Microgaming makes it in the Guinness World Records

It maybe took a while, but finally the stunning payout on the Mega Moolah slot has made it into the Guinness World Records. After a thorough approval process with evidence submitted by both Betway and Microgaming, including ratification from eCOGRA, Guinness World Records has confirmed the win as a world record. And Microgaming now shares the Guinness World Records achievement with Betway Casino, and the luckiest soldier ever, Jonathan Heywood.

Mega Moolah Slot - Big Win

“I’m pleased to confirm that the Guinness World Records title for the largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game is €17,879,645.12, which was won by Jonathan Heywood, while playing Microgaming’s Mega Moolah on Betway's website. And Jon is certainly in the moolah now, thanks to his exceptional stroke of luck.” the spokesperson for Guinness World Records commented.

And people over at Microgaming are also extremely excited about this great piece of news. There is that constant battle in who’s going to payout more between Mega Moolah and Mega Fortune slot, since both games have high progressive jackpots. But now, Mega Moolah has definitely taken the lead.

“When news broke about Jon’s amazing jackpot win back in October, we were overjoyed – what an incredible and heart-warming story. We’ve achieved many industry records over the years, but to be officially awarded a Guinness World Records title is a special and proud moment for us all. It cements our position in providing the largest and most exciting progressive jackpot network in the industry. We can’t wait to hang the certificate in our office reception!” Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, added.
