Canadian Online Casino Player Becomes Multi-Millionaire

The best news from Canada online casinos in April was the hitting of the popular Microgaming progressive jackpot Mega Moolah by a Canadian player. Mark A was playing on his mobile phone when he went into the randomly triggered bonus round and then got the band of largest of the jackpot tiers against the pointer. He took home a life-changing CA$7,561,773, reportedly the largest progressive jackpot ever paid out to a mobile casino player.

Mark was playing at the mobile casino of Royal Vegas, which is a Fortune Lounge brand. Royal Vegas is licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority and is certified as safe and fair by the independent assessor eCOGRA. A spokesperson for the Canadian online casino said “Mark A had only been a player with us for 7 days; I don’t think you could ask for a better start to playing at Royal Vegas!” As is the practice at Royal Vegas, one of the senior VIP executive hosts contacted Mark to confirm the big win and to congratulate him. Mark has been in seventh heaven since then. Microgaming online casinos pay for progressive jackpots with a single payment rather than an annuity. This has made Mark an instant millionaire several times over. He has joined an exclusive club of Microgaming millionaires. The software provider has paid out more than CA$647 million since its first progressive jackpot slot machine rolled out at online casinos.

Microgaming’s head of Casino, John Quinn, also released a statement. He said, “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!” He pointed out that the fact that the jackpot was once again hit on a mobile device is a sign of how mobile gaming has penetrated today’s online casino industry.

Mega Moolah is available to players all over the world and Mark inadvertently did them all a favour. The jackpot is paid out in the currency the player is wagering in. Therefore Mark was paid in Canadian dollars. If a British player had hit the jackpot then the 7.5 million payment would have to be made in pounds sterling. Microgaming saved a huge amount on this, but they immediately put it back in the jackpot. The jackpot which usually resets to 1 million credits, restarted this time at over 3 million credits. It is already at over 4.75 million credits and waiting to be hit.
