You may have noticed, but in 2023, online casinos in Canada were big news… and we expect no less in 2024. But what is it that keeps players coming back for more? Well, it has to be that desire to hit the big wins – the jackpot!
Canada has some of the biggest and best casinos in the world – and, unsurprisingly, that means you can hit some of the biggest and best jackpots in the world at these casinos. And 2023 was definitely a year that saw a number of lucky players walk away with a big boost to their bank balance. Let’s take a look at some of the biggest jackpot wins at online casinos in Canada in 2023…
Mega Moolah: $10 Million
If we are talking about big jackpot wins, there’s always one name in the mix… Mega Moolah. The Mega Moolah slot has made headlines by creating its second millionaire in 2023. In a stroke of luck, a Canadian player hit the Mega Jackpot – and managed to secure an impressive CA$10,013,172.23 win. What’s more, they won this money all from using bonus funds.
The Mega Moolah Jackpot, quite rightly, one of the most renowned online jackpot slots, has paid out over 929 million since its inception, with its largest ever win reaching €19,430,723.60.
While this Canadian player didn’t quite break that record, their April 6th, 2023 win of CA$10,013,172 came from just a $6.25 bet using their bonus money on the original Mega Moolah slot machine. Remarkably, this fortunate win was achieved using casino bonus credits – without any wagering requirements!
Mega Vault: $8.3 Million
The third Mega Moolah Jackpot win this year has crowned a fortunate slots player in Canada with a massive $8,312,798 win on the Mega Vault Millionaire slot game.
This latest jackpot win on June 17th, 2023, happened just after the Mega Moolah prize pot reached over 8 million – which fell just 2 million short of another Canadian player’s impressive CA$10,013,172 win in April 2023.
Marcelo Loyola, a Toronto-based solutions contractor and member of Great Canadian Rewards at Casino Woodbine, walked away with a massive $3.2 million progressive jackpot… a win he attributes to his late girlfriend.
Marking his 50th birthday on April 2, Loyola faced tragedy on April 5 with the sudden passing of his long-time partner. Still grappling with the unforeseen and profound loss, he ventured to Casino Woodbine, somewhere they both loved to visit.
Playing her favorite slot, almost instantly, the machine erupted in flashes and notifications, drawing a thrilled crowd of spectators and casino staff who shared in the excitement of the $3.2 million winner.
There have been many more big wins… let’s not forget about those seriously massive lottery jackpot wins, with one Torontonian player scooping a massive $68 million, the largest jackpot in Lotto 6/49 history.
These massive wins, whether at an online casino, land-based casino or on the jackpot, are fascinating, and noteworthy and give you something to dream about. Here’s to those who hit the jackpot in 2024!
