Biggest Slot Wins of All Time [7. Elmer Sherwin – $21 Million – Cannery Casino & Hotel, Las Vegas]

Elmer Sherwin was a World War II vet with exceptional luck. In 1989, the Mirage opened in Las Vegas, and just a few days after it opened its doors, Sherwin walked away with a $4.6 million jackpot from, you guessed it, a Megabucks slot. His bankroll had run out, so he borrowed $20 from his then-wife. It only took 90 minutes for him to win and claim the title of the largest slot jackpot won at The Mirage.


In fact, 16 years later, Sherwin visited the Cannery Casino & Hotel and played the same Megabucks game that brought him so much success years before. At the age of 92, Sherwin made his dream of winning the Megabucks jackpot for a second time a reality. He bet the maximum $3 bet and walked away with over $21 million. Experts say that the odds of hitting the jackpot twice was “billions, if not trillions, to one.”
