A Mega Moolah jackpot that paid out $19.6 million (£13.2 million) in October 2015 has officially been granted a World Record for the ‘Largest Pay Out on an Online Slot Machine’ by The Guinness Book of World Records.
This record sum beat the previous top pay out, won by a Finnish player back in 2013, by a cool $20,000.
26-year-old Lance Corporal Jon Heywood, a soldier from the UK, scooped the life changing jackpot last October after depositing £30 and playing minimum bets for only 5 minuets. After winning the jackpot, he kept his win a secret for over 3 days and even went to work the following day.
What is Mega Moolah?
Mega Moolah™ is an online slot game developed by casino software company Microgaming. It is particularly famous because it has a progressive jackpot that is linked with four other slot games that then goes on to form an enormous prize pool. Prizes regularly reach up into the several million dollars’ range.
Big Life Changing Win
Upon winning the jackpot, Heywood vowed to buy the “best medical treatment” for his sick father who is currently awaiting a heart and lung transplant at the age of 54. He stated he would “give all his money back for him to be healthy”.
He also said he was looking forward to treating his family to expensive gifts, buying a brand new Bentley and going on a luxury holiday.
Jonathon Heywood won the huge prize shortly after a television advert prompted him to sign up online and play Microgaming’s Mega Moolah online slot.
