January Jackpot From Mega Moolah


23 Jan 2017

On 16th January the Mega Moolah jackpot was won once again and this time it was at Captain Cooks Casino, part of the Casino Rewards program.

This lucky player is the seventh from the Casino Rewards set of sites to hit the big money on the Mega Moolah game from Microgaming and his win was an impressive €6,078,249.33 (approximately £5,527,120,45).

Mega Moolah Winning Combination

The win happened when player N.C logged into Captain Cooks Casino via his mobile device on Monday 16th January. The win was generated from just a €0.50 spin and created an overnight millionaire.

Speaking of the win, this new millionaire said

I was at a bit of a loose end so opened up Captain Cooks Casino on my mobile. I’ve always had a few spins on Mega Moolah and hoped that I’d get all the way to the middle on the bonus wheel but have never won more than the Minor progressive jackpot.

When the pointer stopped on the lion’s paw print, I had to double check! Even now I’m still pinching myself. I can’t believe I am now a millionaire.

When pressed as to what the money would be spent on, N.C is reported as saying

I know it sounds quite clichéd but I’ll be treating my family and friends. I’ve got my eye on a new car and I’ll be sensible and pay off my mortgage. After that, who knows!

Thank you Captain Cooks Casino and Microgaming.
