Throughout October 2015 there have been lots of big online casino winners already and most of these big winners were playing at a Microgaming casino when they won. The biggest win in recent times occurred over at Betway Casino on Wednesday 7th October, 2015, just after midnight (GMT).
26-year-old Lance Corporal Jonathon Heywood from Cheshire, England, won the ‘Mega Jackpot’ on a Microgaming progressive jackpot slot machine called Mega Moolah. This lucky winner netted a world-record-breaking £13,213,838.68 (approx. €17,879,645.12) while playing at Betway Casino. “It’s all so surreal, and I can’t come to terms with it just yet, I just kept staring at my screen and seeing this huge number in my Betway account,” said the winner.
While playing at an online casino called UK Casino Club, player J.F. won €99,324, also from the Mega Moolah online slot. “I was in shock to be honest; I had to check I was actually logged in! We've been saving a deposit for our own home so this money will help secure us our first family home. I told my 13 year old daughter and her first response was ‘great, you can buy me an iPhone6 now,” said the winner. There was also a player from New Zealand who netted NZ$281,800.00 while playing at one of the Fortune Lounge controlled online casinos on a slot machine called Burning Desire.
