Congratulations to Mr J Heywood in the UK for winning 13M GBP on Betway’s Mega Moolah Progressive Slots.
Mr Heywood is a British Army soldier who won over 13M GBP on Tuesday October 6. After depositing a total of 30 GBP into Betway, he placed a number of 25p bets on Mega Moolah and hit the jackpot after only 7 minutes of playing.
Mr Heywood has a number of thoughts on how he will be spending his money. “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’s father was waiting for a heart and lung transplant at the time of his winning.
He also plans to treat his family to a luxurious cruise around the Mediterranean.
“I’m trying not to get carried away and I really don’t know what else I’m going to buy with the money…apart from a yellow Bently Continental GT…I never even dreamed of driving a Betnley, let alone owning one. I’ve got a Fiat Punto at the moment!”
Having become a millionare practically overnight, Jon interesting kept his life-changing fortune a big secret until the official prize presentation.
“The only people I’ve been able to tell so far are my superiors at work, my girlfriend and my parents. No one thought it was real. They might do once they see my picture in the paper!”
This big win set a new world record win Jon’s winning being the equivalent of 17,879,645 EUR at the time of his winning, which beat the previous record won in Finland of 17,861,813 in 2013.
We can only begin to imagine how Jon’s life will change going forward, but as this big win shows and as he indicates, “”It just shows that the biggest prizes can be won from the smallest stakes – Mega Moolah has really lived up to its name.”
