The controversy of the winning Mega Moolah jackpot was finally settled by Microgaming software group, after CEO Roger Raatgever issued a statement this weekend.

Mega Moolah's $4.1 million jackpot hit on the Summertime slot game last week, spurring a number of online casinos to claim that the win originated at their sites.

Some of the Microgaming partner sites to claim the win were Blackjack Ballroom and Crazy Vegas, and confusion continued to reign as gamblers remained unsure about which casino was the correct one.

However, Roger Raatgever finally ended a few days of controversy after he stated this weekend that the winning casino was actually Spin Palace, a member of the Palace Group of casinos.

"I am delighted that the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot was won on 29th August, and can confirm that even though the win has been claimed by a number of different casinos, it was in fact won by a player on Spin Palace Casino," confirmed Raatgever.

It seems that the confusion began after no concrete details regarding the win were made public shortly when the jackpot was hit, as is usually done with other wins.

A spokesperson for Spin Palace said: "This is a substantial win, and understandably Mrs. P is quite overwhelmed by what will undoubtedly be a life-changing windfall,"

"We are currently in discussions with her, and will hopefully be able to make further announcements shortly," he added.
