An interesting place to read win stories is on tripadvisor where someone has asked the question: “Biggest win on slot machine and where in Vegas”..full of comments of people telling their own stories of their biggest ever hits on slot machines.


World Record Online Slot Machine Win

One of the most popular and biggest online Jackpot slots is Mega Fortune, a game by Netent. Here you can see the world record online slot win of 17 million Euros from 2013. With Netent being such a major player in the industry, this slot can be found on nearly all the online casino sites. Personally I have spun in the bonus wheel twice and never got passed the first level.

Playing Online Jackpot Slots (non USA)

You can find Mega fortune and all the other Jackpot slots (each casino has slightly different choices) at the following casinos. I have accounts at all 3 of these and have thoroughly tried and tested them all. Some I have won at and cashed out and others not, overall I’m about even. These sites are all good and well worth a look. I just logged in to my account at Thrills Casino and I can see that the Jackpot currently stands at £2.1m for Mega Fortune, (correct at time of writing – constantly changing).

The Jackpots for these games will be consistent across any casino that you play at, they will not be different playing the same game at different sites. I checked this by also logging in to my account at Casumo where I can see the exact same Jackpot prizes.

Wagering requirments for deposit related bonuses

I’ve included wagering info for all of the following casinos, it’s important to note however that all wagering is tied to either freespins or deposit related bonuses. If you opt out of the bonus and play with straight deposits then you never have to worry about wagering.

While 20x, 35x, 45x wagering may sound scary and unreachable on the face of it, it’s actually very doable and I’ve achieved it myself many times over. Slots are always paying out 95-99% so your accumulated winnings will meet the requirement fairly fast over a session. Most players usually choose to take the bonus related bonus because it just gives you that extra bankroll to enjoy your session. If you don’t want it, don’t take it, and if you have any issue or concern, almost all casinos now offer 24hr live chat support so you can easily sort it out.

slot machines with the best jackpots and highest payouts

Probably my favorite site of these three, although they are all really great sites – is Cashmio. I can see at Cashmio as well as all the above games, they also offer the Mega Moolah Isis game with a Jackpot of £3.2m. also Golden Monkey Frog at £52k.

Receive 100% up to £100 on your first deposit + 100 free spins

Really all of these site are offering largely the exact same games but there are little differences between them, for example the wagering requirements and deposit bonuses are slightly different between each casino. You will also find that each one offers a slightly different set of slots choice such as the Mega Moolah Isis extra option at Cashmio.

This site I highly recommend after cashing out a decent profit following a slots session.

Click on the ticker when the relevant game is shown to open the game.

Progressive Jackpot Slots at Fair Go Casino


Fair Go casino is accepting players from the USA!

One game I enjoyed playing at Fair Go is Pirate Isle 3D. It has pretty cool 3D effects and some funny symbols that keep the game entertaining. There is an “extra bet” button on there and it wasn’t clear what it was for. The extra bet is necessary to enable the feature game, so you need to have the extra money put down or else when you spin in the 3 chests you wont hit the feature. This is a progressive feature that amplifies each time it is hit, offering a maximum 1000x.

The extrabet is proportionate to your stake, a $1.50 spinn costs 30cents on extrabet so $1.80 a spin total. At $6.25 a spin the extra bet is $1.25.

In hitting the win below I activated the “key unlock” for a line of keys and you can see the blue key added to the inventory in the top right. Once you collect a line of all 5 colors of keys you hit a 300 freespins feature. Sweet! You must hit them all on the same stake though if I reduce the stake to $1.50 the key disappears.

Bonus: 100% up to $200 – Redeem it 5 times!

Wagering for deposit related bonus is 30x
