A young soldier, who served in Afghanistan, has been named as the winner of the record breaking £13.2 Mega Moolah win last Tuesday.
Jon Heywood, 26, from Crewe, Cheshire won the enormous prize playing Mega Moolah jackpot slot at Betway Casino playing only 25p a spin. What was even more staggering is that after the win Jon kept quiet about it for 3 days, even going into work the next day as if nothing had happened.
Speaking to the press about his win Jon said: “I couldn’t believe that I’d won all this money at the time – and it still hasn’t sunk in.”
“It’s amazing. The first thing I will spend it on is the best possible medical treatment for my dad.”
“That’s more important than anything. Family comes first and I’d give all this money back for him to be healthy again.”
Jon also plans to by himself a luxury car win his new found fortune, with a Bentley Continental GT at the top of his shopping list.
This win is incredible for many reasons; the size of the stake being played, but also the total jackpot prize £13,213,838.68. Converted to Euros using the exchange rate at the time of winning of 1.3531, the win comes out at €17,879,645.12, beating the previous record of €17,861,813 held by NetEnt’s Mega Fortune.
Alan Alger, a Betway spokesman, said: “We couldn’t be happier for Jon – he’s an incredibly nice guy and his family will benefit immensely from his huge win.”
