Record Breaking Online Casino Jackpot Spawns Millionaire

Just when you thought progressive jackpots at online casinos couldn't get any larger, another millionaire was made after hitting a multi-million Euro jackpot. In fact, the lucky player becomes the biggest online millionaire to date. The whopping jackpot was to the tune of 6,374,434, which is the largest jackpot ever won in the history of online gambling.

Not surprisingly, the jackpot was through Microgaming Software's expansive progressive jackpot network of online casinos. Mainly focused on the UK and Euro online gambling sector, Microgaming casinos are widely considered some of the best destinations to wager online. Even after closing their doors to the U.S. market, Microgaming has been able to procure a large share of the billions gambled online each year. Consequently, the progressive jackpots have managed to stay hefty.

This has never been more evident than the massive jackpots building up at Microgaming's "Mega Moolah" video slot, which has paid out $286 million to 7,000+ players, and is directly responsible for creating 14 online millionaires. Indeed, it was "Mega Moolah" that dished out this most recent millionaire. And quite frankly, it's likely to be "Mega Mollah" that will make the next online millionaire.

The online casino lucky enough to host the jackpot (almost as lucky as the winning player) was River Belle Casino. One of the top online casinos in the popular Belle Rock Entertainment Group (managed by Gibraltar-based and licensed, Carmen Media), which includes the OCS reviewed Jackpot City Casino, River Belle is no stranger to large jackpots. Taking a peek at the Recent Winners page of this eCOGRA approved casino's website and you'll see what I mean.

Carmen Media's CEO, Tim Johnson, expressed the excitement felt by all. "It's always a pleasure to see players win life changing jackpots", said Johnson. He went on to give a hearty congratulations to the player who happened to be a longtime loyal player at River Belle. Second Johnson's congratulations was Microgamign CEO, Roger Raatgever. Due to privacy laws, the full identity of the player could not be disclosed. However, it has been confirmed that the player is a small business owner residing in Greece, and who goes by the name Georgios M.
