A player hit the biggest jackpot in the casino, $17.3 million on the Megabucks slot machine, Friday night in Henderson.

The M Resort said on its Facebook page that the winning spin paid $17,329,817 on the Nevada statewide progressive jackpot.

The jackpot has been reset and currently stands at $10 million.

Officials at IGT, which manufactures the slot and pays out the progressives, say they are still gathering information this morning. The Sun will provided updated details as they become available.

The latest win came nearly two years after a woman hit a $12.7 million Megabucks jackpot Jan. 21, 2011, at the Aria. The record remains $39.7 million to a California software engineer March 21, 2003, at the Excalibur.
