The biggest winners at online casinos around the world

Undoubtedly, an added casino bonus to playing online casino games is the chance to win big with the option of progressive jackpots. These are pretty common place at online casinos and work by linking a single jackpot game to an often large network of numerous online casino games. As a result of this, the jackpot rises as each bet is placed on any game within the network, with the jackpot then having to potential to increase to some of the most unbelievable jackpots ever seen. Now, let’s meet some of the lucky winners who managed to take advantage of these growing jackpots!

In 2016, on the 17th of June, New Zealander Rawiri Pou logged onto his favourite progressive Slots game with no idea that he was about to walk away with NZ$10,144,395.82! Rawiri could not believe his luck when his win fell into place, saying, “I still can’t believe this is real. I’ve been in shock since I won and it is literally going to change my life. There is so much my family and I can do with this money and it couldn’t have come at a better time. We are so overwhelmed and happy.” We bet you are, Rawiri! It’s not every day you become the local millionaire!

February 2012 saw one lucky woman from Sweden quickly become the biggest online casino jackpot winner in the country, her total winnings coming to a huge €7.6 million whilst playing a run-of-the-mill slot game. This win was the biggest that the site had ever seen, setting a record in its own right!

Another case of a session at an online casino gone right is mystery player “D.P” who, in August 2016, won the largest progressive online jackpot ever before seen when playing via a mobile device, from depositing only £1.  The player chose to keep their age and location a secret, however we can reveal that the player was female. Girl power! 

Next time you find yourself struggling to sleep, why not take a leaf out of this young man’s book. On September 24th, 2011, a young guy in Norway found himself wide awake although he had been trying to sleep, so he grabbed his laptop and decided to have a few spins.  Well, one spin led to another and there he was with €11.7 million coming his way after hitting one phenomenal jackpot. 

In October 2015, the United Kingdom had its share of the luck. Well, to be more specific, Jonathon Heywood of little old Cheshire was the one that received the thrill of a win – a whopping £13.2 million. Playing at just 25p per spin, it’s no wonder the 26-year old was left speechless as digits began rolling in. Think of all the tea and scones you can buy with that lot!

Finally, we come to one of the biggest online wins recorded to date. In 2013, somewhere in Finland, an unsuspecting man in his late 40’s logged onto his usual online casino and began to spin the reels at a respectable 25 cent per bet. As his gameplay went on, no one could have guessed that it would result in an eye-watering €17,861,800. As previously mentioned, this win is widely considered to be the largest online casino jackpot win ever, with the screen-recorded session available for public viewing on Youtube. 


So, go and grab your piece of action, with a chance to be feature in the new top list of jackpot winners, should you be so lucky!
