world record jackpot win

An unnamed Belgian player won a world record jackpot last week, one worth €19.4 million ($30.25 million). The player enjoyed the world record jackpot win on Microgaming’s Absolootly Mad™ Mega Moolah online pokie.

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, won the jackpot at Napoleon Sports & Casino Online. It is one of the first Belgian based operators in casino games and sports betting.

The world record jackpot winner revealed their win came on the very last spin of their playing session. They were playing for €15 ($23.40) per spin at the time of hitting the jackpot.

“The feeling at that moment is just indescribable. At first, you can hardly believe it, and I think it will take a long time to sink in completely. It was on my last spin that it happened. I read how last week a Napoleon player won a multi-million jackpot, and, of course, I started dreaming about it as well. But to actually live this moment, I feel so lucky.”

Napoleon Sports & Casino Online paid out €2 million ($3.11 million) a week before this world record jackpot win. Another player clinched the Wowpot jackpot last week.

Napoleon CEO Delighted to Pay the World Record Jackpot Win

Tim De Borle is the CEO of Napoleon Sports & Casino Online. He is delighted to pay out a world record jackpot win.

“This is mind-blowing! Last week we were already over the moon when a player won our €2 million Wowpot. But to have a second winner on our platform, for a world-record-breaking amount, is just sensational and highly exceptional. This is a unique moment in betting history worldwide. This is also the greatest thrill in the history of Napoleon. Everybody is filled with joy with this fantastic milestone.”

A win of this size is life-changing, and De Borle realises the player needs some guidance. The lucky winner is receiving advice on how to deal with their world record jackpot win.

Microgaming CEO, John Coleman, is equally as delighted one of his pokies triggered this win.

“We’re absolootly delighted to see Mega Moolah make history once again with its latest record-breaking win, and what an incredible win it is – €19.4 million! That’s the largest jackpot payout in an online pokies of all time. Congrats to the player, and well done to Napoleon Sports and Casino on their second Mega jackpot win on our network in as many weeks.”

Previous Record Smashed

The latest world record jackpot win blew the previous largest out of the water. British online casino player Jonathan Hayward found himself in the Guinness Book of World Records in October 2015. Hayward won the Mega Moolah jackpot and banked €17,879,645.12 at betway. Amazingly, Hayward played for £0.25 ($0.45) per spins when he triggered the massive win.

Hayward’s own world jackpot win broke the previous record by €18,000 ($28,052).
