known as Jorge S., is a European Player who has joined an elite club of millionaires which this same slot has managed to create over the past few years. Mega Moolah first arrived in casinos back in 2006 and since it arrived it has paid out millions in jackpot prizes. “Is this for real, did I win? I can't believe it, how can it happen like this?,” said the lucky winner when speaking down the phone to Spin Palace Casino representatives.

A spokesperson for the casino said, “As a regular player on Spin Palace Casino, we are overjoyed that Jorge S has hit the jackpot and won such an enormous amount! A big congratulations to him on behalf of the entire team at Spin Palace.” One of the most famous winners was a player known as G.L. He was playing on his mobile phone at Spin Palace Mobile Casino when he won the largest prize ever to be paid out on mobile. He won a record-breaking £3,744,513.08 and this huge win has not been beaten to this day (on mobile any way).

Roger Raatgever, the Microgaming CEO, said, “It is always very exciting when a progressive jackpot gets hit - not only for the player, but for the operator and the whole team at Microgaming too! What makes it even more rewarding is that the player will receive a single cash payout in full rather than an annuity, so Jorge has become an instant millionaire.”
