Anyone who has ever played at an online casino has dreamt of striking it lucky and walking away a millionaire. The following players lives were changed forever, when they placed that one extraordinary bet and hit the jackpot of their dreams.
Nothing is as fresh in our minds as the most recent huge win from Microgaming’s Mega Moolah. The gaming world went crazy on the 17th of June 2016 when 27 year old KFC employee, Rawiri Pou triggered the $10 million jackpot. No one was as shocked as he was, so much so that when interviewed he couldn’t even come up with a list of things he wanted to spend his winnings on! He did say that its’ all too much to get his head around, and we certainly agree. Pou has some very exciting times ahead of him.
While Pou’s win is certainly huge, it still comes in second to the biggest win ever paid out by Mega Moolah, a game that’s become known as the Millionaire Maker. On the 6th of October 2015 veteran soldier John Haywood walked away with the staggering jackpot win of €17,879,645. Few things say thank you for service to your country like a multimillion Euro retirement plan!
Another big win from Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network was from the recently discontinued game, The Dark Knight. In December 2012 John Orchard won himself the biggest Christmas present ever by claiming a cool £5.8 million progressive jackpot payout. Needless to say, Orchard never returned to his position at the Job Centre after his Christmas Holidays.
The last two of the big top 5 wins are from games created by Scandinavian gaming company Net Entertainment. In 2011 a Norwegian player hit the jackpot in the Mega Fortune slot, taking home over €11 million. Not to be outdone by his fellow Scandinavian, in January 2013 a Finnish player took home a whopping €17.8 million on a bet of only €0.25. Both players chose to remain anonymous, perhaps choosing to fly under the radar with their winnings to avoid scavengers.
So there you have it, some of the biggest online progressive jackpot wins ever! In Europe alone an average of one player a month becomes a millionaire playing progressive jackpot games. Thus the chance for you to change your life is definitely still a dream that can be realised, and Mummys Gold casino features plenty of games that could make you a winner!
