n 6 October 2015, Mega Moolah set a Guinness World Records title for the ‘Largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game’ when Betway UK player Jon Heywood won the GBP equivalent of €17,879,645.12 from a 25p spin.
The certificate presentation was followed by an exclusive Q&A session with Heywood, the player who won more than 52 million times his bet.
“It’s been a few months since the win, but I still can’t quite believe I won such a life-changing amount! And to officially become a Guinness World Records title holder is the icing on the cake. With my winnings I’ve enjoyed some nice holidays, bought a new car, ensured my family are looked after and invested wisely for the future. It’s been incredible,” said Jon Heywood, Guinness World Records title holder.
“It was fantastic to welcome Jon to our stand at ICE for the official Guinness World Records certificate handover. Having spent some time with him today, I can honestly say it couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. We’re proud to share the world record and look forward to creating our next jackpot millionaire,” remarked Roger Raatgever, Microgaming's CEO.
