Biggest slot machine payout
The change would have done me.
Seventy-five cents. But I only put in a quarter, so a 3 to 1 payoff was great. I have probably put all of five bucks into slots over the past 30 years, and this was the only tim I ever cashed out.
Can%26#39;t find reference to a $46+ million jackpot. The one that seems to come up the most via Google is:
';The largest jackpot that has ever been won in Las Vegas was $39.7 million dollars. The Excalibur Hotel and Casino had the hot machine in March of 2003. The jackpot winner was a 25 year old man that was visiting Las Vegas for the NCAA Basketball Tournament. He was lucky enough to turn his $100 dollar investment into an overwhelming $1.5 million dollars a year for the next 25 years. ';
And about a half-dozen similar articles.
there was a woman who lived in vegas who won like 30 million on megabucks at the DI not too long after she was hit by a drunk driver killing her sister and putting her in a wheelchair for life
the article you quoted says the guy turned $100 into millions, so its possibly to spend as little as $100 towin a fortune????? sounds to good to be true, why would ANYPLACE in Vegas allow you to win so much with so little invested?
The ';Megabucks'; machines are part of an interconnected system that includes tens of thousands of machines in hundreds of casinos in Nevada. Each time someone spins the reels a small portion of the bet is put into a jackpot that anyone at any machine may win.
The pay-off starts at $7 million and increases by fractions of cents every second....the longer it is between jackpots, the higher the amount.
It was concieved as a way to win back some of the business Nevada casinos were losing to state lotteries which promised mega-million jackpots and to race tracks offfering big pay-out parlay wagers (such as ';pick six';).
Remember, you MUST have maximum coins in (three is the number I think) to qualify for the big jackpot.
There are also linked quarter and nickle slots which have big pay-outs.
these machines are the ';progressive machines';??
The Megabucks curse: In March 2000, Cynthia Jay-Brennan, a cocktail waitress who had hit a $34.9 million jackpot at the Desert Inn six weeks earlier, was left a quadriplegic by a car wreck. This tragic accident led to the circulation of the ';Megabucks curse'; rumor, and many believe that all winners of Megabucks die tragic deaths shortly after claiming the prize. For instance, in March 2003, the largest-ever slots prize was won in Vegas when a 25-year-old man, who prefers to remain anonymous, hit a $39.7 million Megabucks jackpot at the Excalibur casino. Days later, rumors already were floating around that tragedy had overtaken him. According to the rumors, he had fatally overdosed at the Palms, died in a plane crash or been killed in a gang fight in Los Angeles. None of this is true. According to a spokeswoman of IGT (the maker of the Megabucks machines), the anonymous winner is alive. Other false tales of the Megabucks curse include that of an elderly winner lining up the jackpot only to drop dead on the spot of a heart attack. Johanna Heundl, who was 74 at the time she won the Megabucks jackpot in 2002, handled the surprise win just fine, telling the press she planned to use the money she won to take a trip to Austria.
wow that is very interesting..that poor girl....rumors get started so fast...
I%26#39;ll take that Mega winners curse and take my chances...
as for Amberloo%26#39;s comments. I%26#39;ve had that question for some time. If you with the big millions, do they split it into payments over the years like a lottery, or can you take a lump sum?
