IGT's Wheel of Fortune mints two millionaires in one week in Bossier City, Louisiana

21 March 2014

LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Last week IGT (IGT), a global leader in compelling gaming entertainment, awarded a grand total of $2,070,224.30 on Wheel of Fortune slots at Horseshoe Bossier City Hotel & Casino and Margaritaville Resort Casino in Bossier City, LA.


Paul T. of Lorena, Texas grabbed his $1,043,362.84 jackpot at the Horseshoe Bossier City Hotel and Casino on the Wheel of Fortune Spinning Reel - Double 3x4x5x Times Pay. He had traveled to the casino with his wife and mother for a short vacation. An avid fan of table games, he was introduced to IGT's Wheel of Fortune a year and a half ago during his last trip to Las Vegas, when he won a $2,000 jackpot on the legendary slot game. When the jackpot hit on IGT's Wheel of Fortune this time, the new millionaire could hardly believe it, while his mother became overwhelmed. Having gone through some hardships during the last couple of years, Paul T.'s family feels that the MegaJackpot happened just in time.

The second win occurred in the same city at Margaritaville Resort Casino, a property less than a mile down the road, located on the Red River. This time it was the Wheel of Fortune Double Diamond 2x Fire that created yet another millionaire with a $1,026,861.46 jackpot. The lucky winner preferred to stay anonymous.

IGT's MegaJackpots were launched in 1986 and has since created more than 1,500 millionaires with nearly 6 billion dollars in jackpots awarded.
