Last week we announced that the £13 million Mega Moolah Progressive Jackpot had been hit but that details were still forthcoming. This week, Microgaming announced that the big win happened at Betway Online Casino and that the lucky winner is a 26 year old soldier and Afghanistan veteran who has chosen not to remain anonymous.

Jon Heywood hit the Jackpot on the 6th of October 2015 after placing a bet of just 25p on the Mega Moolah Progressive Jackpot Slot. In spite of winning the life-changing sum, he was asked to remain mum on the subject until the win could be validated and made public, so instead of celebrating straight away, he had to act as though nothing happened and even went to work the next day.

Now, this week after the win was validated, the news has been made public and Heywood has spoken out on the subject of what he has planned for all that cash. First on the list is attending to his father’s health and buying him the best medical treatment possible as he is currently awaiting a lung and heart transplant. Heywood says that family is his first priority and that he’d give all his money to see his dad back in perfect health.

In addition to a family holiday aboard a Mediterranean Cruise, Heywood who currently owns a Fiat Punto would like to upgrade his ride to a yellow Bentley Continental GT – a car which he says he has never even dreamt of driving let alone owning.

As part of the Microgaming network that pays out all Progressive Jackpot wins in a single lump sum, Heywood will receive his prize money in full – something that is not common practice at all online casinos as some impose limits on payouts which means that huge jackpots like this one can take years to be paid out in full.

Since the win, the Mega Moolah Jackpot ticker has been reset to its default total of £1 million and is already steadily climbing as it awaits the next lucky winner.

Mega Moolah 13 Million Jackpot Hit!

Mega Moolah Jackpot Win

Slots players have been avidly following and playing the Mega Moolah Progressive Slot which has been steadily climbing upwards through the multi-million marks over the past few months.

Now the online casino player community is abuzz at the news that the massive £13,212,882 Mega Moolah Progressive Slots Jackpot has been hit! Early yesterday morning we realised that the Mega Moolah jackpot counter had been re-set to the $/€/£ 1,000,000 mark and later in the day, although no official announcements had been made, player forums featured discussions on the topic.

At present all we know is that the progressive jackpot was won in British Pounds (GBP) – as Microgaming generally adds any currency difference back to the next re-set figure if it is won in Dollars or Euros, which means that the exchange rate deficit then benefits the next winner. This time however it was reset to 1 million, which means that the highest possible amount was won by the lucky winner.

Details on who has won and which Microgaming powered online casino they were playing at are still forthcoming and Microgaming has not released any statements regarding the big win as yet, nor have any of the online casinos within its network, but as soon as we have the details you’ll know!

According to reports, once official, this win will represent the second largest win in online Progressive Jackpot history, and is the 25th Mega Jackpot win since 2009. Only one other win to date has been greater – the Mega Fortune Jackpot from Net Entertainment which paid out at €17,861,813 in 2013.

The Mega Moolah Progressive Mega Jackpot is Microgaming’s most popular jackpot which can be won by playing any of the games linked in the series which include Batman: The Dark Knight and Mega Moolah Summertime slots. The jackpot pays out, on average, every 12 weeks.

As mentioned previously, the slot has already reset to its default 1 million mark, so even if it pays out sooner, the winner will enjoy a life changing win.
