Online Jackpot Win Claims World Record

History was officially made this week at one of the UK's best online casinos, after it was confirmed that a record online jackpot win was the biggest ever made.

UK online casino site Betway UK confirmed that their recent winner, a Jon Heywood, did indeed take the mantle of biggest online jackpot winner, after his 17m Euro jackpot win was confirmed by the highest authority - the Guinness World Records.

The certificate confirms that the online jackpot, won by the Brit for a mere 25p per spin, was indeed the biggest - all 17.8m Euros of it!

Heywood was recently at the online casino industry exhibition for a Q&A session, where he said of his win...

'It’s been a few months since the win, but I still can’t quite believe I won such a life-changing amount!'

'To officially become a World Record holder is the icing on the cake. With my winnings I’ve enjoyed some nice holidays, bought a new car, ensured my family are looked after and invested wisely for the future. It’s been incredible.'

Jon Heywood won the life changing amount after seeing an advert on the TV for Betway Casino - it prompted him to sign up for Betway, deposited some money and start playing the online casino jackpot slot, Mega Moolah.

A few spins and 25p later, the symbols he could never have dreamed of clicked into place - and with it the online progressive jackpot amount that is powered by the best online casinos in the UK.

A spokesman for the company behind the online casino slot, Microgaming, said of the world record confirmation...

'It was fantastic to welcome Jon to our stand at ICE for the official World Record certificate handover.'

'Having spent some time with him today, I can honestly say it couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. We’re proud to share the world record and look forward to creating our next jackpot millionaire.'

Mega Moolah is played at the best UK casinos online, where every spin adds to the progressive jackpot amount.
