92 Year Old Man Wins His SECOND Megabucks

Elmer Sherwin's frequent visits to the Cannery Casino & Hotel in North Las Vegas paid off in a way few can imagine when he became the first person in the history of Megabucks(R) to win the top award twice. The $21,147,947 jackpot comes 16 years after his first Megabucks(R) top jackpot of $4.6 million at the Mirage in 1989.

Early Thursday evening, Sherwin eyed a Megabucks(R) machine at the Cannery with a feeling it might be lucky. Over the years, Sherwin has remained a fan of the Megabucks(R) slot from IGT because, as he said, "it pays."

The lucky winner also had another goal in mind when playing Megabucks(R). He wanted to win the top award for the second time. Sherwin said, "I'm glad I finally hit; I've been trying to do it again."
