A few decades ago, you could only play casino games in land-based casinos. Thanks to the internet, you can now enjoy these games at home or while out and about. Though online gambling never guarantees a win, some people have defied the odds and won large cash prizes.
$23.6 Million on Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah
This incredibly huge jackpot was won on 27 April 2021 by a Belgian player whose identity remains unknown. They were playing Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah at Napoleon Sports & Casino when they won this life-changing prize.
Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah is one of many slots to share the Mega Moolah progressive jackpots. It’s themed to Alice in Wonderland and its features include 243 ways to win, free spins, consecutive wins from a single spin and multipliers.
$22.4 Million on Mega Moolah
A very fortunate player won $22.4 million on the original Mega Moolah slot. They spun the reels for just $0.75 and managed to trigger the jackpot feature and win the top prize.
Mega Moolah is a Microgaming slot themed to African animals. Its jackpot feature is triggered at random, though you have a higher chance the bigger your bet is. You’re guaranteed to win one of four progressive jackpots if you trigger it. The biggest one is worth a minimum of $1,000,000.
$17.3 Million on Arabian Nights
In 2011, a Norwegian player won this impressive lump sum while playing Arabian Nights. Developed by NetEnt, who’s also provided us with gems like Gonzo’s Quest slot, it’s a relatively simple slot whose unique feature, besides the progressive jackpot, is free spins round where all wins are tripled.
All wins with wilds are doubled; therefore, if you win with a wild during the free spins round, a x6 multiplier is applied to your winnings. To win the progressive jackpot, you must land five wilds on any of the slot’s 10 paylines.
£13.2 Million on Mega Moolah
Jonathan Heywood, a British soldier, won this staggering prize on Mega Moolah in 2013. This slot’s been online since 2006 and has become very popular thanks to its huge jackpot payouts.
$11.6 Million on Mega Moolah
Another Mega Moolah win came on 5 November 2016. A Canadian man called Marcus Goodwin had luck on his side when he played the slot and won its top prize. The jackpot feature is triggered at random. When it comes into play, you spin a wheel to win one of the four progressive jackpots. The biggest only has a 1/20 chance of winning.
Online casinos offer a huge selection of games and themed slots, and some have given out incredible jackpots like the ones we’ve mentioned before. But which will be the next game to beat a record? Only time will tell.
