On September 9th 2013, Microgaming announced that one lucky player called Gabriel L had netted himself the largest ever progressive jackpot in mobile casino history. He won £3,744,513 while playing at Spin Palace Mobile Casino.

Just a few months later, on December 20th, Microgaming also revealed how another lucky player had become a millionaire thanks to this mobile slot machine. The latest winner is a player known as Rachel and she won herself €1.08 million from this very same slot and at exactly the same microgaming powered mobile casino.

This lucky player was playing at another Microgaming powered casino called Royal Vegas Mobile Casino.

The CEO of Microgaming, Roger Raatgever said at the time, “Creating the first ever mobile millionaire is a huge milestone for Microgaming, and furthermore the industry as a whole. As the mobile gaming sector continues with its remarkable growth, this will be the first of many players to win big through their mobile or tablet device.”
