LAS VEGAS, Dec. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A lucky Las Vegas local has hit the jackpot of a lifetime at the Rampart Casino in the JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa.
Within five minutes of stepping foot in the casino, the local man, who has asked that his name not be released, put $20 in a Megabucks slot machine and hit the progressive jackpot of $14 million. The winner claims he's not much of a gambler but decided to play Megabucks at the casino near Summerlin with his best friend, who was in town visiting.
The lucky man plans on sharing his success with causes close to his heart. In addition to contributing money to charity, the man will be donating funds to his church for the building of a new sanctuary. The congregation has been using a high school gymnasium to worship and now will be able to begin construction on a new church.
Joining in on the excitement of his win was Michael Gaughan Jr., general manager of Rampart Casino, who was on hand to congratulate the lucky winner.
