$1 million at Oklahoma casino
Michael Washam from Plano, Texas, won $1,185,286 while playing an Indiana Jones 3-D MegaJackpot® penny slot machine, made by International Game Technology (IGT), at Choctaw Casino Resort in Durant, Oklahoma.
The slot machine played by Washam is considered a “Wide-Area Progressive,” which is an electronically linked gaming machine, offering large, progressive jackpots to customers in many gaming venues, simultaneously. Choctaw Casino Resort is one of more than 300 tribal casinos across the nation that belongs to the 17-state Native American progressive gaming network.
The Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade™ 3-D Slot MegaJackpot® combines the action of previous Indiana Jones branded machines with 3-dimensional reels for even more aesthetic gaming pleasure. In addition, there is a 20-stop bonus wheel that multiplies pay-outs. Bets are made in penny, two cent and 5 cent denominations with a maximum bet of 40 credits ($2.00).
“We are thrilled to be a part of such a life-changing event for Mr. Washam,” said Tammye Gwin, senior director of gaming. “Mr. Washam was very surprised and elated to have won such a huge jackpot. He’s part of an elite group that came in for fun and excitement and left a millionaire,” said Ms. Gwin.
