The world’s most famous big-hitting jackpot slot machine is the Megabucks slot. Boasting the biggest slot machine win in history (so far!). back in March 2003 a 25 year old software engineer from Los Angeles won a whopping $39.7 million after putting $100 in the Megabucks slot at the Excalibur casino resort in Vegas.

Only a few millions behind him is Cynthia Jay-Brennan, 37, who won $34.9million on a Megabucks slot in January 2000. This Vegas cocktail waitress won big at the legendary Desert Inn Casino and, while joyous at the time, faced tragedy just six weeks later when she was paralysed, and her sister killed, in a car accident. This unfortunate accident further fuelled the myth of the curse of the Megabucks jackpot winners.

Going further back to 1998, a 67 year old retired air hostess from Las Vegas put $300 in the Megabucks slot at the Palace Station casino and was rewarded with a Jackpot of $27.5million. Incredibly, the same woman had previously won a $680,000 jackpot on a Wheel of Fortune slot machine at the same casino! And they say lightning never strikes in the same place twice!

One of the most recent big Megabucks wins came is 2011 when a woman put just $6 in the Megabucks machine at the Aria casino and hotel. It’s said that she originally couldn’t believe her win and thought that the machine must be faulty!

Money Vault Millionaire’s Seven

While it can’t compete with the big Megabucks jackpots, the Money Vault Millionaires Seven slot is one of the other machines that’s seen a big Vegas win. As recently as February 2012, a 26 year old US Marine won $2.9million on this slot at the world famous Bellagio casino.

Wheel Of Fortune

Spinners of the Wheel of Fortune are regularly rewarded with wins of hundreds of thousands of dollars, however, a recent win at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino smashed the $1million mark with a rare high win of $1.8million.

While these huge slot machine jackpot wins are impressive, the good news is that there’s no need to head to Vegas to win big on exciting jackpot slots. Jackpot247 has a great selection of fun, jackpot slots or progressive slots that you can enjoy playing from home.
