Three bettors won top prizes worth more than $7 million after playing online progressive jackpot slots, with the biggest solo win worth $3 million.
Three persons went to their respective beds with smiles on their faces after winning huge jackpot prizes, and they are just some of the lucky players who have had the taste of the biggest casino jackpot wins in the world.
Numerous outlets and gambling websites reported three online casino jackpots won by three different players in the month of May alone. These lucky players took home a total amount of around US$7.8 million by playing progressive jackpot slot games.
While standard slots have a fixed maximum amount of rewards, jackpots from progressive slots can increase to as high as it possibly can. Each time a player places a bet on a progressive slot, the jackpot continues to accumulate. The prize continues to go higher until someone wins.
Winning 49x Wilds
On May 29, a fortunate player managed to win the jackpot on one of Liberty Slots casino’s games.
The bettor named Eddie snagged the US$44 thousand top prize on 7X Lucky 7s, a one-line three-reel casino slot. The player was betting three US$5 coins per spin. According to his account, he spun three red Sevens and two Wilds. Normally, that would give him US$900. However, luck was on his side as the two Wilds gave him a 49x multiplier. His spin—worth only US$15—earned him exactly US$44,100.
Eddie, a long-time Liberty Slots player, said:
“After that I was done! I just needed to sleep for a bit. I’ll cash out a chunk of hits—I earned it—and then I’ll play some more with the rest.”
7X Lucky 7s, part of WILD X slots game series, is a progressive casino slot by WGS Technology Casinos. The game has a guaranteed progressive jackpot, guaranteed to pay out once it passes the US$25,000 threshold.

A Mega Spin for a Huge Fortune
Another player won an almost similar jackpot amount in one of LeoVegas Casino’s slot games.
The Swedish bettor obtained the €3,773,845.27 top prize after playing Mega Fortune. While impressive, that top prize is far from the slot’s record of €17.8 million jackpot paid out back in 2013.
Henrik Fagerlund, chief product officer of NetEnt, said:
“The jackpots just keep on coming and we’re happy to see another player scoop a life-changing amount of money while playing our games. At NetEnt, we thrive on providing moments like this for operators and players alike, and hope that our good luck continues as we head into the summer.”
Mega Fortune is a five-reel 25-payline progressive jackpot slot game developed by NetEnt. The developer’s games for this year alone gave away five top prizes worth more than a million euros each.
