This week a 92-year-old man won a massive casino jackpot for the second time in his life. Elmer Sherwin from Ohio netted himself $21.1 million playing a Megabucks slot machine at the Cannery Hotel and Casino. In 1989 he won the $4.6 million jackpot playing a Megabucks machine at the Mirage Casino.
It must be noted that the chance of winning the Megabucks progressive jackpot is very low. They say it is less than one in ten million. So, it is really surprising how Sherwin has managed to do it twice. At the moment he is the only person who has won the top prize for a second time.
Sherwin resides in Las Vegas. He lives with his son and daughter-in-law. He still drives. During World War II he managed to escape death twice. He lived through the Great Depression that taught him not to be prone to big expenditures. Having won huge prizes, he is still very sensible what concerns spending money.
