Megabucks is a progressive jackpot slot machine that has been developed by IGT. The last time someone hit the jackpot playing Megabucks was on the 8th of August 2017, winning $11.85 million.

The biggest jackpot since 2004 saw one lucky player win $33 million in 2009, while the record for the biggest Megabucks jackpot is $34.95 million, which was won in 2000.
The Megabucks slot offers a base jackpot of $10 million, so it had increased by just under $200 000 since the last win. In order to win the jackpot, players need to wager the maximum amount, which is $3. The slot game can be found in many casinos in Nevada, including top casinos on the Las Vegas strip. This means that there are thousands of slots all feeding into the jackpot, waiting to change the life of a very lucky gambler.
