Microgaming Sets New World Record with Mega Moolah Slot

Microgaming has another accolade to celebrate after it was officially confirmed that their Mega Moolah slot produced a new Guinness World Record for the largest jackpot payout from an online slot. UK soldier Jon Heywood was playing the game in early October and had made just a 25p bet after just seven minutes of play when he won the huge progressive jackpot, which had soared to £13.2 million (€17.9 million).

The previous record was set by a Finnish man who scooped €17.8 million on the Mega Fortune slot by NetEnt in late January 2013. While it was immediately clear that Heywood’s win had surpassed that amount, it was not confirmed as the current world record until after Microgaming and other online gaming organisations had submitted the appropriate paperwork to Guinness World Records.

The CEO of Microgaming, Roger Raatgever, commented on the news in a press release, saying that “We’ve achieved many industry records over the years, but to be officially awarded a Guinness World Records holder is a special and proud moment for us all...we can’t wait to hang the certificate in our office reception.”

The Mega Moolah jackpot currently stands at £2.7 million and is still climbing. If you’re ready to try out this great slot to see if you could pick up a huge payout that might smash the record in your area, you can play Mega Moolah at 32Red Casino.
