Record Breaking Online Casino Wins

Though every online casino player hopes to hit it big, most don’t. However, there have been some record breaking wins at online casinos.

In February of 2015 an online casino player in New Jersey, using BetFair Casino, he won a jackpot worth $1.5 million on Let It Ride. No other online casino in New Jersey had ever paid out such a high jackpot. The man allegedly became a millionaire thanks to playing a Royal Flush made up of Diamonds. In order to win this amount, the man played three rounds of Poker at $500 per round. He also had a $500 bonus from the casino that he wagered in order to win the jackpot.

Prior to the man’s win the biggest jackpot given away at a New Jersey online casino was $1.3 million in 2014. The jackpot was won by a New Jersey woman who set the state record for biggest online casino wins, prior to the man’s win. She won the jackpot on the game Millionaire Genie.

In October of 2015 a U.K. man played the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot slot machine game at Betway Casino and won £13,213,838.68 million. The man who won is a 26 year old soldier and lives in Cheshire, England. This win set a world record for the biggest online casino win.

Another progressive jackpot slot machine game, Mega Fortune, currently holds the Guinness World Record for paying out the highest winning of any online casino in history. At the time the record was set, the amount won was €17,861,813. The conversion of British Pounds to Euros dictated that due to the exchange rate the day the money was won, it was the equivalent of €17,879, 546.

In London in 2009, a man won the progressive jackpot on the Heavy Metal slot machine game at the Slotland online casino. The man won €150,980, the equivalent of $200,111. This win broke a record that had previously been set by a Canadian man playing the Treasure Box game at Slotland online casino. The Canadian man won $195,083 on the game. In December of 2008 a Slotland player won $110,125 on the video poker game Striking 7s, which was the record for a win for any player at that casino, at the time.

In 2010 a player at Inter Casino, an online casino based in the U.K won a €100000 jackpot on the scratch card game Money Farm. This win was among the biggest wins a player had ever gotten from a scratch card.

In 2013 a player in Finland won a record breaking €17,861, 813; which equals £15,143,600. The anonymous man played the progressive slot machine game, Mega Fortune. He won the jackpot prize when he placed a bet of €0.25.

These record breaking wins prove that online casinos can be just as profitable, if not more profitable, than any land based casino. Many players prefer online casinos because of these large progressive jackpots that they see other players winning.
