We’ve all dreamed of it but very few of us will actually go on to win the Mega Moolah jackpot, but the progressive slot is carving out quite the reputation. Ever since the hit game produced its first-ever millionaire in 2008, thousands of players from across the world have tried their luck at landing the big pay-out. Some have scooped some eye-watering figures over the years and it’s the frequent wins that has seen the interest in Mega Moolah soar.
Take 2018 for example, Mega Moolah paid out over £22.8 million in jackpot prizes which equates to £1.9 million paid out each month. This year, two lucky winners have accumulated £12.4 million from playing the Microgaming hit and it would be foolish to bet against another huge winner before too long.

Rawiri Pou – £10.1 million NZD
The fourth-largest recorded win for Mega Moolah was set in 2016, when a fast food worker from New Zealand collected just over £10 million. Rawiri Pou was the lucky recipient of the huge sum, and naturally, he was shocked and delighted with the outcome: “I still can’t believe this is real. I’ve been in shock since I won and it is literally going to change my life. There is so much my family and I can do with this money and it couldn’t have come at a better time. We are so overwhelmed and happy.”
Nick work, Rawiri. At least he won’t be flipping burgers anymore!
Marcus G – CA$11.6 million
Just four months after Rawiri Pou’s jackpot win, Marcus G went one better after he scooped CA$11.6 million. The Canadian was playing Mega Moolah at the Yako Casino when his life changed forever: “Wow thank you so much! This is obviously life changing! I cannot believe it! I will definitely be buying a nice big house and a vacation cottage! And taking my entire family on a first-class trip to Africa! This will mean great Christmas presents for everyone!”
Byeveryonedoes he mean us as well?
Jon Heywood – £13.2 million
Our UK-based readers will more than likely be aware of Jon Heywood’s monster win in October 2015, and what makes his win all the more sweeter is that he won from a 25p stake. Jon had barely opened his betting account before the single spin ensured the £13.2 million jackpot was his. Afterwards, Jon couldn’t believe his luck (really?): “It’s all so surreal and I can’t come to terms with it just yet. I just keep staring at my screen and seeing this huge number in my casino account.”
Anonymous – £14.4 million
Although it hasn’t been recognised in the Guinness World Records yet, an anonymous player from Canada is the proud recipient of Mega Moolah’s largest ever pay-out. The CA$20,059,287 translates to £14.4 million in Pound Sterling, and was won in January 2019. The winner was playing an online version via Zodiac Casino on their android phone. At the time of writing, it’s the 68thmillionaire Mega Moolah has produced and it would take a brave punter to back against 70 being made before the year is out.
