If we are talking about individual jackpot wins, then pooled progressive slot jackpots is one option for those who want to have a chance of winning really big. In 2011, the Mega Fortune slot was entered into the list of Guinness World Records when it paid out a pooled progressive jackpot consisting of €11,735,446 to a Norwegian gambler in Betsson Casino. This was the largest progressive jackpot ever paid out by an online casino. Since then, the Mega Fortune slot has broken its own record by paying a €17,860,868 progressive jackpot to a Finnish player in Paf Casino on January 2013.
On October 6, 2015, the Mega Fortune slot was surpassed by the Mega Moolah slot. The Mega Moolah Slot paid out a £13, 212, 882 progressive jackpot to a British player in Betway Casino. At the time of this win, £13, 212, 882 was the equivalent of €17, 879, 654 which means that the Mega Fortune jackpot was beaten with a margin smaller than €19,000.
Examples of slots famous for their large progressive jackpots are Mega Moolah, Mega Moolah Isis, The Dark Knight, Mega Fortune, Mega Fortune Dreams, Hall of Gods, Arabian Nights, Gold Rally, Beach Life, Snow Business, Melon Madness, and Millionair’s Club (I, II and III).
