Isle of Man is a popular online slot game from Microgaming. It recently was in the news after it set a Guinness World Record for dispensing the largest jackpot payout for an online slot game.
The lucky winner of the jackpot was Jonathon Heywood from the UK. This 26-year old is a corporal and has just returned after serving a tenure in Afghanistan.
Mr. Heywood won the progressive jackpot while playing on Betway Casino, where the slot is known as Mega Moolah. He won a whopping €17,879,645.12 on 6 October 2015.
Mega Moolah at Betway Casino is already renowned for being a millionaire maker, as many slot aficionados have won the jackpot. However, this is the biggest ever jackpot win and hence, rightly deserves a place in Guinness World Records.
Being the largest jackpot win in the world there was only one thing to do. The evidence of the win and subsequent payment were certified and then submitted by Microgaming and Betway to the Guinness World Records. It also included a ratification from eCOGRA.
Microgaming is the largest maker of online slots in the world, and was instrumental in introducing the first ever genuine online casino in 1994. Now, it has added another feather in its cap with this huge jackpot win and payout.
The CEO of Microgaming is Roger Raatgever, and he too expressed happiness at Mr. Heywood winning the jackpot from Betway’s Mega Moolah. He claimed it was a proud moment for his company and it cemented Microgaming’s position as the largest and most thrilling progressive jackpot network in the online casino industry.
Betway Casino is the largest online casino in the UK. It is licensed by the authorities in Malta and is regulated by the Gambling Commission in the UK.
