The online casino industry has seen many progressive jackpot wins that have gone sky-high into millions of Euros, Dollars or British Pounds. So, in respect of the world record win set in October 2015, here we will present the five biggest online casino wins in the history of online casinos.
Mega Moolah and Mega Fortune are currently known for being the highest paying progressive slots that can be played at online casinos. Mega Moolah can be found at every online casino powered by Microgaming. Some of them you can find at Microgamig Tribune, where you can read casino reviews. However, keep in mind that you cannot use bonuses to play for the progressive jackpot on Mega Moolah which currently stands at around €3 million. So let’s start from the smallest win, which is not small at all.
- €6,934,219 – Mega Moolah
This is the biggest online casino win that was won by a player wagering on his mobile. It happened in April 2015 at Royal Vegas Casino. The winner was Mark A. who became an instant millionaire with just a single spin on Microgaming’s highest and most frequently paying progressive jackpot game.
- €8,027,631 – Mega Moolah
Again Mega Moolah. Microgaming offers 17 different progressive jackpot games through the online casinos that it supplies, but Mega Moolah has been the most rewarding one. This jackpot was won on 9 December 2012 at Butlers Bingo. The winner was John Orchard who won the jackpot by wagering just 30p.
- €11,700,000 – Mega Fortune
NetEnt’s Mega Fortune is very popular progressive jackpot slot among Scandinavian players. Accordingly, this jackpot was won by a Norwegian player in 2011 who managed to win it by just wagering €0.25. Up until 2014 this was the Guinness world record payout in an online casino.
- €17.861.800 – Mega Fortune
In 2014 another Scandinavian player set a new Guinness world record payout in an online casino, but this time a player from Finland. This record survived for over a year and was something that casino players though it can never happen again… up until October 2015.
- €17,879,645 – Mega Moolah
In October 2015 the British soldier Jon Heywood set a new world record, an amount that was just €18,000 bigger than the previous one. Heywood was a soldier that survived missions in Afghanistan, and it doesn’t come for a bigger reward than this for risking his life in the army. His lucky spin cost him only 25p at Betway. His name now stands in the Guinness Book of World Records.
