LAS VEGAS, Dec. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A Las Vegas resident has plenty to be grateful for this holiday season after he won a huge $14,282,544 jackpot on global gaming entertainment leader IGT's (NYSE: IGT) Megabucks® video slot at Rampart Casino in Las Vegas on Sunday, Nov. 30, 2014. The player wished to remain anonymous.

The winner was dining at the casino with his wife when he tried his luck on Megabucks and was in disbelief when the winning symbols appeared on his machine. He plans to contribute a portion of his winnings to various charities and a local church.

This jackpot continues IGT Megabucks' mega-payout history, now totaling more than $1 billion since its inception in 1987. The world record slot jackpot was won on IGT Megabucks and paid out $39 million in March 2003 at the Excalibur Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
