The Biggest Online Casino Wins

Posted on January 22nd, 2015

Everyone dreams of spinning a few reels, placing a few bets and hitting that one life-changing win at their favourite online casino. It happens- just not that often. Whilst many are drawn to the various table games on offer, many players are tempted away by the massive progressive jackpots that are available to win on bigger slot games like Mega Moolah (a Microgaming casino slot) and MegaJackpots from IGT. We take a look at just some of those lucky jackpot winners who have managed to score the biggest online casino wins and walk away with mammoth winnings.

Big John
The best Christmas he could have ever hoped for arrived back in 2012 for John Orchard from Lincolnshire in the UK. The fortunate fellow managed to win big, £5.8 million pounds worth to be exact, over at Butler’s Casino. John was playing The Dark Knight slot game when he managed to spin in his huge win which was linked to the Mega Moolah jackpot network.

The lucky player, a deep sea fisherman from Aberdeenshire, managed to pick up his £5.4 million win playing Hall of Gods™, their popular 5-reel, 3-row video slot game. He reportedly began by just betting a mere 20p per spin until his payout grew exponentially into the huge jackpot he eventually ended up winning. Incredibly it came a mere 6 months after a £4.5 million prize was won by another player on the site who managed to pick up his life altering cash pot by playing the Mega Fortune online slot game.

As we saw with our previous entry there is always the chance that a big jackpot will pay out on a progressive slot game more than once in a fairly short period of time. But with this next example we’re not talking about months but we’re looking at two large jackpots wins in the very same week! The Wild West themed game Gold Rally housed the duo of lucky winners back in December 2013 where two players both collected massive wins. The first winner netted an impressive $6.3m win whilst the second large payout, occurring just days later, scored the next lucky punter a cool $277,228.

But in spite of these huge payouts that we’ve seen so far none of them come even close the world record breaking slot machine win of €17,861,800, which is around $24 million. A Finnish player logged in to Scandinavian online casino site PAF and was more than pleased when he managed to pick up the top prize on the Mega Fortune progressive jackpot game. And what makes it even more unbelievable is that he managed to pickup this incredible prize by simply placing a single 25 cent bet.

How does this work, you might ask? Surely a 17 million euro win after a 25c bet would make the casino go bust. Well, it probably would if it was all paid by the losing casino, but the way these progressive jackpots work, is that lots of different casinos share the pain when a big win hits- it is spread over a network of sites (and often games as well). This is how they are able to offer such large jackpots.
