High Slots Jackpot Wins in 2020

Jackpot slot games continue to be popular and the different types of jackpots that are up for grabs have also increased. There are far more games now where the jackpot is linked to the wagering value of each spin. Some slots at Umbingo contain four different jackpots instead of the standard 3. These come in the shape of mini, minor, major, and grand jackpots. Mini jackpots are the easiest to win but on a minimum stake, they can be as little as just £2.

The progressive jackpots continue to be the headline makers, and this is mostly down to the enormous sums of cash that are on the line. Networked jackpots such as the jackpot king have prize money up for grabs that rival a lottery win and this is why jackpot chasing has become a growing trend with the slot playing public.

2020 was another year that saw some outrageous amounts of cash being won across the globe by those lucky enough to be on the receiving end of a jackpot-winning spin. So, with this in mind, here is a rundown of the highest slot jackpot wins of 2020.

Pennsylvania Fairy Tale

Imagine if you are down on your luck and unemployed as well. Your thoughts would be bleak ones for the future. This was the stark reality facing a former restaurant worker from Pennsylvania until she decided to give Divine Fortune a spin. Luckily for her, the slot lived up to its name and delivered a $443,480 jackpot win. Lynn was playing the game on her mobile phone when she landed the progressive mega jackpot. Lynn used the money wisely and paid off her debts first and part of what remained was saved for a very special Christmas.

Yggdrasil to The Rescue

Empire Fortune by Yggdrasil is the next game in question that delivered a special jackpot win for another very lucky individual. In May 2020 a player was spinning the reels at their favourite online casino when they landed the Empire Fortune progressive jackpot of €4.2 million.

Mega Moolah Does It Again

Mega Moolah by Microgaming is a slot that often hits the headlines due to its monstrous progressive jackpots. When you play this jungle-themed slot, you can find yourself wondering what all the fuss is about. The base game is nothing special but because of the random jackpot wheel feature, the slot has proved popular enough to spawn some slot game spin-offs. It is one of these that delivered a €7.7 million win for an online casino player courtesy of Atlantean Treasures Mega Moolah.

In April 2020 the original Mega Moolah slot decided that it was time to part with €10.7 million and one lucky player walked off with the lot. The best from Mega Moolah was saved for last and August proved a very lucky month for one player in Sweden who was left €14.2 million richer thanks to this hugely unpredictably slot game. With the popularity of slots sky high, 2021 may crown even bigger jackpot winners.
