One lucky slots player was celebrating a belated Christmas present this week after triggering the Megasaur jackpot for $1,051,455.

The huge jackpot win, equivalent to €872,160 or £676,324, was triggered on the popular RTG-developed slot and is the first jackpot that the slot has paid out to a player since it was released earlier this year.

Megasaur is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot that was released by RTG as the sequel to their iconic dinosaur-themed slot T-Rex. The slot has two Wilds in the shape of the green Megasaur and the red Megasaur. Players can also trigger up to 50 free spins on this slot. On top of the mega jackpot that was won this week, there are also the major and minor jackpots that players can trigger.

This latest jackpot win ranks fourth on the all-time list of RTG jackpot wins and is the largest jackpot win on an RTG slot in over two years. The biggest ever jackpot win on an RTG slot came back on 14th December, 2011 at Bodog Casino when a player won $1,244,529 on the Shopping Spree slot.

Further details about this Megasaur slot jackpot win have not yet been released by RTG with the winner and name of the casino where the jackpot was triggered currently not confirmed. This information is expected to be released in the coming days.
