Wicomico Resident Wins $607,739 on IGT MegaHits Slot

A Woman from Wicomico County, Maryland, recently hit it big when she won one of the progressive jackpots from the Casino at Oceans Downs on January 11th. The woman won a total of $607,739 on the MegaBlast MegaHits slot machine, which is part of a linked jackpot between casino and states.

The machine is provided by IGT who's also in charge of the Wide Area Progressive Jackpot in partnership with the Multi-State Lottery Association and the lotteries in Delaware, Maryland, Ohio, Rhode Island and West Virginia. The MegaHits jackpot is the only one available in all five states and provides players with a chance to win life-changing money.

"We are always thrilled when one of our customers walks away with a sizeable jackpot,” said Ocean Downs General Manager Joe Cavilla. "MegaHits has been very popular with our customers, and I’m sure this will make it even more appealing. Our entire team would like to congratulate our customer on this exciting win.”

“Paying the first life-changing jackpot in Maryland on IGT’s MegaHits marks a significant moment in time,” said Tim Shortall, Vice President of Eastern Region Sales for IGT. “A win like this reinforces IGT’s jackpot-paying legacy and unwavering leadership in Wide Area Progressive innovation and deployment. It’s terrific to see our customer Ocean Downs celebrating a win of this magnitude within just a few months of the link going live in Maryland.”
