A British player has set a new world record for the biggest ever online slots jackpot win. The new record was established on Wednesday 7 October when Jonathon Heywood, who is from Cheshire, was playing the Mega Moolah title from Microgaming. The game boasts four different progressive jackpots, and it was the biggest of the four – known as the Mega Jackpot – which was triggered by Jonathan as just after midnight. The value of that jackpot was a staggering £13,213,838.68, which equated to €17,879,645.12 using the exchange rate at the time of the win.

Jonathon is 26 years old and works as a soldier, and what makes his success even more impressive is the fact that he had deposited just £30 into his online casino account and was playing with 25p bets when he won the £13.21 million jackpot in less than ten minutes. ‘It’s all so surreal,’ he said, ‘and I can’t come to terms with it just yet. I just kept staring at my screen and seeing this huge number…’

The previous world record for the biggest online slots win had been set in 2013 by an anonymous player from Finland. That record sum was €17,861,813, so Jonathon’s Mega Moolah success beat it by £17,832. How long the new record will stand is something that only time will tell.

Roger Raatgever, who is CEO of Microgaming, was delighted with the record-breaking win. ‘We have the longest-standing progressive jackpot network, having launched the first internet progressive jackpot in 1998, as well as the biggest, having paid out over half a billion euros to date.’ he said. ‘Our progressive jackpot network has set many records since its inception, but I’m absolutely overjoyed to say that our software has generated the world’s largest ever online jackpot win. Many congratulations to Jonathon on this life-changing and historic win!’

Jonathon intends to use his new-found wealth to buy the very best medical care for his father, who needs a heart and lung transplant. He also wants to treat himself by swapping his Fiat Punto for a brand new Bentley.

We congratulate Jonathon on his record-breaking win, and we wish him and his family the very best for the future. And, for those of you who have been inspired by this story to try and land a Mega Moolah jackpot of your own, you can do so by visiting 32Red Casino or any other venue that is powered by Microgaming.
