In the beginning of the December 2015, one of the biggest online casinos Betway went in history as it paid out the biggest jackpot in the history of online gambling - €17,879,645. The name of the lucky owner is John Heywood, he played at Mega Moolah developed by Microgaming.
The jackpot was hit on October, 6th 2015. There is also an interesting fact that this jackpot is just €18,000 bigger then the previous one, which was hit three years ago by the student from Finland on Mega Fortune slot by NetEnt.
We should notice that John was making bets of €0,25. This is the proof of the fact that jackpots happen not just at the high bet levels.
The historical moment was commented by the head of Microgaming Roger Raatveger:
'We are crazily happy for Heywood as his win is our win as well. Our games gave away huge jackpots earlier, but this one is different. We will soon receive the Guinness Record Book certificate to our office which will show the high status of our company'.
'We are glad this jackpot was won in our casino. Admittance of the integrity of the win ways by the independent commission tells that we are one of the best in online gambling market at the moment,' - says Betway press-secretary Alan Arger.
