Mega Moolah Jackpot into the Guinness World Records
A Guinness World Records spokesperson said: “I’m pleased to confirm that 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 which was won by Jonathan Heywood, while playing Mega Moolah. And Jonathan is certainly in the moolah now, thanks to his exceptional stroke of luck.”
It is a notable achievement to get the record ratified by Guinness World Records, the leading authority on record-breaking, across the globe.
In order to verify the authenticity of the claim that Mega Moolah in fact is the biggest win ever, extensive evidence had to be submitted to Guinness World Records. Further confirmation from eCOGRA, the leading independent and internationally approved testing agency of casino games, was also submitted as evidence.
That evidence was submitted for review by a panel at Guinness World Records who agreed that the win was indeed a world record and will be acknowledged as such.
It is yet to be confirmed if the Mega Moolah jackpot will be included in the Guinness Book of World Records due of sheer number, over 6,000, of records approved per year by Guinness World Records. Only half of the records are included in the book and the remaining can be found in digital format at Guinnessworldrecords.com.
