Elmer Sherwin, $21.1 million
Elmer Sherwin 92 years old won $21.1 million Megabucks jackpot in Las Vegas’ Cannery Casino. This jackpot was not his first big win and you won’t be surprised by the fact his nickname is Mr. Lucky.

The first jackpot won by Elmer Sherwin was for travelling, while the current one will be partially used as donations for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Kerry Packer, $20-40 million
A billionaire from Australia, Kerry Packer won somewhere between $20 and $40 million in his trip to Vegas in 1997. According to rumors he was playing blackjack and baccarat. Unfortunately, he did not manage to stay a steady winner and lost $28 million in a London casino two years later.
Anonymous, $39 million
One of the biggest wins at Las Vegas was a jackpot of $39 million at Excalibur casino. The winner wished to remain anonymous, though it is known he is 25 years old and came from Los Angeles. The biggest fun about this win is the fact the player wanted to pass the time waiting for a basketball game. A wise decision of this player was not to take all the money right away, but to split the win and to get a year payout of $1.5 million for the next 25 years.
