WowPot Mega Jackpot Well Overdue to Hit

The previous highest payout from a WowPot Mega Jackpot was £15.2 million on 13th April 2021.

Huge Progressive Jackpot Slot Winners
The lucky winner will be the recipient of one of the largest progressive jackpot payouts ever. The prize pot would be more than the €19.4 million (£16.1 million) won in 2021 by a Belgian who was playing Absolootly Mad Mega Moolah - another Microgaming progressive jackpot.
The WowPot Jackpot would also eclipse the $21 million (£17.4 million) won by Elmer Sherwin from Las Vegas’ Mirage Casino in 2005 - the second time he scooped the top prize from that casino.
The largest progressive jackpot win came in 2003, when one player won $37.1 million (£30.7 million) on a Megabucks slot while playing at the Excalibur Casino.
There’s every chance for the next player of a WowPot Jackpot slot to enter the history books, as the prize pot is there to be won at any time.
