A lucky participant in Las Vegas struck gold recently at the Excalibur Hotel & Casino, winning a staggering sum of $12,185,766, making them a mystery millionaire. The jackpot-prize was won last week on a Megabucks Spitfire Multipliers Triple Red Hot 7s machine.
No further details have been released as to the winner’s plans for the windfall. So far in 2023, this marks the fourth instance of a Megabucks machine yielding a payout exceeding $1M. It was also the third million-dollar payout within the Las Vegas Valley. Among all the state’s Megabucks winnings this year, it claims the second-highest spot.
Earlier last week, a Las Vegas local, Charmaine Maillet, came into a fortune of $91,069 while engaging in a game of dual action bingo at the Rampart Casino, part of the JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa. It reportedly took her 34 numbers before a payout.
