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