Large jackpots in live casinos are real! 
Earn mega bucks if you are mega lucky person!

It was on March 21st, 2003, that a modest twenty-five year old programmer from the City of Angels made the 400 mile road trip to Las Vegas to see a basketball game and drink a pint or two of cold beers. When teams went to a break between halves, the programmer went to play on the slot machines; previously he had only played in an online live casino but on seeing them he could not resist the temptation to pull a real lever on the “one-armed bandits”.

He was in the Excalibur Casino and amongst a huge selection of slots he chose to play the Megabucks slot machine, probably because of the headline jackpot total. After putting only $100 on the «Megabucks» gaming machine he managed to rip up the odds tables and overcome odds of one in 16.7 million to take down the jackpot of $39,700,000 – now that is a real jackpot!

This jackpot was the biggest win in the history of the casino and in fact the history of Las Vegas. In addition, the American democratic law states that casinos must pay the prize over a period of twenty-five years - so the programmer, who requested to remain anonymous, now annually receives from the casino $1,500,000. That is $4,110 a day, not bad eh?

These days however there are simply millions of people playing slots online due to the ease of access that everybody enjoys and this has led to the creation of many Virtual Millionaires. Online casinos with live casino dealers give players the feel of playing as if they really were in Las Vegas with the chance to play the big slots, and that allows them the same chances as our lucky programmer from Los Angeles who scooped the big one.

Currently there is battle going on between Mega Fortune and Mega Moolah for the largest online jackpot offered and paid out. Fortune paid an anonymous player from Finland €17,861,813 in January 2013 only to out done by a fraction Moolah in October 2015. They paid a 26-year-old soldier from Britain (Great! as no tax to pay) €17,879,645 taking the record by just €17,832.

Awesome, isn’t it? Remarkably these lucky gamblers won the largest sums in the history of casino winnings after spending only a few tens of dollars. Who knows maybe next incredible lucky millionaire is reading this post now?
