Swedish Lucky Online Casino goer wins €14.2 million record Mega Moolah jackpot.
For individual players, winning an online slot machine jackpot is the ultimate goal. But when it comes to iGaming news headlines, they happen all the time. Small jackpots are incredibly common, happening countless times a day at online casino all over the world. Big jackpots – I don’t just mean big, but life changing multi-million dollar jackpots – aren’t as common, but they do occur at least once every month or two.
What we don’t hear very often is that a progressive slot has paid out such a high reward, that it’s set a new all-time record. That’s what happened this week for one very “lucky” member of Lucky Casino, when the Mega Moolah paid out the highest online progressive to any Swedish player.
Swedish Lucky Online Casino Goer Wins €14.2M Record Mega Moolah Jackpot
The fateful strike took place on Monday, August 17, when a Swedish player was spinning the reels of the famous Mega Moolah progressive slot machine. Microgaming’s iconic ‘Millionaire Maker’ triggered its random wheel bonus game, spinning its way to an ultimate ‘Mega Jackpot’ payout of €14,239,532.84, or about 147 million in Swedish Krona (SEK).
This epic win marks the fourth largest jackpot payout in Mega Moolah’s immensely lucrative history, and the absolute largest online slots progressive ever paid to a Swedish online casino player. The previous progressive jackpot record of SEK 80 million was awarded in 2015. Other major jackpots for Swedes included an SEK 74 million strike in 2014, SEK 67 million jackpot in 2012, and SEK 58 million payout in 2017.
“Lucky” Winner Always Believed in the Dream
The lucky winner of this colossal jackpot prize has chosen to remain anonymous. However, the player did leave behind this inspirational comment:
“Somewhere deep down I probably believed in the dream all along, but when I won the Jackpot, I thought it was a joke. It was only when Lucky Casino called me that I realised that my life will suddenly be different.
“It is impossible to put into words how happy I am,” the player said when asked to explain the emotional euphoria that must be coursing through their veins. “I think it will take a while before I understand how much money I have won.”
A Word From Microgaming & Glitnor Group, Owner of Lucky Casino
Microgaming Director of Games, Andrew Booth, was elated by the news, and quick to congratulate both the new-found multi-millionaire and online casino operator on the historic win.
“Congratulations to Lucky Casino and their player on the tremendous win through Microgaming’s Mega Moolah. The win marks the largest euro jackpot win in Sweden through our progressive jackpot network,” said Booth.
“Mega Moolah continues to be a favorite among players worldwide, and we are thrilled to add even more progressive games to the jackpot and network this year”, he concluded.
Lucky Online Casino Director, Martin Sidenvall, was also eager to congratulate their latest and largest winner of all time.
“For everyone at Lucky Casino, this is a historic moment,” he said. “To be able to call our lucky winner and announce that the fourth largest online jackpot winning ever awarded, and the single biggest jackpot ever won in Sweden at an online casino, has gone to one of our customers in Sweden, is something we could only dream of.”
