For months, slot players have had their sights set on the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot and last Saturday somebody finally hit it big.
A Record Breaking Win
We told you about the jackpot setting a new record, surpassing the previous high of $5.5 Million that was won at the time by a player called Klaus E. from Finland. It was no surprise then that slot players from all over the world were locked in on this huge jackpot, with one very lucky player winning $6.3 Million two days ago.
No details have been released yet as to who won the jackpot and at which casino, but seeing as the Mega Moolah is hosted at Microgaming casinos, we do know that the player was not a U.S. citizen since U.S players currently are not allowed at these casinos thanks to the horrible UIGEA.
The Importance of The Pro-Gambling bill
It's moment like this that underline the importance of Barney Frank's Pro-Gambling Bill, as U.S. players would also have a chance at winning such a great jackpot.
We're keeping our fingers crossed that Mr. Frank can get that bill approved and in the meantime, they will just have to keep playing at the other great online casinos that do accept U.S. players.
