Wednesday February 3,2016 : MICROGAMING JACKPOT WIN MAKES GUINNESS WORLD BOOK OF RECORDS
Largest Jackpot Payout in an Online Slot Machine Game.
Operator Betway UK, jackpot winner Jon Heywood and Microgaming received a certificate from the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS for the “Largest Jackpot Payout in an Online Slot Machine Game” which was presented at the ICE Totally Gaming exhibition this week.
Heywood won the GBP equivalent of a whopping Euro 17,879,645.12 jackpot on a paltry 25p wager back in October 2015.
“It’s been a few months since the win, but I still can’t quite believe I won such a life-changing amount!, Heywood said at a Q&A session held after the presentation. “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.”
“It was fantastic to welcome Jon to our stand at ICE for the official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS certificate handover,” Roger Raatgever, chief executive officer of Microgaming said. “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.”
