The world record win on online slots is broken – WOWPOT! jackpot of €42 million!


There are Christmas presents, and then there are life-changing jackpot wins. Oh, and add a world record into the mix, and you get a winner of the WOWPOT! jackpot of €42 million that was won last night.

The world record win: over 42 million euros!

The details we can share right now is that a lucky player won €42,149,180 on December 20th, 2023, at 3:45 AM playing a WOWPOT! slot.

The origins of the winner, the online casino where it happened, and more details are still to be revealed, and once we have all that info, we will share it here with you.

What are WOWPOT! jackpots?


WOWPOT! is an online casino slot jackpot that was launched in February 2022 by game studio Microgaming, which is also the creator of the Mega Moolah jackpots.

The following games offer players the possibility to win a WOWPOT! jackpot and the list is continuously growing:

  • Wheel of Wishes
  • Book of Atem WOWPOT!
  • Sherlock and Moriarty WOWPOT!
  • Sisters of OZ WOWPOT!
  • Queen of Alexandria WOWPOT!
  • Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon WOWPOT! Megaways
  • Cash’ N Riches Megaways WOWPOT!
  • 9 Blazing Diamonds WOWPOT!
  • Ancient Fortunes Poseidon WOWPOT! Megaways
  • The Finer Reels of Life WOWPOT!

Wowpot jackpots offer players the chance to win one of four available jackpots with the minimum guaranteed starting value:

  • Main: £/€/$ 2 million (minimum)
  • Major: £/€/$ 50,000
  • Minor: £/€/$ 100
  • Mini: £/€/$ 10

The jackpots are progressive, meaning that they keep growing the more people play, as 5.3% of all bets are allocated to the jackpots until won.

Previous WOWPOT! and other jackpot wins

WOWPOT! is still a new phenomenon, but thanks to this recent win, it has broken any previous records and is the new world record holder for online slot wins.

However, there have been some other “decent” wins from Wowpot jackpots in the past:

  • A UK player won £15.1 million (€17.5 million) from Book of Atem in April 2021.
  • €2.02 million in April 2021 won by a Belgian player.

Other previous massive wins from jackpot slots include:

  • €22.2 million won on Mega Moolah in 2021.
  • €18.9 million on Mega Moolah in 2018.
  • €18.4 million on Mega Moolah in 2015.
  • €17.8 million on Mega Fortune in 2013.

As you can see, the most significant jackpot wins don’t happen too often, but maybe that will change now with the introduction of Wowpot jackpots.

What happens now with the WOWPOT! jackpot?


Normally, the main WOWPOT! starts from £/€/$ 2 million once it restarts after a win. 

However, since the record jackpot grew to such big amounts, the main jackpot started re-seeding itself earlier through some of the players’ bets before it was won.

Due to this measure, the main jackpot starts at £/€/$ 8 million instead of the usual 2 million already, making it a huge amount to be won.

Will we see another record-breaking jackpot soon, or will the new main jackpot be won quickly? Only time will tell.

Current WOWPOT Jackpot amount

In May 2024, the WOWPOT jackpot grew to €11 million and counting.

It is a long way off from record-breaking amounts, but it is still a massive jackpot size compared to what other slots offer.
