When people travel to offline casino establishments, most visitors tend to try their luck on progressive slot machines. While games like roulette and blackjack are fun and exciting, slots offer the opportunity to win huge sums of money without placing major stakes.
In roulette, the highest odds are 36/1 (choosing an exact number), but the odds on a slot machine are endless. On some machines, you can win six figure totals and even seven figure totals on others.
Here are four of the biggest wins on progressive jackpot slots.
The Dark Knight slot is one of the most popular movie-based machines to hit the casino floor. In December 2012, John Orchard would win a life-changing sum of money on the Batman machine. If you are playing online with slots from 32Red, for example, it is the sort of win that will have you dreaming. The Briton won an incredible £5.8 million on the slot and earned enough to last him for the remainder of his life. Previously, he was working at the job centre. It’s incredibly likely that he’s moved onto better things now…
Walter and Linda Misco
Imagine winning a 20-year-old jackpot? Well, that’s exactly what this couple did. Playing in the MGM Grand, Walter and Linda won over £1.5 million on ‘The Lion’s Share’ – one of the most famous progressive slot machines in Las Vegas. After staking £60, or $100 in relative terms, they emerged from the casino with an extraordinary pool of money that, according to reports, would help to buy a new car and pay for their grandchildren to get through university.

Mystery Winner (on Sky Vegas)
While this winner wanted to remain anonymous, they certainly improved his stock in the real world with this epic win. Mega Moolah, one of the games available on a number of online establishments, including Casino Euro, Casino Rewards and 32Red, was hit in June 2014 and paid out an astonishing £1.88 million. Strangely, the jackpot had been hit every month between September and December in the previous year but went untouched – hence the huge sum of money. At 25p a spin, the mystery winner certainly got incredibly lucky and made a tidy profit for him/herself.
Huiman X won two decent sums of money at an online casino, picking up over £70,000 collectively on two spins on the High Society and Beach Babes slot machine. This particular slot machine is not one of the biggest and most recognisable machines in the casino environment, but Huiman X certainly won’t care after he picked up two major amounts of cash on the machine in mid-2014. In terms of casino wins compared to the likes of Las Vegas, this wasn’t a massive win but the chances of winning back-to-back on online slots is incredibly rare and Huiman X’s achievement should be considered nothing less than exceptional.
