Life altering sums of cash only coincide in three possible outcomes in our everyday life – a huge promotion (or stock win), becoming a millionaire in the movies or… winning a jackpot. Yes, we can name more but those are all off point – which is, online casinos are the place where (most) people get to win some truly life altering cash.
Winning online is quite different from winning at the regular brick and mortar casino – there’s usually not much buzz and screaming and the fanfare movies made you believe. It is of course, a great deal once you realize that it is actually happening to you and it is real.
Well, the people on this list of winners did experience all that in more – they are part of the hall of fame list for biggest slots jackpot winners of all time. So, before we get on to the list, if you get the sudden urge to try your luck, take a look at this free spins guide we provided for you to help you with your mission – to join the list! Let’s get it on, shall we?

Coming in very close at number 2 is a Mega Fortune player who managed to snag a jackpot that is just several thousand dollars shy of the biggest world win yet. It was claimed by a player hailing from Finand who had the amazing jackpot hit him like a truck when playing back in 2013. “It was a cold night in January so I didn’t have anything better to do than try some slots.
