Most slot players know there are progressive jackpots involved with some slots. These games tend to be among the most popular, since they provide a chance to win a life-changing amount of money. Their popularity also means the jackpot totals rise far faster than they might otherwise do.
So, who won the most on a slot machine? Well, we can look to Las Vegas for the answer to this one. A lucky guy in his mid-twenties won a cool $39.7 million back in 2003 when he played the Megabucks slot machine. Appropriate name, don’t you think? He decided to wager $100 to take a spin on the machine and ended up with megabucks as a result! This occurred at the Excalibur Casino. While some have won millions elsewhere in Vegas since then, no one has come close to winning anywhere near that much. We wonder if that guy ever went back to work?
