The risk-loving suitcase man
William Bergstrom, also known as the ‘suitcase man’ arrived at the Binion’s Horseshoe Casino in 1980. He came at the casino in Las Vegas with two suitcases, one had $777,000 in it while the second one was empty. He placed the entire amount on his bet and won double the money on a solo dice roll. Luckily, he walked away with both suitcases filled with his prize money.
Megabucks machines in Las Vegas
These machines are world-famous for giving out some of the biggest jackpot prizes. John Tippin, who was a postal worker, won $11 million at the Megabucks Slot Machine in 1996. In 1998, the Megabucks jackpot crossed over $20 million for the first time, when a retired flight attendant gambled more than the total amount that could be put at stake ($300) at Palace Station Hotel and Casino. It fetched a whopping $27.5 million jackpot.
The double winner
Another well-known Megabucks story is that of Elmer Sherwin, who played and won twice — once in 1989 when he won $4.6 million, and then again in 2005 when he won a massive $21.1 million at the age of 92.
The casual winner
In 2002, a 74-year-old woman named Johanna Huendl of Covina, California, stopped to enjoy some breakfast and casually put about $170 into a Megabucks slot machine. She ended up winning $22.6 million.
