Over the last few months we’ve ran articles about the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot total reaching truly staggering amounts. In July of this year it had already reached an all-time record of $8 million and at that point there was already speculation and a lot of fuss being made fairly early on about the possibility of it being won. Roll on to early September and Mega Moolah had just breached the $11 million mark. Microgaming commented on all the proceedings, a very exciting time for them considering the sheer magnitude of the jackpot on offer, yet still even their hopeful calls for a winner went unanswered.

Fast forward all the way to the 7th of October and the Mega Moolah prize fund was well over $13 million, so while scanning through some jackpots online we saw that the Mega Moolah prize fund total had reset itself. Wait what? Someone has won it? Then to our surprise we had the information come through that a British player had won the jackpot. Indeed, none other than a member of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces, a British soldier named Jonathon Heywood, 26 from Cheshire in the United Kingdom had won £13,213,838.00!!! This was a huge event, to make the story even more mind blowing we found out from our sources that he won it with a single 0.25p spin! This is a new world record for an online jackpot win and also a new world record for Microgaming.

When asked about his win, Jonathon commented; “It’s all so surreal, and I can’t come to terms with it just yet, I just kept staring at my screen and seeing this huge number in my account”. From all the team here at we’d like to extend our congratulations to Jonathon who’s just won a huge life changing sum of money! We hope he enjoys it and also enjoys the new life that it will make possible for him and his family.
