Big winner stories

Here is yet another inspiring huge winner story and Elmer Sherwin’s hit on Megabucks Slots.

In 1989, a big $4.6 million hit took place at Cannery Casino & Hotel in Vegas. The machine of luck was Megabucks slot and the name of the lucky winner – Elmer Sherwin, who beat the odds not just once, but 2 times in fact. After his huge hit, Sherwin didn’t stop playing his favourite Megabucks slot and the luck embraced him once again in 2005, when at the age of 92 he stroke another $2.1 million.

Elmer shares that he had been a huge Megabucks slot fan for a really long time. He believed that playing the same slot over and over again would finally pay out at a given moment, resulting in a whole of 16 years of spinning until his 2nd big strike.

Interestingly Sherwin’s first big hit fell on Cannery Casino’s opening night, leaving speculations about how big payouts happen primarily on such events. However, history can tell that such huge strikes are nothing, but a matter of luck.

Other examples of big Megabucks winners include a flight attendant with the whopping $27.5 million hit in 1988, which proves the point. However, what is special about Elmer Sherwin is that he was the big winner not once, but 2 times.
