The largest wins in online video slots and slot machines
I want to say the following right away. The odds of the winning every of the below listed combinations are one in a million or maybe even billion. It`s not worth relying on them. Think of this information as entertaining the reading material, such as a review of an expensive car or a luxury 5-star hotel in Dubai. No need to wake up with the thought: "I have to win this jackpot because it happened to that guy so it should happen to me too”. You can win the jackpot but the chance of this happening is very small. More about this later in the article but first: The largest wins in slot machines.
Top 10 largest winnings in slots and game machines
10. Mega Moolah, $7,41 million, New-Zealand
We`re opening our hit-parade with a victory of a young New-Zealander in the summer of 2016. He played in the new casino called Casino land on one of the most famous slots in the world: Mega Moolah from Microgaming. This slot machine will be mentioned many times in this article, many people have become multimillionaires thanks to one lucky spin on this machine. Rawiri Pou promised his family many gifts, we can only imagine what they will get: new apartments or new slippers. It should be noted that this was the first jackpot that has been won in the Casinoland. Thank God for the fact that the casino does not hay to payout the whole amount themselves, a huge part of the jackpot is being paid by the manufacturer of the slot.
9. Dark Knight, $7,86 million, Australia
In June of 2016 the slot named Dark Knight will no longer be a part of the super-heroic machine line up from Microgaming – the license has ended. It’s a real shame. At least for one Australian this machine means a lot. In the spring of 2016 in the casino “Spin Palace Casino”, an Australian has won $7,86 million after one spin, winning the “mega” jackpot. It’s one of the four possibilities of the jackpot. The remaining ones are “mini”, “minor” and “major”. Once upon a time “Dark Knight” was a really popular slot, but recently the love for this game has faded. Especially since it’s no longer part of the Microgaming jackpot system.
8. Mega Moolah, $8,6 million, Greece
In 2009, there were less huge wins and that’s why the victory of the Greek Georgius looks fantastic. The 36 year old businessman pulled in the jackpot of Mega Moolah which consists of $8,6 million, this happened many years ago when the value of the dollar was worth even more than it does today. The winner said the following: “Do not lose faith; one moment can change your life completely”. Of course these are beautiful words but it’s easy to talk when you have a fortune in your pocket. By the way, the Greek played at the River Belle casino.
7. Hall of Gods, $7,6 million, Sweden
In 2012, a Swedish resident became richer by almost 8 million Euros. She played on the Unibet Online Casino, not on a machine from Microgaming but on one from NetEnt, Hall of Gods. The lady played with a betting rate of €50 which is a pretty solid rate if you ask us. The lucky winner has promised to pay off all of her debts, help out family members as well as buying a new car. By the way, it’s not the first time a jackpot has been won on a Unibet casino. Before this, there were 4 jackpots that have been won that are worth more than a million Euro.
6. Hall of Gods, $8,73 million, Sweden
In April 2015, a Betsson Casino jackpot has been won on the same slot from NetEnt: “Hall of Gods”. The name of the winner has not been revealed together with his age and location. There is a big chance that the winner was a Scandinavian, probably a Norwegian or a Swede (because Betsson specializes in those regions). Since the launch of the slot in 2010 “Hall of Gods” created many millionaires. Many of them are living in Sweden and neighboring countries.
5. Mega Moolah, $8,82 million, country unknown
In August 2016, someone under the nickname “D.P.” pulled in the biggest jackpot ever used on a mobile device. This happened in “Zodiac Casino” on the slot “Mega Moolah Mobile”. The most interesting part of this story is the way he won. During this period, the casino had a special deal going on: “80 chances of becoming a millionaire”. This deal could be played on machines for only $1! Never in his life has Mr. D.P. had a more profitable dollar.
4. Mega Fortune, $9,57 million, Sweden
In late November 2015, one 30 year old Swede has won the biggest jackpot of the Mega Fortune slot in the Folkeautomaten casino. The slot machine was created by NetEnt and is considered to be the “analogue” of Mega Moolah, only under a different brand name and a different look. Too often, this is where the multi-million winnings happen. According to the Swede, he was shocked at first but then rushed to wake his wife. He said he will pay the mortgage, treat him and his family on a great holiday and perhaps buy a new car.
