One gambler is going home a lot richer after hitting the Megabucks jackpot for $10.6 million at Aria on Friday evening.

A spokesperson for MGM Resorts International confirmed the win but said the gambler has asked to remain anonymous. No additional information was released.

The Megabucks win is the second at Aria this year. In January, another gambler won $12.7 million after playing just $6 at the slot.

Reno-based gaming supply company International Game Technology is the maker of the Megabucks product line, which launched in 1986. The largest jackpot ever paid out was $39 million, won in March 2003 at the Excalibur.

  1. Nope - to win any of those big progressive jackpots, you have to play max coins, max lines.

  2. Meanwhile, over at Caesar's, a guy loses his shirt and jumps to his death from the parking garage...
    The thrill of victory, and the agony of defeat.
