Sydney, November 28, 2016 - IGT and Maxgaming announce that the IGT Megabucks Gold statewide link jackpot has hit again at Sawtell RSL Club - that's three Mega jackpots in just two weeks. The lucky winner hit the jackpot of $261,509.71 early on Sunday evening, 27 November 2016.
This latest win hit just a week after a record breaking week where two Mega jackpots hit in one week - $255,160.16 jackpot at Tamworth Servies Club on November 18th and $343,893k jackpot at Rooty Hill RSL on November 14th!
The new Megabucks Gold statewide link jackpot hit the market just weeks ago and is now one of the best performing games1 according to Maxgaming's performance reports.
In the latest report (06/10/16 - 05/11/16), Megabucks Gold was performing at 1.79 xthe denomination average across multiple venues at over $4,360 average daily turnover1.
Importantly it's delivering twice the performance of the previous Megabucks product1, demonstrating the new product's strong player appeal with multi-games and multi-denominations.
IGT unveiled the new Megabucks link - Megabucks Gold - at this year's Australasian Gaming Expo with the new product offering four games with multiple denominations from 1c to $1.
The total amount that has been won on the Megabucks link is now over $12 million in first-level and second-level statewide linked jackpot prizes. It's worth noting that over $7m has been won in the $1,000+ Grandbucks jackpots which is the second level statewide linked jackpot, which generates excitement in venues while the huge Megabucks main jackpot builds.
Originally launched with Maxgaming in October 2014, IGT's Megabucks Gold statewide link has the industry's largest jackpot amount - which starts off at $250k - with an expected jackpot prize average of approximately $292k. There are now over 100 clubs and 350 machines on the state-wide link across NSW, and the jackpot has been rapidly incrementing, reflecting the huge success of the Megabucks concept.
