Online gaming software supplier Microgaming has paid out its biggest ever mobile jackpot to a player on Fortune Lounge’s

The Royal Vegas player, referred to only as Mark A, won the jackpot via Microgaming’s Mega Moolah progressive slot game last week.

He will receive around €5.4m, receiving a single cash payout in full rather than an annuity.

“We’ve been watching the progressive ticker grow substantially over the last few weeks; anticipation was building as to when it was going to strike,” said John Quinn, head of casino at Microgaming. “Once again the jackpot was hit via a mobile device; it really is a sign of today’s industry and how prevalent mobile is.

“Congratulations to Mark A on becoming one of the biggest jackpot winners in Microgaming’s history.”

A spokesperson for Royal Vegas confirmed that the winner had only been a player on the Malta-licensed site for 7 days.

“One of our senior VIP executive hosts had the pleasure of phoning Mark to confirm the win and to congratulate him; to say he was elated is an understatement,” said the spokesperson. “Everyone here at Royal Vegas would like to congratulate Mark on this mammoth and historic win.”
