The Megabucks ® player, who wished to remain anonymous, won while visiting the casino on Friday night. The new multimillionaire was shocked and said, "I almost fainted!"

"This $3-million Megabucks jackpot is the largest jackpot ever to hit at Pala Casino Spa and Resort," said Bill Bembenek, Pala Casino Spa and Resort's chief executive officer. "It is exciting to offer our Pala players so many ways to win from our fantastic casino games to our $2 Million Cash and Cars Giveaway promotion every Friday during February."

IGT's California Megabucks® can be played on more than 60 slot machines at 37 casinos throughout the state. Popular Megabucks® titles include Double 3x4x5x® Pay, Megabucks Wild Sapphires® and Double Diamond Deluxe®.

"What a fantastic night for the lucky Megabucks® winner as IGT delivers again on its Dream Big Win Big promise this weekend at Pala Casino Spa and Resort," said Susan Cartwright, IGT vice president of Corporate Communications. "IGT Megabucks® has paid out more than $5.6 billion in jackpots and transformed the lives of so many players by making them instant millionaires. Congratulations to this lucky winner on their life-changing win!"

IGT launched Megabucks ® and the MegaJackpots ® progressive product line in 1986, and has since produced dozens of major winners with jackpots ranging from just over $1 million (when one million dollars was the system's base jackpot) to the world record slot jackpot of more than $39 million, won in March 2003 at the Excalibur Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
