Big Jackpot Wins

While there’s a lot to be said for aiming to enjoy your casino gaming to the maximum by playing cautiously to win small amounts, it’s never far from mind that just around the corner that big life-changing win could be waiting.

The most likely way this is going to happen is by playing one of the slots which offers big progressive prizes, although there are prospects for big wins in some card games and of course if you hit a consistent lucky streak in blackjack or roulette (and keep playing up your winnings).

It’s always great to read about some lucky casino player landing a big jackpot pile of cash somewhere – rare though it is – and hearing about those wins can add some motivation to our own attempts to do the same.

Of course if you do want to go for one of the big jackpots you’ll need to know where to find them. The latest casino jackpots page here on Gamblersfever is designed to deliver just that.

On this page we’ll be bringing news of some of the most recent big casino jackpot wins from around the world.  Before we go into some detail on latest winners, you might want to read about some of the biggest jackpot wins ever recorded.

November 2016 Winners

€11 million won on Mega Fortune Dreams

NetEnt is a name any slots player will want to remember. They’re well known for their range of high quality machines.

But it’s not just top class entertainment that Netent slots bring to the table. With two huge jackpot wins being hit in this November 2016 alone, there are clearly some chances of winning big cash too.

First up there was an €11 million jackpot win on their famous Hall of Gods slot, followed two weeks later by a Swedish player striking it lucky on Mega Fortune Dreams while logged in to his Maria Casino account.

The Mega Fortune Dreams jackpot starts at €250,000, and can climb right up to €17.8 million which is the record win to date. Game graphics are based on a luxury theme where you’ll be sailing a yacht and spinning 5 reels containing symbols such as champagne bottles, cocktails, and expensive watches.

All the winners landed the jackpot by getting three Bonus Wheels to land in the three middle reels. That triggers a visit to the Mega Fortune wheel and its four progressive levels. Reach this and you’ll be getting a series of small wins as you progress, but reach the fourth level and you have a chance for the big one.

$11 million Won On Mega Moolah In Australia

Mega Moolah is well known for big jackpot payouts, and is keeping up its reputation with a win for an Australian player of over $11 million, or close to AUD 16 million.

The life-changing win came on YakoCasino, a Malta-licensed operator who only went live in 2015.

Mega Moolah is of course the slot that sits at the top of Microgaming’s tree. With 5 reels and a bonus prize wheel round that gets randomly triggered,  it features a total of four separate progressive jackpots with the biggest kicking off at a tasty million dollars.

It’s one of the slots which build up their jackpots across multiple different casinos. Which explains the huge amounts that get reported when a lucky player hits the big payout. Figures such as CAD11.6 million (AUD11.63 million) and £13.2 million (AUD22.22 million) have been seen in the past, with the UK win coming from a stake of just 25p.

Of course, it won’t be lost on many of us that winning a boat-sized cash prize is a lot easier to read about that to actually experience. Most of us will need to be – and are – satisfied with winning smaller amounts on a regular basis.

If you are attempting to win money playing online casino games, the most likely way you’re going to do it is to keep your bets small, choose your games carefully, and bet cleverly with full practice of any strategies that will improve chances.

Playing in slots tournaments is one way that’s cheap to try. There’s no skill involved in that, but there are a number of strategies you can use to put you in the best position possible to do well.
