Elko, Nevada – A gold miner wins $12.5 million at Gold Dust West Casino

Efren Aguirre (64), wandered into the Gold Dust West Casino with his wife after a full day’s work on Tuesday. Sitting down in front of an IGT Megabucks dollar coin slot machine, Aguirre spun the reels a few times. On the seventh spin, at approximately 11:11 p.m, the slot machine reels lined up and rewarded Aguirre with a progressive jackpot of $12,515,708.83. Although Aguirre was initially not quite sure of what had happened, the casino staff informed him that he had just won the progressive jackpot. However, despite winning more than $12.5 million, Aguirre loves his job and will continue to work, while putting most of the money won away for the future.

The Gold Dust West Casino is located at 1660 Mountain City Highway. Elko, Nevada 89801
