It’s a fact. There is always a chance that you could be that one-in-a-million progressive slots jackpot winner, the chosen one, the proud owner of the one that didn’t get away.
Mega Moolah Gets Mega
Google Mega Moolah online slots and under ‘People Also Ask’ the first two questions are: ‘is Mega Moolah legit?’ and ‘has anyone won Mega Moolah?’. The answer to both questions is yes. In fact: the answer is ‘yes – with bells on’.

Heywood is not the only player to win an eight-figure jackpot playing Mega Moolah. In 2017, an anonymous player won More than $9 million playing on the mobile casino. It remains the biggest single win on online casino. It makes you wonder where exactly the lucky player was when the jackpot landed. On the bus? On the train? In the pub? In the toilet? It was a good job that no one rang.
Finland = Winland
Take the current exchange rates into account and there is a fight for the top spot slot. On January 20, 2013, a 40-year-old man in Helsinki spun his way to a fortune when he won €17.8 million playing the Mega Fortune progressive slots. The rise of the euro against the pound means this jackpot is now the new world record holder.
The five reel, 25-payline, game from NetEnt is a celebration of the finer things in life and comes with three progressive jackpots: Rapid, Major, and Mega. It’s the latter that brings home the bacon, sausages, and prime rib. In 2019, this slot paid out at least five jackpots of more than €2.5 million.
Meanwhile in Las Vegas…
Online slots are quick to seed progressive jackpots because players connect from all around the globe. In Las Vegas, the state-owned Megabucks machines bring the thrill of the monster jackpot progressive onto the casino floor. There are more than 700 linked machines, in 136 casinos, in the state of Nevada, and they have paid out some of the biggest slots wins ever recorded.
In 2003, a 25-year-old software engineer from Los Angels won $39,710,826.36 from a $10 bet at the Excalibur resort. The win was paid out in 25 instalments of $1.5 million. To win the Megabucks jackpot, you must wager at least $3. The odds of winning the big one are estimated at one in 50 million and the taxman will take about 40 per cent of your winnings. Even so: a Megabucks win would definitely be the highlight of any trip to Sin City.
