MegaHits is a video lottery terminal (VLT) multiple-progressive jackpot game that began on July 15, 2011. MegaHits replaced Cashola, which was offered from July 2006 to May 15, 2011. Cashola was offered at lottery-run casinos in Delaware, Rhode Island, and West Virginia; the same three lotteries take part in MegaHits. In 2013, three of Ohio's casinos started offering MegaHits; the following year, four of Maryland's casinos started offering it. As of April 2016, fifteen lottery-run casinos offer MegaHits.[1]

MegaHits features five progressive jackpots, unlike Cashola, where only the top progressive rolled until it was won. Except for the jackpot that is won if a player making the maximum wager spins nine "MegaHits" symbols (which can be won from any MegaHits machine and therefore is fed by all its players regardless of amount wagered) the progressive jackpot pools for spinning five to eight "MegaHits" symbols are won within each MegaHits member. As an example, the game's four progressives within Delaware are fed only by MegaHits wagers in Delaware, while the top progressive (whose starting jackpot is $100,000) is fed by all MegaHits wagers in the five states.

Unlike Cashola, whose jackpot was annuitized with a cash option, all MegaHits progressives are paid in cash, including the linked progressive.

IGT supplies the VLTs that are used by MegaHits players.
