Share Article

What would you do with 3 million dollars? It’s a fun hypothetical question for most, but for one Inland Empire resident it has become an astonishing reality.

Jackpot for 3.2 Million hit at Soboba Casino on Labor Day 2017

The Riverside County local hit an IGT Wide Area Progressive jackpot Megabucks® machine on Labor Day September 4th, 2017, a night never to be forgotten. The local, choosing to remain anonymous, became an instant multi-millionaire after winning the progressive jackpot for $3,222,044 at Soboba Casino in San Jacinto, California. The local was ecstatic with the win.

The lucky three dollar bet quickly distinguished the winner as the recipient of one of the largest jackpots awarded in the history of not only the Inland Empire, but Southern California as a whole. The jackpot hit on the IGT Megabucks Double Diamond Deluxe game – one of IGT’s most popular slot themes.

According to Gene Stachowski, Director of Marketing at Soboba Casino “This is the biggest Jackpot win in Soboba Casino history, and I am thrilled to be here to witness the monumental occasion.”

Last year Soboba Casino was voted “Luckiest Casino” in the Southern California Gaming Guide’s Reader’s Choice Awards, and it appears they are living up to that name. With more than $143.2 million dollars in jackpots won over the past five years, it is clear that Soboba Casino is the best choice for players looking to come out on top.

“This is truly a seminal moment, and we are honored to share it with our lucky guest,” said Scott Sirois, General Manager of Soboba Casino. “This is a life changing win for everyone involved and the pure excitement on the gaming floor is palpable.”

Gaming giant IGT representatives came to Soboba Casino shortly after the jackpot was announced to verify the win.

“IGT is excited to see our Megabucks game continue its millionaire-making momentum at Soboba Casino,” said Toni Martinez, IGT Vice President Sales, Western Region. “Mega-sized jackpots such as the one recently awarded at Soboba Casino inject palpable excitement into any casino floor.”
