Gambling Metropolis is back with your guide to the biggest and best online casino jackpot wins during May 2017. There weren’t quite as many millionaires made through one simple spin this month as there was during April, but we highly doubt that will bother the lucky devils who managed to snag the top bonanzas. After we’ve given you details about the largest jackpot drops in May 2017, we’ll end as we always do – giving you a few examples of some of the best slots to play for wannabe-millionaires right now.
Before we get to that, though, let Gambling Metropolis take you through the biggest jackpot wins from May 2017!
We begin again with Mega Moolah from Microgaming, with £2.7million awarded to one extremely fortunate gamer on 22nd May. Most of our jackpot hits came towards the end of the month in this edition, with the phrase “patience is a virtue” being truly appropriate.
£2.7million… The identity of the player has remained a secret ever since, but we’re sure they’ve already gone about putting that money to good use. New house, round-the-world holiday, a gambler’s trip to Las Vegas? The possibilities are endless.
Yet again providing the Mega Moolah backup is NetEnt’s Mega Fortune series, but unlike April it’s the older sibling that takes the runner-up position. Dropping on the final weekend of May (Saturday 27th) at SuperLenny, it was a Norwegian punter with a deposit of €20 and a 2-hour journey who eventually snagged the €3.2million jackpot.
Yes, it is [their first big win], but I have won €45,000 before! – Anonymous Mega Fortune Winner
The internet casino managed to get a few words from the anonymous gamer, who said their first purchase would be a “nice house and a nice car”. When asked about their reaction to scooping the Mega Fortune jackpot, they said a recent illness kept events low-key for now, “but I will celebrate for sure!”.
Head over to SuperLenny directly to start playing jackpot slots, and remember that big prizes don’t always come in an instant. To tantalise your taste buds somewhat, here’s a video of a Swede scooping €3.3million on Mega Fortune from Casumo in March of this year.
Playtech are the third and final games designer whose jackpot slot created a millionaire in May 2017, as more than €2.5million was emptied as someone struck gold the Saturday before Mega Fortune.
We all like to head to the beach for a relaxing few hours – soak up the sun, do a bit of swimming and generally do very little. However, Playtech have gone for the pure shock factor with Beach Life slot, as there’s no elaborate bonus round section to determine whether you’re a jackpot winner. Just spin those reels, and if they fall correctly then you’ll be taking away the top prize.
Finally, just missing out on the podium is Major Millions, a less popular Microgaming slot than Mega Moolah but one that is highly lucrative all the same. Landing on Sunday 14th May (weekends were clearly highly profitable gambling days during this month!), £1.9million was deposited into a player’s account.
Coincidentally, the Major Millions jackpot was previously won on 14th April, so any gamers who believe in fate should have a few spins on 14th June to try and complete the hat-trick!

From our recent article highlighting the best jackpots to play on payday at the end of May, 5 of the 6 are still high up for grabs. The change comes from the aforementioned Mega Fortune drop from NetEnt, with an example replacement being Aztec’s Millions by Real Time Gaming which comes in at $2.2million.
