Record high progressive jackpot win set by UK Betway player


Mega-Moolah, Microgaming’s most prominent progressive slot game, known for totalling the progressive jackpot well over a million has now created its biggest millionaire.

On October 7th 2015, just after midnight, UK Betway player Jonathon Heywood hit the mega jackpot,winning  a staggering £13,213,838.68. Using the exchange rate on the day of the win, this is the equivalent of€17,879,645.12*, making it the largest sum ever won in an online pokie game. As with all Microgaming’s progressive jackpot wins, the astounding amount will be paid out to the player in a lump sum.

Jonathon, a 26-year-old soldier from Cheshire, couldn’t believe his luck when the life-changing figure splashed up on his screen. But he still managed to make it in to work just hours later!

“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”. The lucky winner, Jonathon Heywood
