2020 has been another remarkable year in the slots industry. Punters have been bombarded with new slot game releases containing more extravagant and complex gameplay than ever before. With more lucrative bonuses and outrageous multipliers added into the equation, it comes as no surprise to discover that there have been some colossal slot wins this year, either through some high staking or jackpot-winning spins and UK players can pay with their mobile device.
2020 saw online streamers win record amounts as they took on slots with the most prestigious bonus rounds. Lil’ Devil powered by Big Time Gaming was behind many of the biggest wins to be caught live on film with some streamers winning 50,000x their stake. All the wins came during the bonus round and more particularly during the Be My Angel free spins, where wilds stick and remain on the reels throughout the entire duration of the free spins. Other slots, including old favourites like Book of Dead, also contributed to some gigantic pay outs.
Away from streamers, jackpots continued to be won nationally and internationally. In April, a female slot player from Scotland won the progressive jackpot at her favourite casino site whilst playing Ice Queen. She won the progressive casino site Jackpot to the tune of £151,923. This was beaten in August in the USA when an individual won $228,105, again after hitting a casino jackpot. Later in August, another non-UK punter and VIP customer won $240,798 when she also hit a jackpot whilst playing her favourite slot game.
Into the winter months and the back end of 2020 saw another American-based punter walk off with $443,480 after winning the Divine Fortune slot progressive jackpot. Lynn was made redundant from her job as a restaurant worker in April 2020, so the win was a godsend to her. Lynn was spinning the progressive jackpot slot on her mobile phone for $3 a spin when you landed the slot’s biggest prize. The win occurred whilst Lynn and her husband were relaxing in front of the TV. Lynn vowed to use the winnings to pay off all her debts and then have a Christmas to remember.
The newly formed slot millionaires didn’t start to roll in until the spring of 2020 when one lucky punter won €4.2 million by hitting the jackpot on Yggdrasil’s Empire Fortune progressive jackpot slot game. This slot has paid out large jackpots before to players around the world and this was one of the largest of them all.
Mega Moolah slot by Microgaming is behind the biggest online jackpot win ever recorded, £13.2 million was won back in 2015 and in April 2020 the slot was at it again. This time one lucky punter won a life-changing €10,735,716 whilst playing the game at their favourite online casino. The lucky casino customer was paid in a lump sum and also congratulated by Microgaming.
The Best Saved for Last
Mega Moolah wasn’t done with changing the lives of punters in 2020 and the biggest win of them all was saved for August, when a punter from Sweden walked off with €14.2 million thanks to this African Savannah themed slot.
