Lynnwood man wins largest slot machine jackpot in state history

A Lynnwood man won a $2.4 million jackpot this weekend, the largest slot machine win at any casino in state history.

Jose Lopez, of Lynnwood, won $2,369,748.95 shortly after midnight on March 20 at the Tulalip Resort Casino.

The $2.4 million jackpot shattered the previous jackpot record of $1,101,976.12.

Lopez, a self-employed painter, was urged by his girlfriend to play the Golden Charms progressive slot machine.

Neither believed they would take home the big jackpot.

Lopez frequents the casino and had previously won $20,000, but on a different machine.
