LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Playing a $100 slot machine (yes, you read that correctly), one lucky high roller hit a $441,966 jackpot at the Golden Nugget casino in downtown Las Vegas.

The custom slot machine was commissioned by the hotel in 1998 with a max bet of $200 needed to hit the progressive jackpot that starts at $100,000.

A big bet with a big reward... if you hit it.
