The jackpot slot to end all jackpot slots has done it again. Another record set, this time at Leo Vegas mobile casino.
It’s official, the biggest mobile jackpot slot winner crown has been handed over from one game to another, and from one casino to the next.
In September 2013, the record was set by a Mega Moolah slot winner, who walked away with 3.7 million at Jackpot City casino.
NetEnt’s most famous slot still held the record for the largest online jackpot won, with 17.8 million in January 2013 by a very lucky Fin. But their mobile slots hadn’t yet hit the heights of Microgaming.
Until this Mega Fortune slot winner. With it, NetEntertainment takes the glory of having the largest desktop and largest mobile jackpot ever won, in the history of online slot machines.
But now, time to tell the tale of this lucky man. So we move our story from Finland to Sweden and to one of our favourites; the Leo Vegas mobile casino.
A smart man. A bemused man. A man whose bank manager will suddenly treat him very differently once the 53.6 million SEK lands in his bank account.
We don’t have the name of this Swedish gentlemen, because if you’d won that much cash, you too would be pretty keen to keep your identity secret.
We know that he is 50 years old, so we shall call him Tommy, because everything we’ve learnt about pre-1965 Sweden is through Pippi Longstocking.
It’s as good a guess as any.
Because whilst his budget was pretty conservative, he knew which jackpot slot gave him the best chance to win big.
Better yet, he knew which of the iPad jackpot slots at Leo Vegas would be friendly to his budget.
Whilst Mega Moolah will reward you more if you bet higher, Tommy knew that Mega Fortune could be won by anyone, at any point, with any bet.
And more importantly, it had reached over 50 million SEK (€5 million, £4 million, $6 million) in jackpot money, which meant that it was ready to hit. It had to hit soon. Maybe. Perhaps.
Time to give it a shot. So he started feeding the machine 12.5 SEK at a time (€1.3, £1, $1.5), for the fun of it.
He genuinely wasn’t even thinking what he would do if he won the jackpot. After all, he’d played on Mega Fortune so many times, it was for fun more than jackpot chasing.
Which is actually not very hard to hit, as we write in our Mega Fortune slot review.
In fact it wasn’t even the first time this bonus feature had shown up in game play, and he knew he’d be lucky to get to the second wheel. But the second wheel he hit.
And so he pressed the stop button again and moved to the third wheel. At this stage he was just happy to walk away with one of the big win coin prizes.
Not in a million years did he think he would hit the single arrow symbol, out of the twelve on the wheel, that would win him the Mega jackpot prize.
Which is exactly what he did.

When Leo Vegas called to congratulate Tommy on his incredible win, they were barely able to get a word out of him.
In shock, confused, and still in disbelief, he had very little to say about winning such a life-changing amount.
Which explains his answer when asked what he would spend the money on.
In panic, his response was simple. His car had recently broken down. He suspects he will buy a new car.
Which, we feel, isn’t being particularly ambitious for a newborn millionaire. But we suspect that his brain still needs to connect with the amount won.
And not just for the obvious reasons.
We should mention that the iPad Tommy was playing on, he hadn’t even paid for himself.
He’d been playing at Leo Vegas for a few years now and loves it there, so much so, he rarely goes to any other casino. How did he get so loyal?
Well, other than being a brilliant casino (of course), he’d also won the iPad playing at Leo Vegas, in a random competition when he first started playing there, all that time ago.
Lucky casino, lucky iPad and lucky gambler.
We doubt he will play anywhere else.
Could there be better timing?
Technically, Tommy won the jackpot on the eve of Leo Vega’s 3rd birthday (ie. Sunday 11th). But we only got the news today, Monday 12th of January, so today is the date we are going to celebrate.
Reason being, it suits our story-telling a little more, as we know one man in particular who will be celebrating Leo Vegas birthday with 5.6 million worth of enthusiasm.
And no doubt, the people at Leo Vegas mobile casino will be in a joyful mood indeed as they can now not only claim to be Europe’s friendliest and best mobile casino – but also the luckiest one around.
