New multi-state progressive Jackpot hits after less than one month at Scioto Downs

Columbus, OH – October 29, 2013 – A lucky winner at Scioto Downs had 126,000 reasons to celebrate when she became the first person to hit the large progressive jackpot on IGT’s MegaHits machine on October 27.

The player, who wishes to remain anonymous, is an INClub™ Gold card member. She placed the $3 maximum bet on the $1 Pink Ice MegaHits game on Sunday just after 10:00pm. Her total jackpot winnings amounted to $126,145.71.

“That is a spectacular amount of money to win. I hope it brings her a lot of happiness and joy,” said Scioto Downs Racino General Manager Troy Buswell. “We wish her well and hope she keeps coming back to visit us here at Scioto Downs.”

Scioto Downs was the first Racino to install MegaHits games in Ohio. The installation took place a little less than a month ago on October 4. The most recent jackpot win totaling $225,000 was at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino in Dover, Delaware just 14 days prior.

IGT’s MegaHits are wide-area progressive (WAP) jackpot games that are linked across multiple lottery jurisdictions in Delaware, West Virginia, Rhode Island and Ohio. Once a WAP jackpot is hit, the games reset at $100,000. Most jackpots to hit on these games are considered life-changing.
