We’ve written about the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot several times not least when it reach a staggering £13 million, the biggest total on record and the prize has finally been won in it’s entirety.

The way in which the winner claimed the life changing sum of money will surely become a tale of legend. The progressive jackpot which is shared across a number of operators offering the Mega Moolah and Dark Knight titles, was taken down by a Betway casino player.

A UK player called Jon Heywood, a soldier who had formerly served in Afghanistan won the momumental £13,213,838.68 progressive jackpot. The most staggering thing about this win wasn’t the prize pool though, it was the fact that 26-year-old Jon took the prize home by wagering just 25p per spin.

Jon now plans to use the money to help his father who is awaiting a lung and hear transplant as well as treating himself to a new set of wheels in the form of a Bentley Continental GT (Good choice!).

The winning player 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. I couldn’t believe that I’d won all this money at the time – and it still hasn’t sunk in. It’s amazing.”

Alan Alger, a Betway spokesman, commented: “We couldn’t be happier for Jon – he’s an incredibly nice guy and his family will benefit immensely from his huge win.” [/supetagline]

The progressive jackpot has now been reset at 1,000,000 and we’ll continue to watch it grow over the the coming weeks in anticipation of another life changing win.
