Progressive Mobile Slot Game Mega Moolah Pays 8-Figure Sum

Mega Moolah LogoThe team at NetEnt will be glancing jealously over at Microgaming’s progressive slot heavyweight Mega Moolah after it paid out a record-breaking £13,213,838.68 to British soldier and Afghanistan veteran, Jon Heywood, on the 6th October. Jon kept the record-winning spin a secret for three days as he struggled to process the win!

A soldier – Jon Heywood – from Cheshire has won £13.2m after placing a 25p online bet on the progressive slot machine Mega Moolah.

The 26-year-old Afghanistan veteran said the first thing he will do is to get the best possible medical treatment for his farther, who is in need of heart and lung transplants.

He said: “That’s more important than anything. Family comes first and I’d give all this money back for him to be healthy again.”

But Jon does have at least one personal toy lined up – a Bentley sports car.

“I’m trying not to get carried away and I really don’t know what else I’m going to buy with the money, apart from a yellow Bentley Continental GT,” said Mr Heywood.
