On December 14, 2015, Greektown Casino Hotel (“Greektown”) announced that a patron had won a progressive jackpot of more than $2 Million. The jackpot is the largest progressive jackpot awarded in Detroit casino history.

The patron, who has asked to remain anonymous, won the progressive jackpot while playing an IGT Wheel of Fortune machine on Sunday, December 13. The previous record for highest jackpot in Detroit occurred in 2004, when a patron won a $1.77 Million jackpot on a similar machine.

The Michigan Gaming Control Board regulations allows for progressive slot machines that are linked between the Detroit casinos. Each machine contributes to a centralized jackpot, allowing patrons to play for prizes that are much larger than traditional, site-specific machines.
