Reno saw a record-breaking slot machine jackpot on Sunday night, as a result of just a $10 bet. A player won a $14 million IGT Megabucks jackpot at Atlantis Casino Resort Spa, making it the largest slot machine jackpot in the city's history. This was also the first Megabucks jackpot to hit in Nevada in two years.
The winner, a Reno woman who asked to remain anonymous, was a longtime guest of the resort, according to a news release from Atlantis. She won the jackpot after playing Megabucks Mega Vault for 40 minutes, as reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Toni Martinez, IGT vice president of Western Region & Mexico sales, said she was pleased the resort could experience “property-wide excitement” after the win. “With a $10 million top progressive jackpot reset value, no slot jackpot in the U.S. rivals the size or thrill of IGT’s legendary Megabucks game,” she said in a release.
In other recent IGT news, the company has recently announced an agreement with B2B gifting technology platform Gift & Go, set to modernize casino loyalty club prizing through integration with IGT's casino management system.
The relationship will provide casino operators that utilize IGT's ADVANTAGE CMS the option to add Gift & Go's on-demand gifting technology platform to their slot machines' service window or secondary display via IGT's M5 content management technology.
Once deployed, the Gift & Go integration will enable casino players to participate in promotional gift programs on slot machines for an array of goods that are fulfilled via Amazon Business.
