A Henderson man won a Megabucks wide-area progressive slot machine jackpot totaling nearly $10.2 million on Saturday at Fiesta Henderson. Though he’s thrilled, he said he can’t quite believe it.

The man, who identified himself only as Roger, said he moved to Henderson from Palm Beach, Florida, a couple of months ago and frequents the Lake Mead Parkway casino almost daily.

On Saturday evening, the man, who said he was originally from Virginia, said he’d visited the casino during the afternoon and sat at the same slot machine he always plays. He said he won $20 at first and then played four more spins. On the fourth spin, he hit the winner, he said.

“I didn’t even know I’d won until the lady came over and told me I’d won it,” he said. “The machine lit up, and I knew I’d won something, but I just wasn’t sure what.”

 

“I think when that happens, I’ll probably pass out,” he said. “I’m very happy, yes.”

 

“We are thrilled that a guest of Fiesta Henderson won a $10,192,523.88 jackpot on IGT Megabucks Saturday,” Station Casinos spokeswoman Lori Nelson said Saturday. She declined to name the guest.

While officials from International Game Technology, which makes the wide-area slot progressive, couldn’t be reached for comment, Station Casinos, which owns Fiesta Henderson, confirmed that the jackpot hit Saturday afternoon.

“We are thrilled that a guest of Fiesta Henderson won a $10,192,523.88 jackpot on IGT Megabucks Saturday,” Station Casinos spokeswoman Lori Nelson said Saturday. She declined to name the guest.
