Solider Nets a 13 million+ Jackpot Online

This is the biggest win ever recorded and news of the win coming from across the big pond seems to have only just reached the US online casino news desks. Now let’s put this win into perspective from an American citizens point of view - £13.2 million is $21 million – yes that 21 million USD suffice to say!

Jon Heywood from the north of UK (Not that it’s a big place anyway) bet just 0.25p (about $0.40) on that day and netted his mega win. He did still have to finish his army duties as the contracts are strict; without a question of doubt he knew that the job he loved despite the low pay was just about to become more of a hobby than a career.
 

He has toured Afghanistan with our own US army boys. His win came as a complete surprise and he even managed to keep it under wraps for 3 days before he finally let out he had one. The day after his recorded win he was actually at work doing his duty for Queen and country!

Speaking to the British version of the BBC news and media outlet he said ‘I could not believe that I had netted such an obscene amount of cash in one go – I’m not even sure if the win has sunk in yet’.

As a loving son he took the first piece of cash from his nest egg to help get treatment for his father who had been on a National Health Service (they get free medical care) waiting list. The heart transplant was successful as when you have money in the UK, you can ditch the long free medical care waiting lists and go private where the posh private medical hospitals there cost literally an arm and a leg; luckily Jon’s dad came out with all those particulars still intact as a few million pounds meant the arm and leg were not necessary!

For now, tis win stands as a world record. There is no win recorded online bigger than this, and even the live casinos in Vegas will need to dig deep to find and prove a winner that has traipsed the streets of Sin City and come out on top with such a large amount of cash.

Today online slots are making the headlines consistently. The new large progressive jackpot networks coming from the likes of Microgaming, NetEnt and Amaya gaming are collecting in cash faster than US Inland Revenue services. In the UK, for Jon, the win is tax free – yes – they do not get taxed on their winnings, but he can expect a heavy tax bill on the interest accrued, but who is complaining – this is probably the best ROI we have seen, the biggest win reported and also a tax problem Jon is no doubt more than happy have.
