Biggest Online Casino Winners of All Time

Just in case you needed a little inspiration, we have decided to put together a list of some of the most incredible casino wins of all time. While many gamblers enjoy online casinos for its entertainment value, others are out to win big. Whether you are playing for fun or in the hopes of striking it lucky, gambling is a fickle thing, and your luck could change in a blink of an eye.  Just ask these lucky players, whose lives have undoubtedly changed thanks to playing at online casinos.


Mega moolah with Mega Moolah


Rawiri Pou from New Zealand probably didn’t expect that his life was about to change when he woke up on the morning of 17th June 2016. Pou decided to try his luck at Casinoland on the ever-popular Mega Moolah progressive jackpot game. Little did he know that he would win the elusive jackpot of NZ$10,144,395.82 ($7.41 million). As important as this win was for Pou, it was important to CasinoLand as well as it was the first recorded win since the casino’s launch in 2015.


The Dark Knight raises the stakes


An anonymous player earned a massive AU$10,423,223 (around $7.86 million) playing the Dark Knight slot from Microgaming on 8th April 2016. The events unfolded while playing at Spin Palace Casino, and while the progressive jackpot starts at a whopping $1 million, the Aussie enjoyed a much higher reward.


Mega Moolah strikes again


Mega Moolah is one of the most popular and lucrative Microgaming progressive games around. The game has single-handedly created instant millionaires all over the world, including Mergios M, who won an incredible €6.3 million ($8.6 million) in March 2009 while playing at River Belle Online Casino. The 36-year-old businessperson from Greece has advised players to ‘not lose hope; it’s a small moment that could change your life’.


Hall of Gods awards godly jackpot


One lucky woman in Sweden won a mega €7.6 million playing the Hall of Gods slot game at Unibet Online Casino in November 2012. With the winnings, the lucky player said she plans to pay off her house and loans and then take her family on vacation to Thailand. What made this win extra special was that is was the biggest win ever at Unibet Casino, and, at the time, only the fifth player to join the casino’s ‘millionaire’s club’.


Another blessing from the gods


Hall of Gods hit an all-new record when it awarded €7,820,888 ($8.73 million) to a Betsson Casino player on 18 April 2015. Hall of Gods has been awarding millions for a long time, but this win was definitely it highest payout yet. The winner has chosen to stay anonymous, which is probably a good idea.


It pays to go mobile


Another anonymous player who simply goes by the initials D.P. managed to net a sensational 7.9 million euros ($8.82 million) on 28th August 2016 playing the Mega Moolah mobile game. This makes his win the largest progressive jackpot won on a mobile device. And apparently, all the player bet was a £/$/€1 deposit.


Mega fortune for Swedish player


While Mega Moolah brings Microgaming all kinds of attention, Mega Fortune is the NetEnt version of the game, which is equally lucrative. The slot had recorded many wins over the years, although the highest came on 28th November 2015 when Swedish player Alexander won €8,577,204 ($9.57 million). The lucky fish said he would use the money to pay off his mortgage, go on exciting holidays and buy a new car. A mega fortune indeed!


A win for the record books


It seems sleepless nights are not as bad as they seem. Well, that certainly is the case for one Norwegian player who decided to play a few online casino games after having a restless night. It turns out luck was on his side as he won a whopping €11,736,375  while playing Mega Fortune as Betsson. In fact, the game set the Guinness World Record for the largest jackpot win ever, which was not only great for the player but also gave the online casino extra exposure.


Another record-breaking with for Mega Moolah


It seems Mega Moolah is the progressive game to beat in terms of creating millionaires. One such millionaire is Johnathan Heywood, a 26-year-old British soldier from Cheshire, UK. On 6th October 2015, while playing for 25p per spin at Betway Casino, Johnathan hit the big time and netted a fantastic £13.2 million (approximately $17.2 million) jackpot. Heywood said at the time that he planned to use the money to help treat his sick father. The player also earned a Guinness World Record for his win.


World Record win


Imagine betting just 25 cents at an online casino and walking away with €17,861,800 (around $24 million). That’s exactly what happened when one lucky Finnish man played Mega Fortune at Scandinavia site PAF and became an instant millionaire on 20th January 2013. The man, who has remained anonymous, said the win was a dream come true.
