The software used in the Mega Fortune progressive slot was provided by Net Entertainment, which networks a vast list of international online casinos. The winner, who is only in his 40s, said in an interview that he laughed and cried at the same time when the fortune was won. This win helped set the bar higher on the potential for progressive online jackpot amounts.

Soldier of Fortune

Jonathon Heywood is a career British military man who experienced winning a life-altering online record win. This 26-year old was an avid player of the extremely popular Mega Moolah Progressive slot offered at Betway Casino, which is powered by Microgaming. On October 6, 2015 he was playing Mega Moolah at 25p per spin, and was suddenly propelled into a state of disbelief. The progressive win amounted to €13.2 million, or about $17.2 million. This Guinness Book of World Records win for the Mega Moolah progressive slot immediately created a media frenzy in the UK. Thousands of Betway patrons expressed their congratulations for a fellow Brit winning such a huge prize. Though Heywood has a great deal of living and online gaming left to do, he has told the world that he wants nothing more than to spend the jackpot amount assisting his sick father with medical expenses. Online gaming jackpots aren’t just exciting for players, but they have huge humanitarian aspects as well.

The Power of Bonuses

In 2011, a man from Norway was playing the Mega Fortune game provided by Net Entertainment. He was playing as a patron of online casino, and had been gauging a couple of play-extending wins until the early hours of the morning. In a sleepy haze, this man was invigorated with the announcement on his computer screen proclaiming he had just won the Mega Fortune jackpot. It was valued at €11,736,375! The reason this jackpot was so extraordinary was that it was won through the bonus play options of the game. On a 4-out-of-5 line match he was accelerated to the 3-tiered bonus spin wheel. With three instinctive “stops,” he made his way to the center feature and immediately became almost €12 million richer. The CEO of expressed in a Guinness Book of World Records interview that he was excited the man’s jackpot win helped illustrate the amazing possibilities of Mega Fortune on the world online gaming stage.

Humility in the Face of Fortune

In 2015, a man named Alexander was “lighting up the reels” at Folkeautomaten, a Swedish online casino. The Mega Fortune game’s reputation for making people wealthy was again triggered by this 30-year old’s typical level of betting. This particular jackpot was worth €8,577,204, or $9.57 million. The Chief Product Officer of Net Entertainment personally congratulated Alexander “the Swede” on his win. When asked about his plans for spending the jackpot, Alexander expressed that he would simply like to finish paying his mortgage. It seems that with a win like this, Alexander might consider branching into more substantial real estate ventures. Of course, he will also use some of it to chase bigger future online gaming jackpots.
