1. Jon Heywood – £13.2 Million Win (₹159.81 crore)

1. Jon Heywood£13.2 Million Win on mega moolah

Not only yellow, I would also have one in blue, red, black, white, silver and gold. You know, a color for each day of the week. What colors would you go for?

In October 2015, the Mega Moolah jackpot had reached a higher amount than ever before. It was worth over 13 million British pounds and was begging to be won. Its prayers were answered when Jon Heywood – a solider and Formula 1 fan from the UK – took a spin on the Mega Moolah slot late into the night. 

Ironically, picking Mega Moolah was quite a random choice. Jon was watching the history channel and had just signed up to Betway’s casino to try his luck. Not knowing what to play, he uncaringly picked the game that had the biggest icon. 

He wasn’t really paying attention to anything. Jon was more interested in the program on the TV than what was happening in the game. At one point he looked over at the Mega Moolah slot and to his surprise, a bonus wheel had appeared. He figured this ought to be good, but had no idea what was in store for him.  

After just 25 minutes of signing up to Betway, Mr. Heywood had become the biggest Mega Moolah winner of all times. The jackpot hit and paid him a stunning £13.2 million. Way more than most of us make in a lifetime. Jon only played for £0.25 per spin (approximately ₹25), but as they say – size doesn’t matter.

John Heywood's multimillion record win screen on mega moolah

This is what Jon saw on his screen, how would you react?!

After the win, Jon mentioned that he couldn’t stop starring at the balance on his casino account; £13.2 freaking million! His heart was pounding. He couldn’t sleep and he didn’t know whether he should go to work the day after or not. He eventually went, casually acting like nothing special had happened. 

In an interview, Jon explained that he had great plans for the money. His dad was in a really bad shape; in need of a heart and lung transplant. Giving his dad the best possible treatment was the first thing he would do with his newfound riches. He said that he would trade all of the money he had won for his dad’s health if he could. Family always comes first. 

Currently driving a Fiat Punto, Mr. Heywood also mentioned that he would get himself a bit of an upgrade. A yellow Bentley Continental GT to be precise. He was also going to take his family on a cruise ship circulating the Mediterranean Sea. To celebrate the huge Mega Moolah win. 

Additionally, Jon had a pact with a childhood friend. If any of them ever won some money, they would help each other out. So, just like that, the good-hearted Jon gifted his friend £4 million. He figured that £4 million less wouldn’t make any difference to him. We all need a friend like that! 

Jon’s massive Mega Moolah win was documented in the Guiness book of records as the largest payout from an online slot. A record that has been beaten twice since then. 

Wanna play Mega Moolah at the same lucky casino as Jon Heywood on one? Don’t worry. Jon didn’t completely empty the machine it so there is more than enough to make your dreams come to life when you win!


2. Marcus Goodwin – CAD $11 Million Win (₹69.63 crore)

2. Marcus-Goodwin cad 11 million win on mega moolah

Just imagine the house you could buy if you won 69 crores. I, however, wouldn’t settle for a house, I’d go for a palace!

In November 2016, Christmas came early for the Goodwin family. While the Canadian Marcus wasn’t a stranger to casino games, he mentioned that he only played Mega Moolah every once in a while. It certainly wasn’t one of his favorite games. 

However, on the day of his win, the game had been very generous to him. As he continued to profit from the slot, he had played for about 1½ hours when it happened. The jackpot bonus got triggered and beyond all belief, the jackpot wheel stopped at the right position. At a position that made a flabbergasted Marcus an $11 million Mega Moolah winner. 

At first, he couldn’t believe it. It was simply too good to be true. Then he received a phone call from the casino he was playing at. They confirmed the life changing win. A staggering 11 million Canadian dollars were about to be shipped to Mr. Goodwin’s bank account. 

When Marcus was asked what to do with his riches, he said that he would get himself a big house with a lovely garden and a cottage to spend vacations in. He was also planning to spoil his family with Christmas presents, including a first-class trip to Africa. 


3. John Orchard – GBP £5.88 Million Win (₹62.20 crore)

Legends say that John still can be spotted with his wife at one of the many sunny beaches, enjoying the good life with a drink in his hand – thanks to just that the one spin on Mega Moolah.

Living in Lincolnshire, UK, John Orchard was quite surprised to see what Santa would bring him for Christmas in 2012. It was in December that this passionate bingo player took a spin on a slot known as Dark Knight. This game used to be linked to the great Mega Moolah jackpot. It isn’t today though. 

