Isle of Man-based gaming software supplier Microgaming has paid out a record mobile jackpot of more than €8.0m to a Tipico player through its Mega Moolah progressive slot game.

The unnamed player won €8,012,153 last week from a €6.25 stake on Tipico, beating Microgaming’s previous record mobile payout of €7,968,311 in August last year.

The Tipico win follows another multi-million Euro jackpot payout in March when a Zodiac Casino player won €6.7m through the same progressive slot game.

"We are delighted that one of our players won this jackpot with a stake of €6.25, which is the biggest win in our online casino history, and the biggest mobile jackpot payout ever,” said Marlon van der Goes, Tipico’s chief commercial officer. “The Mega Moolah games are very popular and this jackpot win is a great success story for the Tipico casino offer."

David Reynolds, games publisher at Microgaming, added: "It’s incredible to think in just over a month the mega jackpot climbed from €4.3m (as at March 21st) to €8m (as at April 25th). To see our own record for the largest ever mobile jackpot payout break is fantastic - we’d like to congratulate the Tipico player on their life-changing win."
