D. P. was signed up to the casino’s program “80 Chances to Become a Millionaire”, which means that the fortunate player could bet only a small amount like 1 £/$/€ and still managed to win the big money.

However, Alexander from Sweden is for sure one of the happiest ones. On November 28 in 2015 at Folkeautomaten, young Scandinavian scored one of the highest wins. The lucky player was only 30 years old when he hit the jackpot of $9.57 million (€8.57 million). In the first moments after winning, he couldn’t even speak. When he recovered from shock, he ran to the bedroom where his wife was sleeping, he woke her up and they celebrated together. And what did he decide to do with the money? Alexander was happy that he could finally pay his mortgage and give himself some nice present such as exotic holidays or a new car.
3. Insomniac hits Guinness World Record Win
A sleepless night can be a big problem, especially if you have to go to work the next morning. However, bad sleeping habits proved to be profitable for a young man from Norway. His decision to skip a good sleep and play a few games at online casino company Betsson.com didn’t cost him his career. In fact, now he just doesn’t have to care about it anymore. When young Norwegian couldn’t get a decent sleep at the night of 24th of September 2011, instead of counting sheep, he decided to get out of his bed and try his luck. Later that night, when he won $13.47 million (€11,736,375), he realised that it was the best decision he had ever made. After winning the largest ever jackpot payout, he couldn’t sleep at all. He was awake till 6:00 am in the morning recovering from a big shock and wondering what he would do with all the money.
2. UK soldier hits $17.2 Million jackpot
Mega Moolah Progressive Jackpot is probably one of the most generous games that one can play. Jonathon Heywood from Cheshire in the United Kingdom proved this right once again, when he broke the record by hitting an impressive jackpot of $17.2 million (£13.2 million) on 6th of October, 2015. The British soldier was only 26 years old when he placed a bet of 25p per spin at Betway casino and walked away as millionaire. When he won, it seemed so unreal to him, that he just couldn’t believe it had really happened. He didn’t spend his fortune on expensive cars or houses as many other winners did. His father was sick and he used most of his money to pay for his treatment. Betway casino representative as well as Microgaming’s CEO Roger Raatgever both congratulated the lucky winner.
