Today is Elvis Presley's birthday, and many celebrations are scheduled in and around Memphis. Iris South, of Memphis, celebrated last night when she won $1,618,783.07 on an Elvis(R) video slot machine at the Horseshoe Casino in Tunica, MS. South said she'd played $22 in the machine when it hit.
The Elvis(R) MegaJackpot(TM) can be won for a three-coin (75-cent) wager. The 3-reel machine offers an irresistible blend of traditional slot jackpots with multi-media enhanced bonuses. The game is filled with Elvis trivia and a variety of Elvis images that can only be seen on this IGT machine. After the Elvis(R) MegaJackpot(TM) was verified, the meter was reset at $100,000.
