Big wins just keep coming in the WowPot series. This time, it’s a lucky player from the UK that landed the big win. What makes this win even bigger is that it’s a Mega win. As a result, the player walked away with a jaw-dropping €17,529,047.11 (£15,183,085.96). This makes it the first-ever Mega win on the WowPot.

Events Leading to the Massive Win

A UK player who is a member of the 32Red Casino became the first player to win the Mega jackpot in the WowPot series. This happened on Wednesday 14 April 2021. Just when you thought a low wager couldn’t land you a big win and then boom! This lucky player placed a £0.80 on the famous Book of Atem: WowPot. 

The win now sees the player join a list of esteemed jackpot winners that contains 93 euro millionaires. The Microgaming progressive jackpot network has paid out over €1.3 billion. This is across the developer’s jackpot games at this point. 

Apart from that, the win ranks as the biggest win in the history of the WowPot series. It even beats the Major win of €1,123,513.15 in Sisters of Oz™: WowPot won in March 2021.
