The popular MegaBucks progressive slot has done it again. A 54-year-old punter has bagged $1.7 million in cash thanks to the popular progressive slot at the Casino Rama in Ontario. Roger Berube has become an instant millionaire and he was completely shocked after winning the staggering jackpot.
Berube has been hunting for the progressive jackpot for years and it became almost an obsession. The lucky punter informed his spouse about the amazing jackpot he had won.
