If you were to ask a casino player about their greatest aspiration, you would likely hear, “To win the jackpot!”
However, for the majority of them, this usually turns out to be a dream. Only a small percentage end up winning big.
Most winners choose to be anonymous, possibly for security purposes, but some are known. Here are people who have won the big online casino prize.
Fantastic Finnish Fortune
In 2013 a 40 something Finnish man scooped a whopping $21million for a 25 cent wager.
This was another progressive slot win but this time on the NetEnt favourite, Mega Fortune. He was playing at the PAF online casino in Scandinavia when the life changing win happened.
He is reported to have laughed and cried with shock and surprise when he realized what had happened. However, he chose to remain anonymous.
Betway British Buck Buster
Jonathon Heywood was a 26 year old British army soldier when he won €17.8million at the Betway online casino in 2015.
The British stiff upper lip was abandoned and Jonathon was delighted to share his good news.
He struggled to come to terms with the win saying everything felt ‘surreal’ but was thrilled to be able to help with care for his sick father.
What game? Mega Moolah again!
Sleepless in Norway
Imagine you can’t sleep so to pass the time you play a few games and end up $13.47million richer by morning.
That is precisely what happened to a Norwegian chap in 2011.
He was playing at Betsson online casino. He was unable to sleep for the rest of the night so great was his surprise.
Game? Mega Fortune!
The largest win at a mobile online casino was won by the mysterious ‘D.P.’ who, in 2016, 2on $8.82 million playing on an iPad.
We still don’t know if D.P. was a man or a woman, where they were from or how old they were.
All we know is they were playing Mega Moolah at the Zodiac mobile casino when they struck gold.
Win and Tell?
So if you won a fortune, would you tell?
Or would you rather stash the money away and keep it secret.
It seems most of our online winners don’t tell the world but slip quietly away to spend their money. What would you do?
Also it seems that Mega Fortune and Mega Moolah are the luckiest pokie machines to play on if one is chasing the big jackpot!
