Player lands world record €19.4m online slot win on Napoleon

A Belgian player on Napoleon Sports & Casino has become the biggest ever single spin online slot winner after landing a jackpot of more than €19.4 million on Microgaming title Absolootly Mad™ Mega Moolah.

The player, who wishes to remain anonymous, took the jackpot from just a €15 stake. “The feeling at that moment is just indescribable,” he said. “At first you can hardly believe it and I think it will take a long time to sink in completely. It was on my last spin that it happened.

“I read how last week a Napoleon player won a multi-million jackpot and of course I started dreaming about it as well. But to actually live this moment… I feel so lucky.”

Here, the player is referring to a separate instance just last week, where a player won a jackpot of more than €2 million on WowPot – another Microgaming title.

“This is mind blowing,” said Tim De Borle, CEO of Napoleon Sports & Casino Online. “Last week we were already over the moon when a player won our 2 million Wowpot.

“But to have a second winner on our platform, for a world record breaking amount, is just sensational and highly exceptional. This is a unique moment in betting history worldwide.“

He added: “This is also the greatest thrill in the history of Napoleon. Everybody is filled with joy with this fantastic milestone.”

John Coleman, CEO at Microgaming, commented: “We’re absolootly delighted to see Mega Moolah make history once again with its latest record-breaking win, and what an incredible win it is – €19.4 million!

“That’s the largest jackpot payout in an online slot of all time. Congrats to the player, and well done to Napoleon Sports & Casino on their second Mega jackpot win on our network in as many weeks.”

According to the Guinness World Records, the previous ‘largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game’ also came via Microgaming’s Mega Moolah, this time on Betway. The amount was reported as $20,062,600 (€17,879,645).

Protecting players both in the event of big wins or losses is a big priority at Napoleon, added De Borle, who stressed that the player will receive guidance from the operator about dealing with this huge win.
