According to Guinness World Records, the largest payout on an online slot machine game to date is currently £13,209,300, a jackpot won by British player Jon Heywood on 6th October 2015. The jackpot was won on Betway Casino and Microgaming’s five reel, twenty-five payline online slots game, Mega Moolah.
Several other online casino wins in the multi-millions have been recorded across the world, including an anonymous Australian player who won AU$10,423,223 in August 2016 on Microgaming’s Dark Knight slot game. The Dark Knight Slots game was based on Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight movie franchise, but has subsequently been discontinued due to licensing issues.
Possibly as a result of the attention this win earned, many other themed slot games are also currently available, styled on famous characters, the latest films and even 3D visuals. By attracting the attention of online players with these fun themes, the providers inevitably profit, meaning that payout size and also payout frequency can increase.
Microgaming’s Mega Moolah also paid out a multi-million dollar win to a Greek player at River Belle Online Casino in March 2009. Georgios M. won $8.6 million on the game, showing how high returns on progressive jackpot slots games can be.
The highest jackpot won on an online slots game played on a mobile device is, to date, $8.82 million, which was scooped by an anonymous player at Zodiac Casino. The player was logged as being on an iPad device signed up to a promotion requiring only a $1 deposit to play, and was playing Mega Moolah Mobile.
These enormous returns for online players have not only increased the credibility of online slots gaming but also brought a younger, modern audience to the previously traditional casino gambling scene. While land-based casino slots still pay out reliably high winnings, online providers can now compete, being able to offer equal payouts as their physical competitors.
