Million-dollar jackpot winners playing slot machines are one of the biggest reasons why this form of real money gambling drives most of the revenue at land-based casinos. Hitting a large seven-figure jackpot is more common than you think given the vast number of real money casinos that are currently up and running all across the country. However, a hit of $3.2 million in the gambling capital of the world will always attract a real money gambler’s attention.
In a recent post on CDC Gaming Reports’ website on the CDC Newswire, an IGT Wheel of Fortune slot machine at Silverton Casino Hotel in Las Vegas just made one lucky slot machine player a whole lot richer with a $3,225,340 jackpot on a $5 wager.
The jackpot was won on June 9 on the Wheel Of Fortune Wedges Video Slots game. This was originally announced in a press release by International Game Technology PLC as the manufacturer of this slot machine. It was also mentioned in this release that this was the largest million-dollar jackpot winner in 2018 playing a Wheel of Fortune slot machine. It was also the biggest jackpot ever in the history of the famed Silverton Casino Hotel.
The winner of this multi-million-dollar jackpot chose to remain anonymous for obvious reasons. However, it was discovered that the winning bet was five dollars. The Wheel of Fortune Winning Wedges Video Slots is a penny-denomination slot machine with a progressive jackpot that started at $500,000.
IGT has become world renowned in the casino industry as one of the best gaming design and manufacturing companies in the world.

One of the most recent endeavors by IGT is to help the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City get its sportsbook up and running in light of New Jersey’s recent decision to legalize sports betting in its casinos and race tracks.
