In April 2021, things got hot on the net. Two insane record jackpots were won at online casinos. On April 14, an English player won £15,182,284.27, and on April 27, a Belgian player won €19,430,723.60.
What do these two pots have in common? Slot machines from the Microgaming group! What’s Microgaming? It’s the creator of the most lucrative casino games on the Internet.
April 14: 15 Million WowPot Jackpot
England’s luckiest player has smashed the previous UK jackpot winning record (which was £13,213,838.68).
An £0.80 bet on the Book of Atem WowPot slot machine activated the game’s bonus wheel. The future winner then clicked on the SPIN button and won £15,182,284. This slot machine fan achieved this feat at the online casino 32Red.com, a well-known gambling platform in England.
April 27: 19 million Mega Moolah jackpot
The news of the jackpot won on Absolootly Mad Mega Moolah has spread around the world! The pot won by the Belgian player is now the world record! The previous record is from September 28, 2018 (€18,915,872.81) and took place at Grand Mondial.
The Belgian player, a member of the Napoleon Games website, hit a record jackpot on a €15 bet. He bet big and it paid off! In Belgium, the news went viral in the local press. Let’s face it, winning a world record jackpot is something that doesn’t go unnoticed. In Belgium, all the gambling bloggers are talking about it.
However, there is one bad thing about Napoleon Games! Only Belgians can play. The Belgian Gaming Commission does not allow foreigners to register.
Who are the jackpot winners?
Neither were willing to give their names.
But that's normal, don’t you think?
Who would want to reveal their name in this kind of situation?
Very few gamblers who have won big want to tell everyone about it. To date, the only big winner who has revealed himself is the former 2015 record-holder. This crazy gambler, Jon Heywood, even had his win entered into the Guinness World Records.

The April 14 jackpot came from one of the "WowPot" games. As for the world record, it was achieved on the game Absolootly Mad.
