A Florida slots player struck it big last week at Bellagio, hitting a $1,094,560.56 jackpot on a “Wheel of Fortune” progressive slot.
IGT, which produces the MegaJackpots games, announced the jackpot in a news release today.
The winner, identified only as a Florida resident, was visiting Las Vegas with family on June 7 when she was hit the jackpot on a “Wheel of Fortune” MegaJackpots game at Bellagio. Winning the jackpot prompted her to extend her stay in Las Vegas a few more days, according to IGT.
IGT has paid out more than 1,500 jackpots, totaling nearly $6 billion since it launched the MegaJackpots progressive product line in 1986, the company said.
