A man named Rodolfo T. is now celebrating after winning an $11.8 million slots jackpot in Las Vegas.

Rodolfo was playing slot machines at the Fremont Hotel and Casino in downtown Vegas when his big win occurred. And he earned the jackpot through the IGT Megabucks Double 3X4X5X Pay machine.

What’s impressive about the California native’s $11.8 million prize is that he won with a $3 bet. While not cheap by online slots standards, this is a small bet when compared to the potential prize.

Rodolfo wisely withheld his last name and didn’t offer any quotes for news outlets. But Jim Sullivan, Fremont’s general manager, did speak with the Daily Mail after the win.

‘The Fremont has awarded many thousands of jackpots throughout its 60-year history in Las Vegas, but none quite like this,” said Sullivan.

‘We’re incredibly excited to be a part of this amazing jackpot, furthering Fremont’s longstanding reputation as a place where players win.”

$11.8 Million Jackpot still not a Slots Record

While $11.8 million is certainly an impressive prize, it won’t break any records.

The largest win for a land-based slot machine is $39.7 million. This was won by a 25-year-old software engineer who got lucky at Excalibur Casino.

The biggest online slots jackpot belongs to a man named Jon Heywood, who collected a prize worth approximately $20 million.

Again, the $11.8 million amount doesn’t quite live up to either of these jackpots. However, Rodolfo T. definitely won a life-changing amount of money by playing slots.

He didn’t offer any details on what he plans to do with the money in the future. But we can be sure that he’ll purchase a nice car or two and an upgraded home.
