Big money jackpots on progressive slot machines in Las Vegas are rather common. This is especially true when it comes to IGT’s Wheel of Fortune slot machines, which have yielded some of the biggest progressive slot machine jackpots in the real money gambling capital of the world.
When it comes to big money jackpots at a casino in Detroit, a local patron who has been a longtime player at Greektown Casino-Hotel has finally seen his ongoing efforts payoff with a high six-figure hit. According to a recent post by Brandon Champion on the Michigan Live website www.mlive.com, the unidentified slots player won an $875,527 jackpot on a $20 bet that was placed on the Wheel of Fortune Double Diamond machine. The jackpot was won on Aug. 15 and the first reaction by the 50-year old man was shocked to the point where he could not move according to a news release.
