Sometimes gambling in Las Vegas pays off big. Sometimes it pays off crazy big by turning a few pennies into $65,000. As reported by www.reviewjournal.com, a Pennsylvania gambler hit the five-figure jackpot at the end of October. Jacqueline Skibber’s recent visit to the real money casino gambling capital of world turned out much better than expected. She was playing the Tarzan penny slot at The STRAT’s Link Slot Lounge on Oct. 27. On a $2 spin, she landed the machine’s top jackpot of $64,829.61.
This just so happened to be the same day that another player won $492,000 playing slots at Park MGM. Ms. Skibber probably wishes that she hit that jackpot instead, but her win is nothing to sneeze at. Seeing that it was a Tarzan machine, that should be something to yell at.
Las Vegas has been buzzing lately with some big jackpot hits. This should be considered a natural phenomenon in this gambling town. Yet, a big six or seven-figure win still makes the news. So does a $65K jackpot when it hits on a one cent machine.
Boyd Gaming owns several Las Vegas casinos downtown and the general area. Two separate properties recently paid out a pair of million-dollar slots jackpots in the span of one month.
The biggest casino companies in Las Vegas actually love when one of their machines pays off big. The free publicity alone is worth more than the average payout. Gamblers are creatures of habit that often times believe in fate. They believe it is their fate to hit it big. So why not enhance your chances by going to a casino that has paid out big in the past.
There is no real rhyme or reason to winning a big slot machine jackpot. These are the ultimate games of chance. You could make a strong case that big wins are being in the right place at the right time. Las Vegas has proven to be the right place time and time again. It is just a matter of finding the right machine at the right casino to score that next big win.
The two Boyd Gaming casinos were Main Street Station and Aliante Hotel & Casino. The $935,000 winner at the Aliante was a guest of the hotel trying to catch a movie. The $931,640 winner at Main Street Station is a loyal customer that frequently tries her luck at slots.
Most of the biggest wins were hit with very little cash out of pocket. One hit came on a $1.25 play and the biggest total investment was $20. The biggest jackpots all came on progressive slots. These are the most attractive slots for anyone looking for a huge win potential.
The machines are often tied to a network with accumulating jackpots across a wide number of progressive slots. Eventually, someone is going to cash in when they grow to a certain amount. The network of IGT’s Wheel of Fortune series of progressive slots has produced some of the biggest jackpots to date.
