Top 10 online jackpot wins of 2018

7 January 2019

It was a good year to be a slot player.

There were so many massive wins at the slot machines in 2018 that we had to break them up into categories. Two weeks ago we took a look at the top 10 land-based slot jackpot wins of 2018. This week, we are going through some of the biggest payouts for online slot players in 2018.

10. €131k jackpot at Casumo
Casumo player Ida from Sweden landed a €131,546.60 jackpot win with a €0.40 bet on 27 September 2018.

Ida was playing the progressive NetEnt slot Divine Fortune with €0.40 spins when she found herself staring at the mega jackpot. She was playing at Casumo using her mobile phone when she managed to get into the bonus round and scoop up the winning amount.

"Our new dog kept me awake late in the evening so I just stayed in bed watching TV and playing on my phone. Somehow I got into the bonus game and pressed the button quickly," said Ida.

9. €202,967 win at CasinoLuck
Jan-Erik, a 24-year-old player from Finland, won a staggering €202,967 on a €1 bet while playing the popular jackpot slot Divine Fortune.

This jackpot back in August led the online casino to run a special Hit the Jackpot Mega promotion.

8. Mega Casino pays out £1.5 million
A player at Mega Casino added a whopping £1.5 million to his bank account after hitting the jackpot while playing Microgaming’s Major Millions video slot in late August.

The U.K.-based player had only just signed up to Mega Casino and was playing with £3 per bet from his mobile device when the monster win landed on his 454th spin of the game, turning him into an instant millionaire.

7. £1.6 million winner at Mecca Bingo
A Dagenham bingo player hit the ultimate jackpot after winning a huge £1.6 million from a stake of just £.40 while playing on Mecca Bingo.

The player, who has asked to remain anonymous, scooped the win from only one spin during a spontaneous game of Mighty Tusk, a game they chose entirely at random.

Being a member online for some years, the lucky winner has experienced many wins over the course of their membership, but none quite as large as this life-changing sum.

Mecca Bingo’s lucky member said, “I’m still in shock; I haven’t slept a wink since winning! You hear about others winning this kind of money in the news but you never think it could happen to you. I’m a single parent to five children, and this incredible amount of money is certainly going improve my life, but more importantly, theirs!”

6. Bethard mobile player hits €2.2 million
A Bethard Casino mobile slots player in Sweden unwrapped the ultimate early Christmas present by winning SEK 23.2 million (€2.2 million) on Yggdrasil’s Empire Fortune progressive jackpot. The massive win came from a €4 bet.

This jackpot just came a couple of weeks after the supplier’s record jackpot of €7.8 million on Joker Millions was won.

Yggdrasil’s two progressive jackpots, Empire Fortune and Jackpot Millions, have now rewarded a total of €29 million since 2015.


5. €2.75 million Hall of Gods jackpot
A player in Finland scooped a payout of close to €2.75 million from a mobile spin of just €2 while playing on Paf in early July.

In addition to the Hall of Gods payout, the lucky winner gets an additional €350,000 through the NetEnt Mega Million campaign. This campaign awards an additional sum of money to the winner of the Hall of Gods or Mega Fortune mega jackpot.

This added to recent jackpots of €1.4 million and €4.25 million that were paid out to players via NetEnt’s Arabian Nights and Mega Fortune Dreams games respectively.

4. Record $3 million won on Millionaires Island
Millionaires Island, a $1 million minimum guaranteed progressive jackpot slot game, shipped out $3,047,961.04 to PokerStars Casino player "Anchor72" at the end of May. At the time, the jackpot was the highest ever to have been paid out on a PokerStars Casino in-house developed game.

Millionaires Island is linked to the same progressive jackpot prize pool as Stars Mega Spin and Matchday Millions. The number of millionaires made on PokerStars Casino’s in-house developed games is now eight, for a total of $15.5 million in prizes. PokerStars Casino has made 12 millionaires overall, for a total of $23.6 million.

3. $4 million jackpot at PokerStars Casino
An incredible $4 million jackpot, the largest ever at PokerStars Casino, was won by a man from Lower Saxony, Germany, on the slot game Mega Fortune in October.

After coming home from work late, "StatisticPro" decided to unwind by playing some slot games. Wagering just $2.50, the reels kept on spinning, and he was astounded when the jackpot landed on $4 million.

“I was numb and disbelieved for a few minutes,” said the chess fan, speaking of the moment his life changed forever.


2. Bingo.com player wins £4 million
A 49-year-old Brit claimed a windfall of £4,082,246.09, all from an 80-pence online casino bet. The spin was landed in October on NetEnt’s Mega Fortune Dreams while the player was playing on online bingo and casino site Bingo.com.

The winner said, “You hear about people winning these sorts of multi-million-pound jackpots, but you never really believe it as it never happens to anyone you know. And now it’s happened to me! It’s so unreal.”

1. LeoVegas player wins record €7.8 million
A lucky player celebrated after winning SEK 80 million (€7.8 million) on Yggdrasil’s flagship progressive jackpot slot, Joker Millions.

On the evening of 9 November, the largest ever jackpot fell out to a Swedish player spinning on LeoVegas from a mobile phone. Betting 5 SEK, equal to about 50 cents, on Yggdrasil’s Joker Millions on the LeoVegas mobile platform this player hit the big jackpot.

The jackpot had reached a record size at an astonishing €7.8 million and is the largest win on Joker Millions to this date.
