Ten Most Recent Mega Moolah Jackpots for Canadians

Mega Moolah is the most popular game Microgaming has ever developed. The African safari theme is cool, and the graphics are colorful, but the jackpots are the biggest draw for most players.

The progressive jackpot slot is seeded at €1 million but most often surpasses $2 million before it pays out. And while there are smaller jackpots that pay all the time, the Mega jackpot pays the life-changing money.

Recent Numbers

Mega Moolah is also the most transparent game in the online casino world, as it has its own website and reports all Mega jackpot wins for the primary game, as well as all of its sister games. There is Major Millions, King Cashalot, Atlantean Treasures, and the latest game called Wheel of Wishes.

In 2019, the Mega jackpot paid out 12 times and totaled more than $79 million.

The largest payout ever by Mega Moolah happened last year as well. It paid on January 3, 2019 to a Canadian player, and the amount was $20,059,287.27. It happened on Zodiac Casino, and the winner wanted to remain private, but it remains the top payout ever on Mega Moolah.

Canadians Hitting Jackpots

The latest winner hit the Mega Moolah jackpot on April 5, 2020 for nearly $17 million. And it happened to a Canadian player on the Jackpot City online casino.

With that as the first one, let’s take a look at the last 10 Mega Moolah jackpots paid to Canadians.

  1. April 5, 2020: $16,496,347.95

This just happened last weekend!

The latest Mega Moolah payout was the third largest ever from the popular online slot game since it launched in 2007. And it happened on our top-ranked Canadian online casino – Jackpot City. This casino is also highly recommended by Microgaming.

Microgaming did not release the name of the player, as that person may choose to remain anonymous, but the company did say that the winnings will be paid in one lump sum of cash.

In Euros, the win was calculated as €10,735,716.84. This pushes the total paid thus far in 2020 past the €26 million mark. And to date, the Microgaming progressive jackpot network has now paid out more than €1.1 billion.

  1. September 9, 2019: $4,443,185.39

The last payout before the aforementioned monster jackpot was in September of last year. Microgaming didn’t publicize any information about the winner except that he or she played in the Canadian dollar currency.

  1. September 5, 2019: $4,746,748.54

This Canadian jackpot hit at the Yukon Gold mobile casino, which proved that mobile online casinos are no less likely to score than traditional access.

  1. August 10, 2019: $5,954,437.97

This was another jackpot hit on Jackpot City. The player sat down for a 94-minute gambling session, but he or she didn’t play the max bet the entire time. In truth, he or she placed just 25 bets of $5 each, and the last one won it.

  1. May 4, 2019: $8,162,217.05

Again, this win happened on Jackpot City, an aptly-named casino site quite popular with Canadian players and the one that just hit this month.

  1. March 6, 2019: $3,308,063.71

This jackpot hit just 38 hours after the last one. It goes to show how fast a jackpot can grow, and it proves that there is no required amount of time for a jackpot to grow before it hits.

  1. January 3, 2019: $20,059,287.27

Officially the largest jackpot ever paid by Mega Moolah, it didn’t register as a Guinness World Record because the currency was in the Canadian dollar, not in the Euro or British Pound. Even so, it remains the largest in the game’s history thus far.

  1. February 27, 2018: $7,453,168.03

This was the second jackpot of 2018 and also went to a Canadian. It wasn’t the first time that Canadians won back-to-back jackpots, though, because it happened a year earlier in 2017.

  1. January 14, 2018: $3,688,145.24

The first jackpot of 2018 went to a Canadian player on Zodiac Casino. The player didn’t want to be identified at the time but said they could not believe what happened and had to “double-check the screen and call customer support” to make sure it was real.

  1. November 15, 2017: $1,413,537.73

This was the eleventh Mega jackpot hit in 2018. She played at Grand Mondial online casino, just having joined and set up a new account that very day. In fact, it was the first time the woman known as K.T. ever played any online slot games.

She told Microgaming that she was a bundle of excitement after her win. “This is unreal!” she said. “I had to keep checking and call my sister! There has been a lot of laughing and crying! The first thing that she said was that I really deserve this!”
