Winter 2016: An Exceptional Mobile Win in the UK
The biggest win in the winter of 2016 belonged to a lucky Glaswegian librarian, who not only managed to hit a whopping €5.89 million on Playtech's Jackpot Giant slot at Gala Casino, but also set an iGaming record at that moment. Namely, the win in question, which occurred on a mobile phone, was in fact UK's largest mobile slot jackpot up to that point!
Spring 2016: An Incredible Progressive Jackpot Win
The spring of 2016 turned one lucky player into a bona fide Richie Rich when they hit an amazing €7 million on one of the most popular Microgaming slots – the Mega Moolah slot. This progressive slot has been known to turn many a regular player into a millionaire overnight, so no wonder it was this lucky Spin Palace Casino player's choice!
Summer 2016: A Record-breaking Jackpot Hit on an iPad
In the summer of 2016 it was the same Microgaming slot that made one player extremely happy, only this time the jackpot was hit on an Apple iPad. Not only was it a huge jackpot win, but it actually broke the record and went down in history as the largest ever mobile jackpot win. The lucky player snagged their fantastic €8 million at Zodiac Casino.
Autumn 2016: A Whopping Jackpot Win on a Popular NetEnt Slot
What Mega Moolah is to Microgaming, the Mega Fortune slot is to NetEnt. One of the Mega Fortune variants, the Mega Fortune Dreams slot, was the progressive that paid out €4 million this autumn. How did this one go down? Well, the winner was spinning the reels at Maria Casino in his home in Sweden and we are pretty sure he was soon able to start planning a very stress-free future. Lucky, isn't he?
