While online gambling undoubtedly involves the risk of losing all the money you’re willing to bet, there are cases when the payout is 100.000 times more than the wager placed. Just imagine you are sitting in your armchair, wearing your pajamas, clicking a few buttons and all of a sudden being a million dollars richer than a few hours ago. I wish someone made a video of the reactions of those who had this happen to them when they decided to join and play in online casinos.
A 2008 online article describes the biggest online progressive jackpot won to had been around 6 million dollars, but since that time, with online casinos gaining more and more traction, gamblers (especially high-rollers) have earned even huger amounts of money.
When you google ’biggest online casino winners’, one of the names that pops up is a lucky Norwegian lad who is simply known by the name ’Peter’, who apparently won 11.7 million euros by playing a slot machine online at Casino.Betsson.com. He even had to contact the tech support of the online gambling site to confirm how much that is in Norwegian krones, so it only hit him then when the tech guy answered that he had just become a millionaire, and he didn’t even have to leave his house for that to happen (since even collecting your winnings is possible through online payment methods).
Other great wins in the world of online casinos include a dutch genlteman who won 2.5 million dollars playing in 21Nova’s online casino. In the UK, another big online casino win was by a lucky businesswoman named Carol Andrew who won 137.000 US dollars. In my country last year a Hungarian gambler won a jackpot worth 904.495 euros in the online Unibet Casino.
High-rollers are richer gamblers who place enormous bets in games so if they win the amount won is also a huge load of money. Greece’s biggest online gambling wins include a high-roller Greek guy who won 1.5 million dollars on Sportingbet.com, and another Greek fella who won 6,3 million euros in 2009.
But to be fair, not everyone has to place scary amounts of money to win more than a million dollars, if you are lucky enough, you can just play with a paltry amount of 5 dollars, like how a certain British guy did, and ended up winning 1.3 million dollars.
When I get together with my family we usually just sit down to have dinner, and discuss how the week went for everyone. Well a family from Oregon decided to do something different when they went on Casino On Net to play 9 dollars, and the peculiar family activity granted them almost a million dollars, $902.505 to be exact.
According to jackpotgraphs.com the current highest jackpot amongst the online casinos they are listing is 3.358.254 euros in Unibet Casino’s game called Arabian Nights. That as a hell of an amount to win by basically playing an online flash/downloadable game. It even sounds sort of ridiculous, if you think about how much you have to work to earn that sort of money, and as opposed to working your ass off, with online slot casinos all you have to do is spin the virtual machine, which takes just a few seconds and (a shitload of) luck.
A Finnish guy reportedly won 17.8 million euros online by hitting the jackpot on the Mega Fortune slot machine, which is one of the highest online jackpots ever hit. The article also says that in another case 3.9 million euros were won using nine spins, just within a single minute. If you think you have this sort of luck and you want to go try yourself for the jackpot right away, there is actually an opportunity to play these online slot machines without spending any money, just for free fun. There are both downloadable and flash-based versions of the slot machines they use in online casinos for free on casino review sites like AllAboutSlots.com, where you can also check in which casinos you can play the specific game, and you can read reviews of the games and the casinos by other gamblers (which you need to take with a grain of salt, since they could be doing reviews in favor of the casinos). This is a great way to familiarize yourself with the flow of the slot games before you actually start giving out credit card details, not to mention it’s almost as fun as the real thing, except that you don’t really have a chance to win any real money.
You too can join the ranks of the biggest winners by taking advantage of the best casino bonuses and offers of trusted casinos.
