Heywood raised £ 13.2 million

Today I would like to explain the story of the British soldier Jon Heywood who raised £ 13.2 million. An incredible but absolutely real story.

The game always carries risks and you don’t always win. Playing should be a form of entertainment and never a way to earn extra income or a way of life. Casinos are companies whose main objective is to make money. So before betting you must bear in mind that the casino starts with an advantage and that you as a player start with a disadvantage. However, starting with a disadvantage does not mean losing. That is not true. In casinos you can win money and some people have managed to win a lot, if not a lot of money. A matter of luck?

This 26-year-old boy deposited £ 30 on the Betway Casino website to play Microgaming’s famous Mega Moolah slot game. He connected to that online casino at 11:37 p.m. on Tuesday, October 6, 2015 and just seven minutes later, he had obtained the biggest jackpot in history. Nothing more and nothing less than 13.2 million pounds, about 18 million euros (taking into account the value of the pound at the time). Amazing but absolutely true. His milestone is part of the Guinness book and Jon Heywood appears as the player who has won the greatest prize ever in an online slot game.

For three days Jon Heywood had to keep it a secret that he was the winner of that fantastic and unrepeatable award. It emerged that it was he who had won the award on the day of the official presentation of the award. In his first statements, he said that at first he could not believe that he had earned all that money and that he would use the prize to pay for the best possible medical treatment for his sick father. Little else is known of Jon Heywood who made £ 13.2 million by betting 25 pence.
