Online Jackpot Game Ticks Past $6 Million

10 April, 2009,  Milton Shaw, Staff writer

Mega Moolah, Microgaming's big jackpot progressive slot game has just ticket past the $6 million mark, meaning the next winner will easily become the  biggest ever online casino jackpot winner.  If won at one of MIicrogaming's UK casinos like Ladbrokes , the amount will be over 6 million pound!

Progressive jackpot games are very popular at online casinos as they offer players the chance to win big.  They are games that are linked across a large number of casinos, with all player payments towards that game contributing to the linked jackpot.  The bigger the casino network and the more players playing, the quicker the jackpot grows.

And they don't get much bigger than Microgaming, with some 200 licensee casinos and 15 progressive games at present.

All major casino platforms/casino group offer progressive games.   And each group has its marquee game.  For Microgaming, it's Mega Moolah, which went off last year and made one lucky player over $5.5 million richer. 

But the winner of this whopping jackpot will not be an American.  Since the passing of anti online gambling legislation back in 2006, Microgaming casinos have shut their doors to US players.

Americans will have to make do with jackpot games at casinos like Cherry Red Casino that still accept US player bets and offer RTG progressives that hit the $1 million mark regularly.
