Biggest Online Jackpot Wins of Last Year

It is always a momentous occasion when someone wins an online jackpot from a casino. And while many of us believe that they do not come around so frequently, several big winners were recorded in 2020. So, keep playing and you never know, you could be the very next person to claim a jackpot payout.

Let’s have a look at the biggest online jackpot wins of 2020.

€14.2 Million on Mega Moolah

Microgaming’s progressive jackpot slot Mega Moolah has made some epic millionaires throughout its years of operation, and it seems as though 2020 was no exception to this. In August, the Lucky Casino site saw someone from Sweden opting to play the game and win a massive €14,239,532.84 as a result. At the same time, this marks the biggest jackpot ever to be won in Sweden through an online casino gaming session.

The winner, who opted to remain anonymous, said that somewhere deep down, they ultimately believed in the dream of winning a jackpot all along. However, when they won it, they actually thought it was a joke. “It was only when Lucky Casino called me that I realised that my life will suddenly be different”.

€10.7 Million on Mega Moolah

As if the €14.2 million payout on Mega Moolah was not enough, it made a large payout in April of last year, too. The €10,735,716.84 prize went to a player at JackpotCity Casino. That eight-figure jackpot reward was paid out to the lucky winner in a single lump sum, as is usually the case with wins on the Microgaming progressive network. Mega Moolah remains the largest progressive jackpot in the industry, and with such rewards, it is little wonder that people keep returning to it.

€7.7 Million on Atlantean Treasures Mega Moolah

And to top it all off, a May payout also came from the Mega Moolah series, but this time from the Atlantean Treasures game. The slot, which is a united release from Microgaming and Neon Studios, rewarded one lucky gamer with a €7,784,425.63 payout.

That occurred while being accessed at the River Belle casino site. Contributing towards the overall progressive network from this developer, its inclusion means that Microgaming’s progressive games have paid out €1.1 billion since it began operating.

€4.2 Million on Empire Fortune

One week after the aforementioned win on Atlantean Treasures, a €4.2 million payout was experienced on the Empire Fortune slot from Yggdrasil. The gamer, who was accessing the slot from his laptop at the Wildz online casino, was lucky enough to access the jackpot wheel while playing. That led him to the multimillion jackpot reward, with the total sum awarded to players from Empire Fortune and Joker Millions equating to €39.5 million.

$443,480 on Divine Fortune

Heading across the pond to the United States, one Pennsylvania resident chose to access the BetRivers casino site after losing her job as a restaurant worker due to COVID-19. While there, she decided that the Divine Fortune game from Netent would be her favoured game in November, and lo and behold, she scooped a healthy $443,480.64 from its progressive jackpot feature. Accessing the slot from her mobile phone, Lynn managed to hit a huge payout with a simple $3 wager.

At the time, her husband was watching the TV late at night while she was playing the online game. He did not believe she had won the jackpot until she showed him the game screen on her phone.

$289,270 on Well of Wishes

There was a good start to 2020 when a player at Casumo Casino from Kitchener, Ontario hit the big time on Well of Wishes. While having a cosy Friday night at home with his wife, the player chose to access the Red Tiger Gaming slot. That regular Friday night turned into one of exceptional celebration after he showed his wife the jackpot that was flashing on his mobile screen.

The Best Time to Play Slot Machines Online

Is there a perfect time to play slots machines online or offline? A quick answer would be that there is no specific time to play the slots. The simple reason would be that slots are random and utilize the Random Number Generator (RNG) principle. The use of RNG ensures that the outcome of the game you play is not influenced or predetermined. So, the majority set of players believe that for maximum benefits and payout from a slot, one has to gamble on a slot with the highest Return to Player (RTP) percentage. This is right. Read more
