Megabucks slot spills out $12.5 million jackpot

A gambling venue in Elko (Nevada) has celebrated a multimillion dollar jackpot winner. Meet Efren Aguirre, a local gambling enthusiast who landed a $12.5 million cash prize whilst spinning the reels of a Megabuck slot. Despite his newfound wealth, the 64-year-old gold miner isn’t planning to quit his job.

$12.5 million rather than $1,200

Aguirre first thought that the slot jackpot was the result of an error and he asked a staff member why the reels had stopped spinning. The staff member told the gambler that he had won $1,200, but another employee confirmed that it was actually $12.5 million.

Rainy day funds

Aguirre’s spouse Maria was spinning the reels of another slot when he struck oil. She thought that her husband couldn’t handle the life-changing win, but Efren managed to control his feelings. Maria then informed their son about the multimillion slot bonanza, but he didn’t believe it at first. She added that they don’t have any extravagant plans for their winnings, except to put the money in the bank and invest wisely.
