A Reno woman has hit a $33 million Megabucks jackpot, IGT’s second largest slot jackpot, while playing at Terrible’s Rail City Casino in Sparks.
Rachael Renee Romanick, a 38 year-old Reno resident and mother of four, won the jackpot at Terrible’s Rail City Casino on Sunday. "I really owe it to my friend," said Romanick. "I wanted to stay home, but he wanted to gamble at Rail City and convinced me to join him. I said to myself, ‘Why not? If you’re gonna win big, you have to play big and take a chance.’"
"We are very pleased to have a local winner for the second largest jackpot in IGT history," said Ed Rogich, IGT vice president of marketing. "This is truly monumental and will be a life-altering prize for Rachael and her family."
Romanick had only been playing for about 10-minutes when she hit the lucky jackpot and initially had no idea what she had won. "I had to ask someone if this was for real," she said. "I kind of froze because this was so unexpected."
