What is the biggest jackpot won on online slot games?
Though online casino games can be pretty much entertaining, nothing makes them sweeter than hitting the jackpot and walking away with millions of dollars or pounds after placing a bet of less than a dollar. Many people have tried their best to win the jackpot to no avail. However, there lies a chosen few who have tried their luck with just a few cents and walked away with millions of dollars.
One lucky winner who holds the record for winning the largest ever jackpot in an online casino game is none other than Jon Heywood from the UK. On the 6th of October 2015, Jon Heywood won a whopping $20,062,600 after playing the Micro-Gaming Mega Moolah on Betway’s website after placing a 25 pence bet on the winning spin. Initially, Jon had deposited £30 and was placing a bet of 25 cents after every seven minutes.
The online slot game Mega Moolah is a five reel and 25 pay line slot game. This online slot game has been known to offer huge rewards to the players hence earning the nickname “The Millionaire Maker”. Players are advised to register with the betting company and place their bets depending on the number of spins available. When playing Mega Moolah, you can decide to use your mobile phone or simply browse through the nature-themed background game from your laptop. If you use a Windows laptop, you can download the game and install it as a deluxe casino.
The winner of the jackpot is determined by the number of jackpots available. Normally, the Mega Moolah spin has a total of four jackpots namely Mini, Minor, Mega, and Major. The Mega Moolah Jackpot usually has a minimum payout of £1 million.
Jon’s win was so major to the extent that it is recognized by the Guinness Book Of World Records as been the largest jackpot ever won in an online slot game.
