A Dallas area resident hit a $3.2 million jackpot on a $3 slot machine Friday night at Choctaw Casino & Resort, the largest jackpot ever won at the resort.

The man, who asked to remain anonymous, was visiting the resort for the first time this weekend with his family when he hit the record jackpot on the MEGABUCKS Double Diamond slot machine.

A resort spokesperson said the slot machine is considered a "wide area progressive" machine, meaning its continually mounting jackpot is not only drawn from players at Choctaw Casino & Resort, but from other casinos across the country.

General manager Jeff Penz says Friday night's jackpot was the culmination of a week of big winners.

"This has been a phenomenal week with so many large jackpot winners. We had the largest table games progressive jackpot ever at the property when an Austin resident won $750,000, a $243,000 slot machine jackpot and last night a $3 million-dollar winner," Penz said Saturday.

"While jackpots over $1 million is very common at Choctaw, this $3.2 million-dollar jackpot is our largest to date," he added.
