The Mega Jackpot is one of four progressive jackpots that you can play for right now on a Microgaming slot machine called The Dark Knight. This is the largest of the four jackpots and it recently climbed to more than £5,000,000.00. The much smaller jackpots include the Major Jackpot, the Minor Jackpot and the Mini Jackpot and these are currently worth approximately £38,405.00, £100.00 and £30.00, respectively.

These jackpots are actually connected to several Microgaming slot machines including Mega Moolah, Mega Moolah Summertime, Mega Moolah Isis and Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive. All of these games can be found right now at Betway Casino, 32Red Casino and Roxy Palace Casino. All of these UK online casinos are licensed in the UK by the Gambling Commission, they are all eCOGRA certified and they are all free to sign up to.

These jackpots can only ever be won from within the randomly triggered progressive jackpot bonus round. On The Dark Knight slot, simply choose your side to spin the jackpot wheel. The Mini Jackpot will never drop below £10.00, the Minor Jackpot will never drop below £100.00, the Major Jackpot will never drop below £10,000.00 and the Mega Jackpot will never drop below its original seed amount of £1,000,000.00.

The last person to hit the Mega Jackpot was UK player Jonathon Heywood who netted a world record breaking £13,213,838.68 from a mere £0.25 spin. This lucky UK player was playing at Betway Casino towards the beginning of October 2015 when his luck came in. “It’s all so surreal, and I can’t come to terms with it just yet, I just kept staring at my screen and seeing this huge number in my Betway account,” said the lucky winner at the time when speaking to Microgaming.

This huge win officially entered the Guinness World Records in December and was awarded the Guinness World Records title for the ‘Largest Jackpot Payout in an Online Slot Machine Game’. “I’m pleased to confirm that the Guinness World Records title for the largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine game is €17,879,645.12, which was won by Jonathan Heywood, while playing Microgaming’s Mega Moolah on Betway's website. And Jon is certainly in the moolah now, thanks to his exceptional stroke of luck,” said a spokesperson for Guinness World Records.
