The progressive jackpot MegaBucks , one of the largest in the world, has just rewarded a live player with a net gain of $11.8 million . The win was made in Las Vegas at the Fremont Hotel & Casino by a particularly lucky player.
A record for 2017
With MegaBucks, IGT has one of the most powerful progressive networks in the world. The firm has not been very generous in details on this win that took place on Tuesday, August 8, 2017. We can say that the player in question bet the maximum spin at $ 3 for being able to win such a large gain. After one of his spins returned $ 11,856,654, the player no longer knew if it was reality.
It is the biggest MegaBucks jackpot of this year 2017 but this sum is still far behind the absolute record of IGT. In March 2003, a 25-year-old had managed to cash a record jackpot of $ 39 million (by spending only $ 100 on the game). To date, no live jackpots have gone beyond.
According to IGT, the progressive jackpot MegaBucks launched in 1986 has made over $ 1 billion in winnings!
