IGT's Wheel of Fortune Slot Machine Creating Three Millionaires in 72 Hours

IGT's Wheel of Fortune Slot Machine Creating Three Millionaires in 72 Hours

We all looked up at the blinking screen on top of the slot machines in the local casino and wished that we would be the one who would hit the huge jackpot and not have to worry about money again for a long long time. For three very lucky players in the US, this wish came true as IGT's Wheel of Fortune slot machine decided to pay out $1,000,000 and more out to three players, three days in a row.

This amazing coincidence started on June 14th where a lucky player hit a $1,557,384 jackpot at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut. The very next day at the San Manuel Indian Bingo and Casino in Highland, California, another slot enthusiast won a jackpot on IGT's Wheel of Fortune slot machine, this time $1,341,641.

Lastly the trio was completed as a player in Thackerville, Oklahoma, hit yet another Wheel of Fortune jackpot at the Winstar World Casino and Resort, winning a jackpot prize of $1,124,777. All three winners decided to remain anonymous, so we haven't gotten any comment from them on their jackpot wins, but it is extraordinary that a slot machine gives a jackpot three times in three days.

The MegaJackpots progressive product line, which Wheel of Fortune is included in, was created in 1986 by IGT and has jackpots ranging from $1,000,000 all the way up to the world biggest jackpot of $39,000,000.
