Everyone who puts money into a slot machine dreams of hitting it big, but the vast majority never do. One lucky slot player in Reno, Nevada, though, hit it really big, turning a $10 bet into a $14m jackpot win, the largest-ever slot machine jackpot won in the city’s history. The unnamed local woman was playing on a Megabucks machine at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa when she made the once-in-a-lifetime score.

She wasn’t even supposed to be staying at the casino that day because she was set to go on a cruise. When it was cancelled, she decided to extend her stay at Atlantis. The property’s general manager Cheraz Ecker said the casino staff was extremely happy about the long-time patron’s big win.

The Megabucks slot machine is a popular game at many casinos around Nevada and carries a progressive jackpot. It has been on the scene since its release by IGT in 1986.

It marks the first Megabucks progressive jackpot victory in the state since April 2021. While it was a record-breaking win for Reno, the biggest-ever Megabucks jackpot victory in Nevada was $39.7m, hit in 2003 at the Excalibur Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
