A California man has won an $11.8m (£9m) jackpot after betting just $3 (£2) on a Las Vegas slot machine.
The man - who has only been identified as Rodolfo T - placed the bet while on holiday at the Fremont Hotel and Casino.
Rodolfo had been playing the IGT Megabucks machine when he struck lucky and won the money on Tuesday evening, according to the Las Vegas Review Journal.
He had placed the maximum bet of $3 on the machine.
The casino manager said despite seeing many wins over the years, this was one of a kind.
“The Fremont has awarded many thousands of jackpots throughout its 60-year history in Las Vegas, but none quite like this,” said Jim Sullivan.
Rodolfo’s win was not the biggest in history however. The record payout for the same type of machine was in 2003, when a winner took home $39.7 million from the Excalibur hotel casino in Las Vegas.
