An unnamed Belgian player broke the online jackpot record with a €19.4 million win on Microgaming’s Absolootly Mad Mega Moolah at Napoleon Sports & Casino – the second player in two weeks to break into the top five all-time online casino jackpots.

The biggest slots win in online casino gaming history came from a €15 bet, shattering the previous record by over €600,000.

“The feeling at that moment is just indescribable,” the player said. “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.”

After Microgaming’s Mega Moolah jackpot recently passed the €15 million mark, online casino players were expecting a large payout. Napoleon has already had a memorable spring, with a €2 million WOW Pot jackpot win last month.

“We’re absolutely 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 slot of all time. Congrats to the player, and well done to Napoleon Sports & Casino on their second Mega jackpot win on our network in as many weeks, said John Coleman, CEO at Microgaming.

5 biggest online slots wins in history

The win in Belgium bumps the previous online slots jackpot record of €18.9m off top spot. That record was set three years ago when another anonymous player triggered a life-changing payout with a 75 cent bet on an Android mobile.

It was only in April this year that Microgaming’s WOW Pot paid out an eye-watering €17.5m from an online slot at 32Red Casino. That win was the fourth biggest in history before this most recent windfall and tipped the total amount of jackpot wins paid out on Microgaming software to over €1.3bn.

How progressive jackpots work

The Mega Moolah jackpot is a progressive jackpot that is applied to numerous Microgaming slot machines, that are played at the best online casinos.

Every time a player makes a bet, a small percentage of their wager is added to the cumulative progressive jackpot. Therefore, as players from various casinos spin on their individual slots, the combined jackpot steadily grows. Eventually, a player strikes lucky and wins the lot! 

At that stage, the progressive jackpot falls back to a minimum amount and the accumulation begins again. The Microgaming jackpot Mega Moolah starts at £2m (€2.3m) and on average pays out an €8.3m jackpot every 41 days.
