Real money slots offer the chance to win some serious cash but real money PROGRESSIVE slots offer jackpots that are genuinely life-changing and earlier in October, one incredibly lucky English slots fan hit the biggest online slots win ever recorded when he landed an amazing $20m progressive jackpot!
Playing on Mega Moolah, a slot powered by Microgaming (who sadly don’t allow US players), Jon Heywood landed an amazing world record online slots win from a spin costing just 25p, which is less than 40 cents! We make that a return of 50 million times his stake, which it’s safe to say is not the sort of win you’ll get betting on sports, at the roulette table, playing blackjack or, indeed, on any casino game other than a progressive slot.
Heywood, 26, from Cheshire in the north of England, is a soldier with the British forces and as an Afghanistan veteran it’s safe to say he deserves his big win as much as the next guy. He’s determined to keep his feet on the ground though and actually kept his stroke of luck secret for three whole days, even turning up to work the day after he landed the $20m win!
His number one priority is his family, and top of his list of things to spend his winnings on is his dad, who required a heart and lung transplant and is seriously ill. Money can’t buy happiness, nor health, but it certainly helps both and we’re sure that having $20m in the bank can only make things better for the soldier’s father.
Heywood has also pledged to take his family on a luxury holiday, with a Mediterranean cruise in the offing, whilst he’s not forgetting himself entirely.
“I’m trying not to get carried away and I really don’t know what else I’m going to buy with the money. Apart from a yellow Bentley Continental GT. I never even dreamed of driving a Bentley, let alone owning one. I’ve got a Fiat Punto at the moment.”
Safe to say he can now afford whatever car he wants and if you want to try and emulate our English friend, note that a number of our partner (US-friendly) casinos feature amazing progressive slots from Realtime Gaming.
