Both Microgaming and Net Entertainment (NetEnt) recently announced details about two lucky players who have managed to win more than €3.6 million between them. One of the lucky winners was playing at Spin Palace Mobile Casino and the other one was playing at a Finnish online casino called Kolikkopelit.com Casino.
Winning just over €1.08 million was player a female gamer known only as Rachael. She was playing from her mobile device at Spin Palace Mobile Casino on a progressive jackpot slot mega Moolah when she hit the Mega Progressive Jackpot.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled for Rachael,” said Debbie Taylor, the current Spin Palace Casino Manager. Taylor then added, “We hope that this remarkable experience will help start her new year with a bang. With the festive season underway, it is undoubtedly clear that this jackpot win couldn’t have come at a more opportune time.”
These comments came directly from the Microgaming website. Microgaming’s Head of Product Channels, Neill Whyte also said, “Two mega mobile jackpot wins on our HTML5 client in just four months truly indicates the growth of mobile gaming. So far this year, Mega Moolah has paid out over €171 million on mobile devices; that’s an astonishing amount!”
He continued, “No doubt this number will increase year-on-year as more and more players look to play their favourite games on their mobile and tablet devices.” These comments also came from the Microgaming website.
As noted by Microgaming’s Neill Whyte, Spin Palace Mobile Casino is certainly no stranger to big wins. In September 2013, this exact same slot, Mega Moolah, paid out a world-record breaking jackpot prize worth more than £3.7 million to a lucky UK player known as Gabriel L. This was (and still is) the largest ever MOBILE jackpot win in the history of mobile slot machines.
The other notable winner was playing on a NetEnt slot machine called Mega Fortune when he won a staggering €2.6 million on December 13th 2013. “We congratulate the lucky Mega Fortune jackpot winner and Kolikkopelit.com for this life-changing win. Net Entertainment offers the very best progressive jackpot slots in the market, and the high liquidity we see through these games supports for a swift turnaround of multimillion euro pay-outs,” said NetEnt’s President and COO, Per Eriksson.
Eriksson then added, “I am sure we will be able to congratulate yet another millionaire in the near future.” Just like the Mega Moolah mobile slot from Microgaming, NetEnt’s desktop version of Mega Fortune has also found its way into the Guinness World Record book.
In January 2013 the Mega Fortune online slot awarded the largest progressive jackpot ever to be paid out to an online casino player. The lucky player, who was also from Finland, won a truly life-changing €17.8 million. In 2013 alone, Mega Fortune has paid out more than €43.6 million and the year isn’t over yet.
