TOP 10 ONLINE PROGRESSIVE SLOT JACKPOT WINS
Playing at online casinos can be a lot of fun, and outstandingly so for those lucky enough to hit a progressive jackpot. Whether it’s at slots, table games, blackjack or video poker, there are many players that have struck it rich, having claimed significantly large, life-changing amounts.
The thrill of landing a progressive jackpot winning combination at slots or being dealt the rarest hand in blackjack right from the cosiness of one’s home has never been bigger.
What happens with slot progressive jackpots is that every time a jackpot reaches major heights, the buzz surrounding the news helps push the jackpot even higher. Many among the growing number of players that learn the news, decide to follow suit and join the fellow players in trying their luck.
Here is an up-to-date list of the top 10 online progressive slot jackpot wins of all time.
As you can see, it’s topped by a Mega Moolah jackpot. Recently, young British soldier Jon Heywood won the largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game, thus establishing a new Guinness World Record, with a win corresponding to the ginormous amount of £13,209,300 (€17,879,645, $20,062,600).
No wonder that the Microgaming’s Mega Moolah game is known as “The Millionaire Maker” among online casino players then!
Having said that, NetEnt’s slots Mega Fortune and Hall of Gods have proved quite successful when it comes to the number of large jackpots awarded, which in turn keeps increasing the popularity of these games among online casino players.

Many of the top 10 entries are from as recent as 2015, so this list would have looked a lot different just a year ago or so.
Among the previous top then we find another Microgaming slot linked to the Mega Moolah jackpot network, i.e. The Dark Knight; a fortunate UK player took home no less than €7,310,270 (£5,883,044) in December 2012. In March 2009, Georgios from Greece won €6,374,599 at Mega Moolah, while in October 2013 a Scottish fisherman claimed the equivalent of €6,413,972 at Hall of Gods.
