World Record €19m Online Slot Win

How do you fancy spinning the reels of a slot machine and seconds later becoming a multi-millionaire? That’s just what happened to a player in Belgium on April 27 with an incredible €19,430,723.60 win. That’s around £16.8m and is the largest ever online jackpot win.

The incredible windfall came on Microgaming’s Mega Moolah progressive jackpot network. Every time someone plays one of their slots, the progressive jackpot gets larger and larger. All those who play these and other slots dream of landing a progressive jackpot. For the Belgian player, that dream came true.

Their success came on the Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah online slot. Absolootly Mad is probably how the player felt after his incredible slice of luck. The slot game was launched in May 2020 and has an Alice in Wonderland theme. It’s likely the winner had more than a tea party after becoming a multi-millionaire.

The game was designed by Triple Edge Studios exclusively for Microgaming. Its gameplay sees players taken down a rabbit hole searching for gold coins and big wins. The past year has seen the game give out €46 million but this win in April really was the big one.

The win came at the Napoleon Sports & Casino on April 27. That’s one of Belgium’s top online gambling platforms. That seems to be a very lucky place to play at. The week before this win another player scooped a €2,025,388.75 jackpot playing Microgaming’s ‘Sherlock & Moriarty WowPot.’ That game was only launched last month and got off to a great start. There was a win of €440,481.82 on its first day and has already given out over €3.5m in jackpot wins.

It’s been revealed that the winner of this record jackpot had read about that previous win. Napoleon Sports & Casino CEO Tim De Borle said that had led the winner to pursue his own dreams and they came true. He believes that their site has become “the home of the jackpot” and described the win as “the absolute highlight of the amazing partnership we have with Microgaming.”

John Coleman is the CEO of Microgaming, and he’s delighted to see their Mega Moolah game “make history once again.” As is the case with all wins on the Microgaming progressive jackpot network, the prize will be awarded in the form of a lump sum rather than an annuity.

April was a massive month for big slot wins. Other highlights included a €17,529,047.11 (£15,183,085.96) win on Microgaming’s ‘Book of Atem: WowPot’ game That win came on the site, not bad for an 80p stake!

Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network has now gone through the one billion euros payout total. Over €1.3 billion has been won across the jackpots, tiers and games. How long before the 2 billion mark is reached?

Winning these progressive jackpots is fantastic of course. However, don’t chase them too much and keep an eye on your playing budget at all times.
