LAS VEGAS, June 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A lucky player tapped a fountain of wealth after hitting a $1,094,560.56 jackpot on global gaming entertainment giant, IGT's (NYSE: IGT), legendary slot machine Wheel of Fortune. The fortunate slot enthusiast was playing the fan-favorite MegaJackpots® game at Bellagio in Las Vegas on June 7, 2014 when she placed the winning wager.

International Game Technology is a global leader in casino gaming entertainment and continues to transform the industry by translating casino player experiences to social, mobile and interactive environments for markets around the world. IGT's acquisition of DoubleDown Interactive provides engaging social casino style entertainment to more than 6 million players monthly. More information about IGT is available at IGT.com.

The winner, a Florida resident, was visiting Las Vegas with family when she was struck with luck. The long-time fan of the Wheel of Fortune game family cited that the entire experience was "unbelievable," and prompted her to extend her stay in Las Vegas a few more days to celebrate.  The lucky winner plans to invest the jackpot winnings.

IGT launched the MegaJackpots progressive product line in 1986 and has since paid out more than 1,500 million-plus jackpots, totaling nearly $6 billion. For more information on IGT's MegaJackpots please visit IGT on Facebook at facebook.com/IGT, or follow us on Twitter, twitter.com/IGTnews.
