The woman, whose identity was not revealed, won a record-breaking slot machine jackpot, turning her $10 bet into a Megabucks Jackpot of $14,005,832.09. After consulting with IGT, the casino declared that this was the biggest Megabucks jackpot ever won in Reno.

This is another amazing milestone to celebrate in our company’s history and it’s verifiable proof that our award-winning property in northern Nevada truly is every player’s paradise.”

“IGT is thrilled that Atlantis Casino Resort Spa in Reno, Nevada could experience the property-wide excitement of a colossal, $14 million-plus Megabucks jackpot on its gaming floor,” he said.
“With a $10 million top progressive jackpot reset value, no slot jackpot in the US rivals the size or thrill of IGT’s legendary Megabucks game.”
