A lot of people had been looking eagerly at the massive Mega Moolah jackpot building up, but it has now been scooped up by a lucky winner from the UK.

British soldier Jonathan Heywood, who has served in Afghanistan, won the stunning £13,213,838.68 prize one night at the start of October. The 26 year old even kept his amazing win secret for a few days, continuing to go to work as normal.

The win on this Microgaming slot game at the Betway Casino and is a new world record for winning on an online slot. It narrowly beats the previous record of €17,861,813, set on the NetEnt Mega Fortune Progressive game in 2013.

When asked how we will go about spending all that money, Jonathan said that his father needs a heart and lung transport, so he will be making sure that he gets the best possible medical treatment now.

After this, he is going to take his family on a Mediterranean cruise and maybe splash out more to buy a Bentley Continental Grand Tourer.

He won this life changing prize on a just a 25p bet, choosing a 1p coin value across the 25 paylines on Mega Moolah. The progressive jackpot is won through a Spin Wheel feature that gets randomly activated during the bonus game.

Roger Raatgever is the CEO of Microgaming. He congratulated the lucky winner and said how pleased they are that their game brought about the biggest ever online progressive jackpot win. He also pointed out that their games have set several record wins since they first offered progressive jackpots in 1998.
