Record breaking win at Betway casinoIf you’ve ever doubted that Microgaming is all about awesome casino games and big wins, then doubt no more. Microgaming has now been granted the honour of having the largest online slot machine payout in history as rewarded by the Guinness World Records. 

The record-breaking win

Microgaming received the title for ‘Largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game’ after the whopping win on the 6th of October 2015. The jackpot of £13,213,838.68 was landed by Cheshire soldier, Jon Heywood, while playing Mega Moolah at Betway Casino. The lucky punter won this life-changing sum on a small bet of only 25p. The progressive jackpot paid out £13,213,838.68 after starting at only £1 million! 

After a very thorough process in which both Betway Casino and Microgaming had to submit evidence of the win, Guinness World Records confirmed that it was indeed record breaking. “I’m pleased to confirm that the Guinness World Records title for the largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game is €17,879,645.12, which was won by Jonathan Heywood, while playing Microgaming’s Mega Moolah on Betway's website. And Jon is certainly in the moolah now, thanks to his exceptional stroke of luck,” said the Guinness World Records spokesperson.

Naturally, Microgaming is ecstatic about the win and the title, on which Roger Raatgever, Microgaming CEO commented, saying: “When news broke about Jon’s amazing jackpot win back in October, we were overjoyed – what an incredible and heart-warming story. We’ve achieved many industry records over the years, but to be officially awarded a Guinness World Records title is a special and proud moment for us all. It cements our position in providing the largest and most exciting progressive jackpot network in the industry. We can’t wait to hang the certificate in our office reception!”

Massive progressive jackpots

It’s no surprise that Mega Moolah has once again proved that it’s the ‘Millionaire Maker’. The popular casino slot has earned this title and continues to prove that it’s correct time and time again. As the jackpots for the various Mega Moolah slots climb each day, we can only wonder who will be the next record-breaking winner.
