Kahnawake-licensed operator Zodiac Casino has paid out a record mobile jackpot prize of nearly €8m to a player on Microgaming’s progressive slot Mega Moolah.

The lucky player, named only as D.P, won the €7,968,311 prize on Sunday August 28th via a mobile version of the popular jackpot game.

“With mobile gaming now accounting for almost half of all gameplay, it’s no surprise that we are seeing mega wins on this platform,” said John Quinn, head of casino at Microgaming. “We are extremely proud to have the longest-standing and biggest progressive jackpot network in the market, which also holds a Guinness World Records title.

“To now claim the largest ever mobile jackpot win is very pleasing. On behalf of everyone at Microgaming, congratulations to D.P on this mammoth mobile win.”

The previous largest pay-out on Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network was in June earlier this year, when a Casinoland.com player in New Zealand won €6,355,464.

“We are absolutely ecstatic to welcome our latest multimillionaire ‘D.P’ to our Millionaire Winners Club, bringing our total count of instant millionaires to six across our member casinos,” said Emma Hall, promotions manager at ZodiacCasino.com, which is one of several brands operated by Casino Rewards.

“D.P claimed our fantastic sign-up offer at ZodiacCasino.com, offering all new players 80 chances to become a millionaire for just €1 and then went on to trigger the jackpot off a €1 bet.

“The best news for everyone else out there is that the mega jackpot is already back up above €5m and could be won at any moment by a ZodiacCasino.com player.”
