New World Record Pokies Win Confirmed

The Guinness Book of World Records has confirmed that a new record has been set for the largest jackpot payout on an online pokie machine. The confirmation came after Betway Casino and Microgaming sent in a submission in October that their latest big winner had become the new record holder.

Jon Heywood was playing the popular Microgaming developed online pokie game, Mega Moolah when he hit the jackpot for a whopping €17,879,645. He was playing at Betway Casino at the time of his win.

“I’m pleased to confirm that the Guinness World Records title for the largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game (nominal) is €17,880,900 ($20,066,800; £13,213,838) which was won by Jon Heywood while playing Mega Moolah on Betway’s website,” announced a spokesperson from Guinness World Records. “And Jon is certainly in the moolah now, thanks to his exceptional stroke of luck.”

In order to update the records and award a new record to this win, both Betway and Microgaming had to submit extensive evidence to Guinness World Records to support their claim that the win was larger than the previous record. eCOGRA also submitted evidence to support the claim.

The evidence was reviewed by a panel at Guinness World Records and concluded that his win was in fact the largest ever recorded. There are many aspects that needed to be taken into account including the lack of records from the relatively new industry as well as the complications of different jackpots being paid out in different currencies at different exchange rates.

The previous record was held by a Finnish player who won a €17,866,000 jackpot on the Mega Fortune pokie game by Net Entertainment. The new record is €13,000 larger than the previous record.
