The largest amount anyone has ever won on the Megabucks (a progressive slot machine) is $56 million. The guy that won was in his early 30’s and from California. After he won he did what any sane person would do, he quit his job. But his company had a contract with him and the contract said that this guy had to be employed for a certain number of years. That company sued him for the exact amount that he won $56 million. This is one of the stories that make people think the Megabucks is cursed.
