Vegas Recent Jackpot Winners
Aug. 23, 2014
A very lucky New Hampshire couple leaves the Strip tonight for their flight home as winners of a $2.4 million jackpot from the legendary “Lion’s Share” slot machine at MGM Grand.
One of the winners inserted $100 into the machine and was playing the $3 max bet for about five minutes when the three long-awaited green emblems lined up horizontally on the jackpot center pay line.
A bit of History and the legend of ‘Lion’s Share’ slot machine come to a close at MGM Grand.
After hitting a $2.4 million jackpot more than 20 years in the making, the “Lion’s Share” slot machine is getting a new home in a new climate and time zone. MGM Resort execs this week had the machine shipped to the Florida vacation home of jackpot winner Walter. The grandfather who hit the progressive jackpot asked if he could keep the machine once it was decommissioned.
