Famous wins from Online Casinos
From Albert Tuman, October 2017
If you've ever gambled online, then you know that it's a great way to pass the time. But, there's more to it than that - some lucky people have become millionaires from engaging in this activity.
Does this sound too good to be true? Well, it's not. And, as proof, below we present some of the most famous big wins on online casinos.
Mega Moolah shelled out millions of dollars
Created by Microgaming (the prestigious software provider) the Mega Moolah Progressive jackpot has proven to be quite rewarding for online casino players in the past. So far, this game has distributed millions of dollars to lucky players from all over the world.
One of those lucky players, Georgios M. won almost $9 million in 2009 while playing at the River Belle online casino. Because of his love for slots, this Grecian 36-year-old business owner was the recipient one of the largest casino jackpots at the time.
Hall of God's dishes out almost $9 million
NetEnt is known as one of the bigwigs in the online gaming industry and, they've solidified this reputation even more with their Hall of Gods game.
This particular game has changed the lives of so many people. But, the latest noteworthy jackpot happened just a couple of months ago - in June of this year. This is when a 47-year-old Norwegian player won almost 9 million dollars while playing at the Folkenautomaten Casino on his (or her) desktop computer. This popular Norse mythology themed slot has, so far, paid out over 90 million dollars to its lucky players.
Hall of God's for the win
In 2015, Hall of God's paid out another $8 million jackpot to a Betsson Casino player. Not one to enjoy the limelight, this winner has chosen to remain anonymous. As such, there's no information available about their location, age, or gender.
Hall of God's for the win... again
November 2012 proved to be a miracle month for a lucky Swedish woman. While playing on the Hall of Gods slot machine, she won almost 8 million pounds at the Unibet Online Casino. As you can imagine, she was a little dazed and confused after her huge win. Last we heard from her, she planned to use the money to pay off her mortgage and other loans in full. She was also planning a family trip to Thailand and contemplating the purchase of a new car.
Big win on a mobile device
In August 2006, a player with the initials DP, hit what was (at the time) one of the largest jackpots ever on a mobile device. Like another winner on this list, this player is wary of the limelight. So, his or her location, name, or even gender was never revealed. We're not even 100% about what game the money was won on.
However, it was reported that the jackpot was hit playing the Mega Million Mega Moolah mobile game at the Zodiac Casino. Further, as was revealed by the operator, the player was signed up to play the casinos' 8 chances to become a millionaire promotion, which required a 1 pound deposit. The only thing we do know for sure is that the player won almost 9 million dollars playing on an iPad.
Playing on online casinos is more than just a fun way to pass the time, it can reap huge rewards. And, as is shown in the example above, it can happen even when playing on mobile casino apps.
