Well- someone had a rip roaring Easter. An American woman from Nevada scooped a $33 million jackpot at a casino in Nevada over the Easter weekend. She was playing the Megabucks slot- this was the 2nd biggest Megabucks jackpot ever at a Nevada casino.

The slot is managed by International Game Technology. 38-year-old Rachael Renee Romanick hit the mega-jackpot on Easter Sunday night at Terrible’s Rail City in Sparks.

Rachael had been playing the slot machine for about 10 minutes when she hit the top prize.
