IGT's Megabucks delivers $1.1 million jackpot to one lucky player at Mohegan Sun

12 March 2014

LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- "Mega" was the prevailing theme, when one lucky player hit a mega-sized $1,137,006.44 jackpot on global gaming entertainment leader, IGT's (IGT) famed MegaJackpots game, Megabucks $1 Spinning Reel - Double 3x4x5x Times Pay® at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT on March 7, 2014.

The winner, who wished to remain anonymous, stated this was not the player's first brush with luck in the casino, sharing that the slot enthusiast was "familiar to winning" and had hit several sizable jackpots in the past. Even given this history of winning ways, the Mohegan Sun guest was "rattled for a couple moments" when seeing the amount of the colossal win. The player immediately called family to share the great news, stating that family members were in disbelief when they heard the news. Although this player plays a variety of machines, the winner often carves out time to stop by Megabucks because it is known for big hits.

IGT launched the MegaJackpots progressive product line in 1986 and has since produced thousands of winners with jackpots ranging from $1 million to the world-record slot jackpot of more than $39 million.
