California Woman Wins World Record Penny MegaJackpots(R) Prize at AVI Resort and Casino

LAUGHLIN, Nev., Aug. 12 /PRNewswire/ — Shigeko Ide Stein visits The Twilight Zone(R) Video Slots at AVI Resort and Casino in Laughlin, Nevada three times a week. Her persistence in playing pennies paid off in a big way Wednesday evening when she became the latest MegaJackpots(R) millionaire, winning a jackpot of $2,995,071 which surpasses the previous world record of $2,065,685 hit earlier this year.

Stein, a 61-year-old business manager from Needles, California, says she took “the only open seat at the four Twilight Zone(R) games.”

The big win did not surprise Stein as she had a premonition earlier this week that she was going to win on a MegaJackpots(R) game at the AVI Resort and Casino.

Stein said she knew instantly that her maximum coin bet had won, but did not realize how much until she saw the other MegaJackpots(R) meters reset to $200,000. “I just had a good feeling after seeing a woman had a winning combination but didn’t have a max coin bet,” she added.

As part of the Instant Winners Jackpot(R) series, Stein received her winnings in their entirety upon verification of the MegaJackpots(R) award.

The lucky winner says she will keep her job, pay off her debt and look after her friend with her winnings.

The TV Hits(R) system from IGT links The Twilight Zone(TM), M*A*S*H(TM), The Beverly Hillbillies(TM) and I Dream of Jeannie(TM) video slots throughout Nevada casinos.
