Superstition Confounded at MGM Grand; Lucky Winner Strikes it Rich on Nevada Megabucks(R)

LAS VEGAS, Feb 13, 2004 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Friday the thirteenth was far from unlucky for an international visitor to the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. Early this morning, the 49-year old woman, who asked to remain anonymous, won $10.2 million on Nevada Megabucks(R).

She said she played $20 on the machine before the three Megabucks symbols clicked into place. And while she was surprised by the jackpot, it wasn't entirely unexpected. She said that two weeks ago, she dreamed that she won a lot of money and this morning, she had felt the winning machine was calling out to her.

This was the tenth year the woman and her husband had visited the MGM Grand and she said now they may come more often.

The last time Megabucks hit at the MGM Grand was in 2000 when another international visitor won $7.7 million.

Megabucks was the first slot game to be linked throughout the state giving rise to the multimillion dollar jackpots. It is one of 22 Nevada MegaJackpots(TM) systems operated by IGT (NYSE: IGT), a world leader in the manufacturing of gaming machines and proprietary software for progressive gaming systems. All IGT MegaJackpots top awards are paid in annual installments upon verification, except MegaJackpots Instant Winners Jackpots(TM) and Rapid Riches MegaJackpots(TM) awards, which are paid in their entirety upon verification.
