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.
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.
