care until something terrific happens - like somebody winning the biggest jackpot by Microgaming. It takes the luckiest of the lucky to set a MegaMoolah record for the highest progressive jackpot at €19.4 million.

Mega Moolah is a distinguished slot game bringing four progressive jackpots into focus: Mini Minor Major and Mega. The bet size of Mega jackpot opens at €1 million and raises with each bet on the game across the network of participating casinos. It's random how the jackpot is triggered where any player can win regardless of the bet size or the game variant.

Microgaming's highest jackpot win with Absolootly Mad Mega Moolah

Microgaming has been around since 1994 but it took them until 2021 when a Belgium gamer set a record-breaking win with a staggering €19430723.60. Remember this game - Absolootly Mad Mega Moolah. Inspired by Alice in Wonderland, it's a game that was exclusively developed for Microgaming in 2020 by Triple Edge Studios that made the world-record win happen. Since then it has registered over 500,000 wins with jackpot prizes totalling over €46 million.

The game features a 5x3 reel layout with 243 routes to win. It also has a Rolling Reels mechanic that eliminates winning symbols and replaces them with fresh ones. This gives more likelihood for multiple back-to-back wins. It also has a Multiplier Trail that increases the multiplier value for each successive Rolling Reel win. The free spins are triggered by collecting three or more golden coins on the reels which also grant access to the jackpot wheel.

The jackpot wheel is where the magic happens as it offers the chance to win one of the four progressive jackpots. The wheel features different segments representing a different jackpot each. The Mega jackpot segment is the smallest and the most elusive but also the most rewarding. The Belgian player who won the record-breaking jackpot was lucky enough to land on this segment and claim the life-changing prize.

The hype of Microgaming's progressive jackpot

Microgaming's progressive jackpot network has already paid out over 1.3 billion across all wins to date. The company's CEO John Coleman expressed his excitement over the biggest win stating that they're “absolootly” thrilled that Mega Moolah is making history again with its new record win with an impressive €19.4 million!

The win took place at Napoleon Sports & Casino on April 27, 2021. It holds the world record for the largest payout in an online slot machine. The casino's CEO Tim De Borle said "This is a historic day for Napoleon Sports and Casino. We are completely over the moon… It almost feels like our site has become 'the home of the jackpot.'"


Mega Moolah takes its stand as one of the most prominent and exciting online slot games offering players the possibility to earn millions with a single spin. With different games to choose from there is a Mega Moolah game for everyone. Take your chances and see if you have the luck in you that can make a difference!
