One lucky player experienced a life-changing jackpot after winning a colossal $10,744,293 on Megabucks video slot at Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.

Approximately four hours later, a slot enthusiast spun her way to success when she won a sizzling $1,026,648 on a Wheel of Fortune game at Prairie Wind Casino & Hotel in South Dakota.

Later that night, a lucky guest at Paris Las Vegas won the first IGT Powerbucks $1 million jackpot, adding a hot new game title to IGT's storied jackpot-paying legacy. 

No one pays jackpots like IGT. IGT Megabucks' mega-payout history has generated more than $1 billion since its inception in 1987. The world record slot jackpot was on IGT's Megabucks and paid out $39 million in 2003. IGT launched Wheel of Fortune Slots in 1996 and solidified the Company's leadership in Wide Area Progressive technology. The fan-favorite theme has minted nearly 1,000 millionaires and delivered $3 billion in jackpots throughout its illustrious history.
