66 Year Old Wins Over $18 Million in The Largest Penny Slot Jackpot Ever

A Nevada man's wildest dreams came true on February 1st following his win at the MegaJackpot of $18,799,414 after investing a single penny. The prize is the largest penny slot jackpot ever won.

"On my way over to the casino this morning," said the yet to be named 66-year-old man, "I actually thought about playing Penny Megabucks(R). I don't know why because I normally play video poker. So after rolling several practice games, I went to have lunch and on the way back to the lanes, I stopped to play slots at Penny Megabucks(R)."

"I put in $100 and after playing $44, I saw 5 eagles line up and thought I had won about $3,000," he added. "Then I looked up, and the large jackpot on top of the machine had switched from $18 million to $10 million. Then I knew I had won something big."

When asked about what he plans to do with the money, the winner said that he will be paying off some bills before taking his wife on a long trip to Australia.

"It's exciting to make history with this penny MegaJackpot(R)," said Ed Rogich, Vice President of Marketing for IGT, the developer of penny Megabucks(R) game. "Penny slots are enormously popular, and this huge jackpot proves that they have a place in gaming history."
