LAS VEGAS, April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A lucky slot player at Downstream Casino Resort in Quapaw, Okla., was feeling all-but-blue, when IGT's (NYSE: IGT) player-favorite MegaJackpots® game James Cameron's Avatar™ Video Slots paid out a colossal  $2,645,459.90 jackpot on April 12, 2014.

The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, was visiting the casino with a friend when his video slot journey to Pandora turned into a life-changing jackpot experience. Drawn to James Cameron's Avatar™ Video Slots for its entertaining game play and unique slot experience, the winner was in shock when he hit the $2.6 million jackpot. After moments of disbelief and wondering if he had won 2.6 million pennies or $2.6 million, the winner was overjoyed to learn he had just won an enormous jackpot. Although he has no immediate plans for his winnings, he looks forward to living his life with less financial stress and pressures in the future.

The recent win on James Cameron's Avatar Video Slots continues IGT's millionaire-making legacy.  IGT launched the MegaJackpots progressive product line in 1986 and has since produced thousands of winners with jackpots ranging from $1 million to the world-record slot jackpot of more than $39 million.
