Biggest Winners In The History of Las Vegas

We all have dreams of leaving Las Vegas the winner of a huge jackpot. While it may not happen for us, we continue to have hope because regular people just like you and me do continue to win and some happen to win very big.

Although some might think that the big winners in the Las Vegas Casinos are the professionals that sit and play for hours upon end. It's not the big spenders or the professional players that are walking away with the huge jackpots. It's normal everyday people that just decided to give lady luck a chance.

The biggest winners to date are all winners of the huge progressive jackpot game called Megabucks. The Megabucks jackpot starts at $7 million dollars and continues to grow until there is a winner. Megabucks has a network of slot machines in over 150 locations throughout Nevada. More players adds up to a higher jackpot.

At the age of 92 Elmer Sherwin won the Megabucks jackpot for the second time. Twenty one years after his first win, Mr. Sherwin hit the Megabucks jackpot again for $21 million. His first win was for $4.6 million and he seemed content with that. He has plans to donate his second Megabucks Jackpot to the Hurricane Katrina victims. He has traveled the world with winnings from his first jackpot and thought that it was time to give back. His winnings will be paid out in yearly installments.

Amy Nishimura from Hawaii was another big winner. At 71, Nishimura was in Las Vegas on vacation and was lucky enough to hit a jackpot worth $8.9 million dollars. She was another winner of Megabucks, and Ms. Nishimura said that she had dreamed about winning before she hit the jackpot. She only spent about $100 playing the slots and came out a huge winner.

The largest jackpot that has ever been won in Las Vegas was $39.7 million dollars. The Excalibur Hotel and Casino had the hot machine in March of 2003. The jackpot winner was a 25 year old man that was visiting Las Vegas for the NCAA Basketball Tournament. He was lucky enough to turn his $100 dollar investment into an overwhelming $1.5 million dollars a year for the next 25 years.

While we can all continue to dream, these big winners are all just like you and me. They took a chance and luck just happened to be on their side. Mr. Sherwin is proof that lady luck doesn't necessarily only come around once.
