$2.4 Million Lion's Share Jackpot Won at MGM Grand Las Vegas

A couple from New Hampshire took home a $2.4 million jackpot while playing the Lion's Share jackpot at the MGM Grand Casino in Las Vegas, the first jackpot win for the game in 20 years.

The game is a 3 reel classic slot that has a staggering jackpot that requires a $3 bet to qualify for the jackpot. The slot is the last of a series of slots that were placed in the casino in the 1990's and will be retired now that the jackpot has been won.

The win was taken home by Walter and Linda Misco, who posed with the machine after scoring the massive jackpot win.

Commenting on the win MGM Grand issued a statement, which read: "We've waited over 20 years for this! Our famous Lion's Share Finally Hit for $2.4 million."

Justin Andrews of the casino added, "This game probably gets played about five times more than our average game on the casino floor. Our staff gets asked every single day, multiple times, where this game is, from people who haven't played it before."
