As a surprise for his wife, Joey Penn booked a Las Vegas vacation to coincide with Las Vegas Market at World Market Center. A last minute arrangement, Penn took advantage of a slot tournament at Wynn Las Vegas which turned out to be a life-changing decision. Penn hit a $12,317,717 Megabucks® jackpot last night at Wynn Las Vegas, just a few minutes before 7 p.m. "It's Christmas in July, that's for sure," said Penn.

With only one credit left to play, the savvy player knew he didn't want to play without the max coin in. After inserting $100 into the machine, Penn watched as the Megabucks® eagles lined up in front of him. "I saw the first two symbols and thought, 'that's got to be good.' Then the third symbol lined up and I said, 'That's the big one!' "

Usually $5 slot players, Penn's wife, Melissa, had talked him into playing the two Megabucks® machines next to her. In fact, Penn's wife had just hit a $3,000 jackpot earlier on the same bank of four Megabucks machines. "She told me to sit down and play it," said Penn, giving full credit to his wife for having made the winning suggestion.
