In the early hours of the 7th of October 2015, Jonathon Heywood, a 26-year-old soldier from Cheshire UK, made history by winning the jackpot with a 25p bet while playing at the popular Betway Casino.

Jonathon said "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."

Betway spokesperson Alan Alger said "We are delighted for Jonathon and having met him the day after his win we can honestly say that it couldn't happen to a nicer young man. We hope he really enjoys the world record win."

Microgaming CEO, Roger Raatgever said "We have the longest-standing progressive jackpot network, having launched the first internet progressive jackpot in 1998, as well as the biggest, having paid out over half a billion euros to date. Our progressive jackpot network has set many records since its inception, but I'm absolutely overjoyed to say that our software has generated the world's largest ever online jackpot win. Many congratulations to Jonathon on this life-changing and historic win!"

Jonathon is not the first UK player to have won the Mega Moolah jackpot. Including John Orchard's win of £5.8 million there have been several others. You can read more about the Mega Moolah winners on
