A history of jackpot winners

Thursday, May 11, 2017 15:46

LeoVegas is one of the best online casinos in the world today. They are often referred to as the “King of Mobile Casino” and they certainly live up to this reputation as they recently won the “Online Casino Operator of the Year” award for 2017 at the IGA awards in London. The company was founded in 2011 by a couple of Swedish entrepreneurs who wanted to provide players with the ultimate online casino experience. Despite only being in operation for a few years, LeoVegas has crowned many jackpot winners. It is often said that online casinos don’t like winners, the opposite can be said about LeoVegas as they prefer to embrace the big wins and celebrate them.

The Blog


LeoVegas has created a special section on their popular blog where they ask players to submit their big win stories to the site so LeoVegas can share them with the whole world. This a thoughtful idea from the team at LeoVegas but the at the same time, there is no such thing as bad PR so any story involving a prize win is definitely worthy of publication. In fairness though, LeoVegas publish articles about small wins too. There have been many articles published by the blog over the years and we decided to have a look at some of the best winner stories that LeoVegas has published.

Mobile Millionaire


In early 2015, one extremely lucky LeoVegas customer made history by becoming the biggest jackpot winner by using their mobile device! This win was acknowledged in the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest amount any person has won while playing a mobile slot game. The lucky player from Stockholm, Sweden was playing Mega Fortune and managed to trigger the tripled Jackpot bonus game and win a cool €5.6 million with a measly bet of just €1.25! That is not all as this lucky customer was playing with an iPad given to him by LeoVegas! This win is still some way off the €17.8 million won by a Finnish player some years ago but nonetheless, it still made the record books!

An Austrian Treble


To land one big jackpot win is lucky, two is extremely fortunate, but three consecutive big wins usually occur once in a blue moon! This is exactly what happened to a LeoVegas player from Austria. The woman aged 52 first won €500 on the popular slot Mega Fortune Dreams which is not too shabby for a first win but it was the beginning of things to come. She followed that up with a whopping €40,000 win in the classic game Jackpot 50,000 Jester. Then to cap things off nicely, she bagged €32,800 off the slot Million Cents. One or two wins is genuinely really lucky but three is clearly unprecedented!

Laughing all the way to the bank


A few years ago, a LeoVegas player from Sweden was wondering how to spend his afternoon on a damp and wet Sunday. He decided to have a go at Mega Joker and just after a few spins, he landed a huge fortune of €55,000! What is so special about this win you may ask? His own words sum it brilliantly:


“It feels absolutely wonderful. I was just about to make my last spin, and as I did my last play I saw something I’ve never seen on that game before. All lights started to blink and I soon realized that I won the jackpot. When I saw my balance increase, that’s when I realized I just won almost 500 000 SEK!”

How lucky can one person be when it was going to be their last spin and then bang! They win a fortune instantly!
