A Swedish player known as Niclas L. has hit the headlines this week, after winning an impressive 23,142 Krona (just over £2,300) after his first ever online slot deposit. The lucky punter opted to play the ever-popular Mega Moolah online slot developed by gaming giants Microgaming, as he thought it seemed simple to play and easy to understand. The player will now go down in history as one of the luckiest online casino users in history.
Whilst it's certainly a sizable sum for a first-time win, it pales in comparison when compared to the potential £1,000,000 jackpot that's available from Microgaming’s five reel, 25 pay-line slot. According to the game's official site, the biggest British win in recent history was recorded by Lincolnshire man John Orchard, who scooped an enormous £5.88 million in December 2012. John was playing the Dark Knight video slot, which is tied into the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot network. The player proved he had the golden touch after managing to make his fortune with a bet of just 30p, triggering the random jackpot and making an unbelievable return of 19,600,000 x his original stake.
The most recent jackpot winner hailed from Germany, where a player was able to rake in a total prize of €3,036,433.21 in May this year. The Mega Moolah network of online slots has been paying out the random progressive jackpot for over 10 years, making instant millionaires out of those lucky enough to trigger the prize.
