Microgaming's Mega Moolah breaks world record! £13.2 million won by a UK Betway player.
ISLE OF MAN – Microgaming announces a record-breaking jackpot win on its millionaire-maker slot, Mega Moolah.

Known for its massive pay-outs, and life-changing wins, Microgaming’s Mega Moolah has created another instant millionaire, but this time it’s larger than ever before.

On October 6th 2015, UK Betway player Jonathon Heywood hit the mega jackpot, winning £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 ever online slot win. As with all Microgaming’s progressive jackpot wins, the astonishing 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!

*Using the exchange rate as at 6th October 2015, the GBP 13,213,838.68 win converts to EUR 17,879,645.12 (source: Oanda). 

Note to editors: Winning amount shown on the progressive ticker is paid out in the currency in which the winner has played the game. Therefore, if played in the UK, 10,000,000 is paid in Pounds Sterling. If played in Spain, this would be 10,000,000 Euros.