3. Mega Fortune, €11,7 million, Norway
On one beautiful day (or rather night) in September 2011 at least two people could not fall asleep. The first one was a young Norwegian. He could not sleep and came down to play some online slots (a great way to fall asleep, you have to try it). As a result he could not fall asleep until morning because he won the biggest jackpot (at that time) in history of the online industry - €11,7 million! He played on the Mega Fortune slot from NetEnt. The second person, who also could not sleep until morning, became the owner of the “Betsson.com” casino. It doesn’t happen every day that people win a record amount of money worthy of the Guiness Book of Records status.
2. Mega Moolah, $17,2 million, Great-Britain
One of the most interesting stories regarding a huge win occurred in England in the beginning of October 2015. A 26 year old British soldier played a spin at the betting rate of 25 cents. He played the Mega Moolah slot on a casino from Betway. It appears to be nothing unusual (every soldier plays in a casino) but one spin has pulled in a win of $17,2 million! It`s hard to imagine: 25 cents turned into 17 million dollars… What an incredible amount! It would be different if the betting rates were also high but they weren’t. It only took a quarter of a dollar. Journalists quickly picked up this story and began dramatizing this by saying that the soldier would spend a significant portion of the amount on the treatment of his sick father. Of course this may be true but the story is most likely exaggerated. I mean about the sick father, not about the jackpot.
1. Mega Fortune, ~$24 million, Finland
“I cried and laughed”, - Tells a resident of Finland, a 40 year old man. In the beginning of 2013 he sat down to play on the Mega Fortune slot in the PAF casino. By the way, this organization is one of those who focus on the northern countries such as Finland. Just like the previous victory, this gambler played for 25 cents but pulled in the biggest amount in the history of online casinos. An estimated amount of $24 million!
Why do Scandinavians win jackpots?
Did you notice that at least half of the jackpot winners are residents of a Scandinavian country? Most of them were Swedish. Actually this is a well-known dilemma. It looks like there aren’t that many players in Sweden (a country of 10 million inhabitants), but they win jackpots regularly and it looks like this article was only about the large wins. What if we take a look at the statistics of wins that has amounts of around a hundred thousand dollars? This list will probably have a lot of suspicious facts. Learn more about the biggest wins on the following pages:
We can’t say anything concretely right now. Maybe the Swedes only play at large casinos with a big reputation that can issue huge amounts of the winnings. They also only play in licensed casinos on legit slots. Where did you play in 2009, 2010, 2012? The answer is probably Betson or another well-known operator. However, we do ask ourselves. Why didn’t any of our players win any of the jackpots? The questions regarding the swedes will remain open. There is a rumor that developers of “NetEnt” will favor their own countrymen. But haven’t the Swedes played the most of the games on the slots of the manufacturer? Aren`t they the first testers?
Do I need to aim for the jackpot?
Okay, let`s end the gossip talk. It`s better to discuss whether you should set up a goal of the winning the jackpot or getting the biggest wins of the game slots. Short answer: there is no need for that. For most of the players it`s only a dream that will remain a dream. Only a few players in the world can afford to deliberately play for the jackpot. To do this:
- Have a huge bankroll (money supply).
- Play all the time and on multiple casinos at the same time.
Neither the first nor the second option is possible for ordinary players. You don`t need this anyway. The possibility to win the jackpot is extremely small, one in a billion or even less. Even if you`re playing every day for the rest of your life, play the maximum amount of spins, skip eating and drinking and don`t sleep – you still will have the slightest chance to win the jackpot.
People tend to overestimate the probability of favorable events and diminish the likelihood of a negative outcome. This is their psychological defense. We cannot estimate the probability of 1 in 40,000,000. This seems like a lot but how much is it actually? That`s why it looks like a real possibility; we just need to have patience. Unfortunately, this is not true. Everyone can win the jackpot at any time – its pure coincidence. Maybe you will be the lucky one, who knows.
