Online Slot Breaks Guinness World Record as Largest Jackpot Ever

Have you ever thought about what you’d do if you won a life-changing amount of money gambling? Of course you have. We all have. It’s the ultimate get-rich-quick dream. But that’s just a fantasy, right? For some, yes, but not for Jon Heywood of the UK. Lucky Mr. Heywood won a staggering €17,879,645 ($20,062,600, £13,209,300) on the extremely popular Mega Moolah online progressive slot machine.

In case you’re wondering, an online progressive slot is a network of games which take a small portion of every wager played on the network and adds it to a progressive jackpot. The progressive part is that the jackpot never stops growing until it hits, at which time it resets to its starting amount. FYI: Mega Moolah resets to $1.5 million, which is already a huge amount of money. Given a little time, the progressive slot regularly reaches into the tens of millions.

Guinness World Records reviewed and affirmed that this is the biggest jackpot ever won online, making both Jon Heywood and Mega Moolah record breakers at the same time. He for winning the largest jackpot ever, and Mega Moolah for awarding the largest jackpot ever. It’s not often that two world records come out of one event, so this is pretty exciting for Guinness as well.

Developed and licensed by Microgaming, one of the most senior casino games developers in the industry, Mega Moolah has a long history of awarding huge jackpots. To date, more than one-hundred million dollars have been paid and there’s new winners every year.

With recent improvements to mobile connectivity, many online casinos are making mobile versions of their games, which players are responding to favorably. In fact, players love it so much that mobile gambling is expected to increase by 5% annually for the foreseeable future.

Players are already cashing in on the mobile trend, with an anonymous player already collecting a €8,012,153.35 ($8.7 million) jackpot from their smartphone. Yes, online and mobile gambling is such big business that it can regularly payout millions in jackpots. And this is only one particular game. There’s literally thousands and thousands of casino games online and nobody knows who’s going to be the next big winner.

When asked what he was going to do with the money, he had no idea. He was in such shock that all he could do was stare at his bank balance, not believing it was real. Congratulations, Jon!
