$10.7 Million MegaBucks Jackpot Won At Westgate
Despite the near impossible odds the infamous MegaBucks slot machine has crowned another multimillionaire, awarding a $10.7 Million jackpot this past weekend at the Westgate hotel in Vegas. The winner was a 78 year old woman from Utah who was playing the $1 denomination of the machine and won the jackpot at around 1pm local time, after putting $100 in the machine and playing for just under 10 minutes.
According to the hotel spokesperson, this was the first time the patron had ever visited the Westgate (formerly the Vegas Hilton) and had come to watch one of her friends who was playing in a blackjack tournament at the property. As fate would have it, she beat the 1 in 50 million odds of getting 3 Megabucks symbols on the center payline to win the overall jackpot. For those of you who aren’t familiar, the Megabucks slot is a progressive slot machine that’s linked between dozens of casinos across the United States. Each time someone makes a wager on the machine, a small % of bets is taken and pooled into the larger progressive jackpots that can be won by players.
This is definitely going to be one of the biggest slot jackpot wins this year in Vegas, and comes after another elusive slot known as Lions Share was hit last year at the MGM Grand.
