The Mega Moolah Progressive Jackpot slot has made another millionaire at Spin Palace Online Casino this month, after the last massive jackpot of over £13 million was won at its sister casino Betway last year.

Gary, who was playing on his mobile on Friday the 8th of April 2016 became an instant millionaire, bagging €3,744,513 of the £/€/$ 10 million that was up for grabs. As with all Microgaming powered online casino jackpots, this life-changing sum of money will be paid out in a single lump sum which is not always the case at other online casinos who often payout jackpots in instalment amounts over a period of years.

After Gary’s win, the jackpot reset to just over the 6 million mark instead of the usual default 1 million when the full jackpot has been won.

So it could hit again VERY soon and you could be the next winner at any time, whether you’re playing on your desktop, laptop, mobile phone or tablet device from anywhere in the world!

The Mega Moolah Slot is a 5 reel, 25 payline game that combines the excitement of an action packed online slot with a Wheel of Fortune type feature that awards one of 4 jackpots. The original games is an African Safari themed slot, but there are also 4 other variations of the game, each with their own theme that are also linked to the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot prize. These include Mega Moolah Isis, Mega Moolah Summertime, Mega Moolah 5 reel drive and Batman: The Dark Knight.

No matter which one you choose to play, you’ll be thoroughly entertained and who knows, you may get very lucky and have it change your life!

Playtech launches Mobile Live Dealer Casino Games

Playtech Roulette
Live dealer versions of table games like roulette and blackjack have become exceptionally popular at online casinos. This is largely attributed to the fact that players can interact with human dealers making it feel like they are playing in a real brick and mortar casino but with the added advantage of doing so in the comfort of their own homes. An added advantage of these types of games is that it offers players who are sceptical about the integrity of RNG games an alternative where they can have full peace of mind regarding the integrity of live dealer versions.

While live dealer games were first launched a few years ago, they have been restricted to play on PC and laptops only, this has meant that players using mobile devices have had to be content with RNG based casino games only. All of that however, is about to change, with software giant Playtech bridging the divide with the launch of its mobile live dealer casino games.

At present Playtech’s newly launched mobile Roulette offering is only available on Android devices but will also be rolled out in native iOS and HTML5 version in the weeks to come along with live dealer Blackjack and Baccarat games for all smart phones and tablets.

According to recent information released by Belle Rock Entertainment, the group who operates online casinos like Jackpot City, the UK and Germany are the world’s top online gambling markets. Interestingly, research by Socialnomics shows that up to 20% of the time players devote to online casino games occurs through social media platforms in both countries.

Social Media platforms are not however the only popular online gambling media and online casinos are increasingly being accessed from mobile phone and tablet devices, especially in the German market where mobile gaming is projected to double in volume over the next three years.

Across the globe, over 81 million people indulge in social gaming on a daily basis. In the UK market, returning players form a large percentage of this figure, with research showing over 60% of the UK’s social gambling audience playing a minimum of once per day.

While social gambling is still a developing market, grow looks set to be unprecedented in the years to come with research firms like Transparency Market Research projecting an increase of 44% in social gamers in 2015 in comparison to 2012.

Findings show that Facebook is one of the most popular social media platforms offering these games, and with their recent launch of online casino games, the popularity looks set to increase. At present one billion hours are devoted to social gaming on a monthly basis. With Facebook now enjoying in excess of one billion users worldwide, it is only to be expected that the future will see even more time spent enjoying social gaming on the platform.

In spite of legal issues in certain parts of the world, online gambling in its entirety is experiencing substantial growth. From 2010 to 2011, online casino traffic increased by 32% and at present in the UK online gambling accounts for 15% of the total British Internet Market. With smartphones on the increase and being widely adopted by the majority of the world’s population, online casinos are more accessible than ever, as are social media gaming sites. If the trend continues on its current trajectory, social gaming revenue is projected to reach $117.9 billion by 2015.