Mr. Orchard was not a big spender. He was spinning at the slot’s minimum stake of £0.3 (approximately ₹30). As has proven to be the case many times around, the Mega Moolah jackpot can be won at any stake. Winning a massive £5.88 million, John got to witness this at first hand. 

At the time being, this was the biggest Mega Moolah win ever recorded. Of course, comparing to today’s jackpot winnings, it is only peanuts. Nevertheless, we certainly wouldn’t say no to a £5.88 million Mega Moolah win and neither did the elderly John who had secured a fantastic retirement.  


4. Rawiri Pou – NZD $10 Million Win (₹58.61 crore)

4. Rawiri Pou NZD million win on mega moolah

I wouldn’t be surprised if Rawiri now has his own hobbit house, filled with gold and treasures that would even make the black dragon Smaug green of envy

From the small village of Matamata in New Zealand, a Mega Moolah winner was born in June 2016.  Rawiri Pou were used to seeing hobbit houses in his region, which were part of the Lord of the Rings filming. Nowadays, he’s also used to seeing big bundles of cash, which his $10 million win got him plenty of.  

The 27-year-old Rawiri was working in the fast-food industry when his life took an unexpected turn. He deposited $250 to a casino and managed to get this investment up to $1,500. Not a bad day. Then the unimaginable happened and the day became more like a dream. A lucky spin on Mega Moolah suddenly made Rawiri the 29th Mega Moolah winner to have won the game’s huge jackpot. 

In an interview, Mr. Pou expressed his great gratitude and said that the win would change his life. He couldn’t believe what had happened and was in total shock. He didn’t know what to do with the money as it was too much to grasp. However, he was certain that he would spoil his family with it. 

The responsible Rawiri was also eager to point out that his win was nothing but luck. He didn’t want to be seen as promoting gambling as he knew that many people in his region have a problem with it.   


5. Georgios M – EUR €6.3 Million Win (₹56.98 crore)

5. Georgios M EUR 6.3 million win on Mega Moolah

We do not know much about Georgios but we can imagine how his life must have changed after that 56 crore win from Mega Moolah. How would you imagine your life to be with that sum of money?

Waking up on the 11th of May 2009, this was supposed to be just another Monday for the Greek Georgios who was working hard as a father and independent business owner. Little did he know that Mega Moolah was about to strike again. 

The 36-year-old man was a regular casino player with a liking for slots. As the jackpot had reached a record high at the time, Georgios figured he would try his luck on Mega Moolah. Betting €5 per spin, this was the best decision of his life. 

Mesmerized by a screen that said “congratulations you have won €6,374,599.92”, the Greek father couldn’t believe his eyes after the bonus wheel in Mega Moolah had finished spinning. Before he knew it, he was a multi-millionaire. 

Georgios’s plans with the money? To invest some in his business and take his family on a holiday trip of a lifetime! 


6. Klaus E – USD $5.5 Million Win (₹31.40 crore)

6. klaus e usd 5.5 million win on mega moolah

Even for Klaus, all it took was just one lucky spin on Mega Moolah to get one ₹31.4 crore deposit on his bank account. How would you feel if that happen to you?

Why is a US phone number flashing on my screen? This was one of the irrational thoughts that were buzzing in the head of the Finish Klaus in April 2008. He was playing Mega Moolah at a stake of $0.5 when out of nowhere a jackpot bonus had added $5,556,753 to his casino account. 

Like many Mega Moolah winners, he couldn’t believe what had happened. Going from an ordinary working-class life to suddenly becoming economically independent must certainly be something special. 

After a phone call, the casino he was playing at had ensured him that the Mega Moolah win was real. It all became even more real when Klaus and his fiancé took a long trip to Sydney, Australia where his lucrative cheque was handed to him. 


7. Radoslaw M – USD $1.2 Million Win (₹7.61 crore)

You can have an godly wedding for all your friends and family with ₹7.61 crore on the bank. How would you plan yours, where would it be and how would you invite?

As you may remember, Betway was home to the biggest Mega Moolah win on our list. In October 2009, this casino was also where the Polish Radoslaw got his massive jackpot win of $1.2 million. 

When the win occurred and the 29-year-old guy saw the surreal numbers line up on his computer, he was afraid to touch anything. He was absolutely stunned and in lost for words. 

With the money, Radoslaw mentioned that he and his girlfriend would get married. We can only imagine what an amazing wedding and honeymoon this must have been.
