Man Wins $3.6 Million Progressive Jackpot at Barona Casino

The Barona Casino and Resort in San Diego, California, had their biggest jackpot win in the history of the casino this weekend, as a man from San Pedro visited the casino and won a massive $3.6 million. The jackpot was won on the Megabucks progressive slots, which covers multiple casinos and paid out a total of $3,617,318 to Thomas K as the winner wants to be known by.

Thomas K and his wife were taking a few days off work to go to the resort and relax, when they decided to try their luck in the casino. Since the two were regular guests at the casino they went to the Megabucks progressive jackpot slot machine and took some spins before winning the big prize.

“A summer of fun at Barona is just heating up and we’ve already had one of the biggest jackpot winners in our history,” General Manager of Barona Casino and Resort, Rick Salinas said in a press release. “We are proud to offer the loosest slots in Southern California so it was a thrill to see Thomas win millions.”

It was not told what Thomas and his wife wants to spend their newly found fortune on, but having a total of eight kids we are sure that they will find something to spend it all on.

Megabucks is a slot machine produced by IGT, which has been in casinos for the past 25 years and sees great popularity due to its area jackpots which makes them grow rapidly. IGT also creates online games which you can play with some of the biggest online casinos.
