Winner Bags $11.8M Jackpot

A man from Southern California, who was holidaying in Las Vegas, hit the jackpot at the Fremont Hotel and Casino in August 2017.

The lucky winner, identified only as ‘Rodolfo T’, made a $3 bet on the IGT Megabucks Double 3X4X5X game, and landed a Megabucks jackpot of a whopping $11.8m (£9m)!

Despite having seen many wins over the years, the Fremont Vice President and General Manager, Jim Sullivan, said that this win was one of a kind.

“The Fremont has awarded many thousands of jackpots throughout its 60-year history in Las Vegas, but none quite like this,” he said.  “We’re incredibly excited to be a part of this amazing jackpot.”

Rodolfo’s massive win was not a record-breaker however, as to date, the highest Megabucks jackpot payout was in 2003, when a winner took home an incredible $39.7 million from Las Vegas’s Excalibur Hotel Casino.

The Megabucks machine has reset at $10 million, so there’s still a chance for one lucky punter to be made into a millionaire!
