Wheel of Fortune slots making many millionaires

In less than one week, IGT has handed out over $6 million in jackpot prizes through its Wheel of Fortune slots machines in both Iowa and Nevada.  The first jackpot was hit at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on October 15th. The prize won exceeded $2.43 million.

Only the next day, a second jackpot was won at the Montbleu Resort Casino and Spa with a lucky player taking home almost $1.5 million. The last winner, a man from Iowa, hit a $2.95 million jackpot at the Meskwaki Bingo Casion Hotel in Tama, Iowa.

In total, IGT has paid out over $5.89 million dollars to three lucky winners in less than one week. And in the 10 months of 2013, so far 24 other people have become millionaires while playing IGT slots games. A total of $59 million has been paid out since the beginning of the year. Wheel of Fortune belongs to a line of slots games called MegaJackpots. MegaJackpots was first released in 1986 and has since then paid out almost $6 billion dollars to over 1500 newly created millionaires.
