Where was the World’s Biggest Mobile Jackpot Won?

Publishing: September 7, 2016

The world’s biggest progressive jackpot ever paid out on a mobile device occurred at a Microgaming powered mobile casino towards the end of August 2016. Player D.P. won at Lucky Zodiac Mobile Casino and it comes just over a year after the last world-record-breaking mobile casino jackpot was won. This latest winner netted an incredible €7,968,311.26 which equates to approximately AU$11,810,056.91 and he or she was playing from a smartphone or tablet device.

The life-changing jackpot win occurred on the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot pokie on Sunday 28th August 2016. The Mega Jackpot was won after player D.P made it to the randomly triggered progressive jackpot bonus round. The winner got to spin the wheel to find out which of the four jackpots he or she had won. D.P. ended up winning the largest of the four jackpots, which is known as the Mega Jackpot, although he or she could just as easily have won any of the much smaller jackpots. These include the Major Jackpot, the Minor Jackpot and the Mini Jackpot.

“With mobile gaming now accounting for almost half of all gameplay, it’s no surprise that we are seeing mega wins on this platform,” said the Head of Casino at Microgaming, John Quinn. The Mega Moolah progressive jackpot pokie is now available in the real money mode at hundreds of fully licensed online casinos and it is widely available across Microgaming’s Flash, download, mobile and Quickfire platforms.

Some of the other top Australian gambling sites that also have this game available include Jackpot City Casino, Jackpot City Mobile Casino, Platinum Play Casino, Platinum Play Mobile Casino, Ruby Fortune Casino and Ruby Fortune Mobile Casino. “We are extremely proud to have the longest-standing and biggest progressive jackpot network in the market, which also holds a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title,” added Quinn.

He then finished by saying, “To now claim the largest ever mobile jackpot win is very pleasing. On behalf of everyone at Microgaming, congratulations to D.P. on this mammoth mobile win.” These four jackpots that you can play to win on a daily basis at any of these top-rated Australian online casinos can also be played for on Microgaming’s The Dark Knight pokie and the Mega Jackpot on these two pokies will never drop below its original seed amount of AU$1,000,000.00.

Right now this jackpot is worth more than AU$9,000,000.00 and it will continue to climb to no fixed amount until one lucky player scoops the lot. For more information about any of the Aussie online casinos that were mentioned above, head over to our online casino review section now.
