Over the years, a lot has been heard of slot winnings in the world of gambling. Somehow, these wins always make the headlines whenever they happen, either because of the thrill of winning or due to the enormous amount of money involved. This piece is going to be looking at some of the biggest slot wins of all time.
Megabucks – $39 million
When it comes to all kinds of entertainment, Vegas comes top. Little wonder the biggest slot payout in the history of gambling took place right at the well known Excalibur Casino in Las Vegas. A software engineer aged 25 years from Los Angeles cashed out $39 million, the highest slot jackpot ever won.
Megabucks – $35 million
A waitress identified as Cynthia Jay-Brennan was paid $34.9 million by Megabucks, placing it second on the list of the biggest slot wins of all time.
Megabucks – $27.5 million
The winner of this $27.5 million jackpot, a retired flight attendant, mistakenly placed a bet of $300 instead of her intended $100. Appears the winner has a lucky charm, as she reportedly already won $700,000 from a Fortune slot before the big win.
Megabucks – $22 million
It is very obvious from this list that Megabucks is the slot with the highest number of the biggest jackpot wins in history. In 2002, the sum of $22 million and of course, some change was won by a 64-year-old lady identified as Johanna Huendl. The story has it that she was on her way to get breakfast when she decided to stop by the slot to have a spin. And was she lucky! What other breakfast could taste better than $22 million?
Megabucks – $21 million
Megabucks has made another person rake in millions within seconds of taking a spin. This time, a business consultant placed a bet of $10 and cashed out big time, winning $21 million. It was gathered that this big win was also the 49-year old’s first-ever spin.
Mega Fortune – €17.9 million
$17.9 million was won on a Mega Fortune slot by a Finnish slot player who staked 25 cents! Unbelievable, but true.
Mega Moolah – $16 million
Mega Moolah should be among the top names that come to your mind whenever the biggest online jackpots are talked about. This slot paid the sum of $16 million to a British soldier identified as Jon Heywood. The amazing part? The 26-year-old staked a bet of just 25 pence! So far, there are no records of any winner of Mega Moolah in India. Maybe you could be the first one?
Mega Fortune – $13 million
The story of how the whopping sum of $13 million jackpot was won still sounds incredible. A student in one of the universities in Norway opted to make use of some of the free spins granted by the slot, as an escape to his insomnia. Insomnia never came at a better time!
Megabucks – $12.7 million
Whoever said that celebrations don’t bring some luck with them surely haven’t heard of this woman who placed a bet with $6 and cashed out $12.7 million at the birthday celebration of her niece which took place at Aria resort.
