Biggest Jackpots Won On Slots

As the online casino industry gets bigger and bigger, so too do the pay outs, meaning that some people these days are getting seriously lucky on the slots. It is true; with so many people spinning the reels in 2019 it means that developers and casinos can afford to pay out much more money. And the frequency of players also means that things like progressive jackpot machines are more likely to pay out quicker simply due to the sheer velocity of gamblers playing them.

So, more and more people are hitting the proverbial holy grail of online slots, aka the jackpot, but what are the biggest jackpots won on slots in 2019, including from Dream Jackpot? Well, first and foremost, it is actually very difficult to work this one out with 100% accuracy, simply because there are so many people winning these days. But we have done a thorough bit of research and these are the findings…

Mega Moolah Jackpot

It is funny actually, you may have expected there to be a few different titles on the list for biggest jackpots won on slots in 2019, but the reality is that Microgaming’s Mega Moolah is responsible for the vast majority of them. That is most probably because of the developer’s outrageous Progressive Jackpot Network that covers thousands of spins a second. It therefore means that a big hitter is never too far away.

On the 30th of January 2019 one lucky Canadian playing on Zodiac Casino won an absolutely ludicrous sum of $20,057,734, a total that could quite easily be 2019’s biggest online slot win, even though it happened right at the start of the year. It is just that big! What a lucky guy.

You will quickly realise why so many people love playing Mega Moolah after learning that there has been two more huge jackpot wins in 2019, and we’re only just about half way through. £8,165,457 was obtained on the 3rd of May also, whilst the 5th of March saw one lucky player win $12,945,603. Bonkers! By now the lesson must be clear – give Mega Moolah a shot if you want to end up with one of the biggest jackpots of the year.

Mega Bucks Slot Game

Another slot, this time land-based, that has gained an almost mythical reputation for incredibly large pay outs is the Mega Bucks machines that are found all across Las Vegas and Nevada. These are responsible for some of the biggest wins in the whole of history, so there is no chance they would not be included in the biggest jackpot wins on slots in 2019.

On Sunday April the 14th a hotel guest at Sunset Station in Henderson sat on a Mega Bucks machine after depositing $40, luckily for him it only took a few $3 spins until the machine unleashed its huge jackpot. The gambler then walked away with a jackpot of $13,154,723, can you believe that? All off of a 3-dollar spin.

Nadine West - 4th Shipment

It's time again for my beloved Nadine West shipment. I love getting to try new looks that I would not have the ambition to try otherwise.

Can't go wrong with neutral staples, like these black stretch denim Bermuda shorts. They go with everything and are super comfortable.

This is a little outside my comfort zone. It's a romper. It is super cute, but I normally do not wear shorts at all, because I hate my fat legs. And this is pretty short (to me). But I am working on my weight, and I am going to give this a try. Now I have an excuse to branch out a bit.

This red top is so cute. It is dressy enough to wear with slacks or a skirt, but comfortable and casual enough for jeans or leggings too.

This black top is excellent. It's dressy, it's a little trendy, it will go with everything. I love it.

I wasn't sure about these pants at first. I normally don't do too much pattern on the bottom, especially stripes, but the cut and comfort are amazing, and these actually look quite nice on. I really like them.

This is my favorite outfit combo out of this shipment. 

The fit is great. And this looks pretty nice (much less casual than my usual clothes) while still be very comfortable. I love the wide legs on the pants, and the fabric is like butter. Better than yoga pants. I am thrilled.
