1. British Solider Wins Biggest Online Slots Jackpot Ever
In October 2015, Mega Moolah fever was rampant since the jackpot reached a record high. And with millions of players trying to win the massive prize, it was British soldier Jon Heywood who came away the lucky winner. He hit a €17,879,645 (£13.2m) payout, which broke the previous online slots jackpot world record of €17,861,813. Heywood wasn't worried about the record, though, since he couldn't wait to pay for his father's heart and lung transplant. Of course, he also spent some money on himself, taking his family on a Mediterranean cruise and buying a Bentley Continental GT car.
2. Mobile Player Hits €7.9m Jackpot
It wasn't until 2013 that anybody had won over $1 million through a mobile slots game.
