The biggest winners in online casino history have scored their life-changing wins on progressive jackpot slots like Mega Fortune and Hall of Gods. But by far the most prolific progressive slot when it comes to generating instant millionaires has to be Mega Moolah.
Sure, the theme of Mega Moolah is nominally a safari hunt, but the real theme that most players pay attention to is the way it can win them oodles of cash in a few seconds.
In 2015 a British soldier named Jonathan Heywood won over £13,213,838.68 playing Mega Moolah through Betway Casino. He had previously toured in Afghanistan, so it is hard to think of a more deserving person to find themselves suddenly set for life when it comes to cash.
In a very moving account, Heywood told the media his first purchase would be to buy the “best possible medical treatment” for his father, who was then waiting for two organ transplants (heart and lung).
He also pledged to spend a bit of dosh on himself, including a luxury car.
Heywood’s win was at the time a world record for an online casino win, but that was smashed in January 2019 by a player known only as “E.O.” She had just finished her homework when she decided to open up Mega Moolah on Zodiac Casino. She placed a bet, hit spin, and then her life suddenly changed forever.
E.O.: I tried to withdraw the $15 million but I’m not sure if it’s real?
C.R.: Congratulations!!! You won $20 million and have $5 million in pending!!!
E.O.: Wait… what?
C.R.: Did you not realise you’ve actually won over $20 million?
E.O.: I thought I had actually won $15 million and that $5 million was a bonus or something that I had to play through… I was so confused… HOLY COW!
C.R.: Well I can tell you that you successfully have your funds in pending! They are on their way to you!
E.O.: That’s AWESOME!!! Woweeee!
C.R.: It’s absolutely incredible!!! So what’s your plan right now?! How many Ferraris are you going to buy?!
E.O.: Haha I know, right?! I have no idea right now! I’m in total shock (E.O.’s voice starts to break with tears). I’m still staring at the amount on the screen!
That’s right, E.O. won $20 million!
It was not only a record for a Mega Moolah win, it was a new record for the biggest win on any only casino ever!
As for what E.O. plans to do with her huge haul? Evidently she wants to try her luck on another pastime – fishing.
As she told Casino Rewards: “I am definitely going to buy houses for all my family! The first thing I am going to buy is a 4×4 Jeep! A white Jeep Rubicon with tan interior! I’m also a collector, I’ve been browsing online to see what I can get. I would also like to buy an RV and go travelling, maybe to Alaska with my two dogs. I like to fish.”
What would you do with $20 million? The jackpot is not always as high as $20, but it is normally over a million dollars. Get 80 Mega Moolah spins on Zodiac Casino for just $1 and you can try your luck at becoming an instant millionaire yourself.
