Las Vegas is filled with big winners during any given week. However, the number of players leaving town with less money than they came with remains much higher. Every once awhile, Lady Luck takes things to the extreme with a life-changing win.
Earlier this month, a source close to PlaySlots4RealMoney.com discovered the latest Las Vegas millionaire. The big winner chose to remain anonymous after the $1.2 million jackpot. Playing the Wheel of Fortune Wild Red Sevens progressive slot, five dollars turned into a $1,264,574 jackpot. The winning player was at the Venetian Las Vegas on the famed Las Vegas Strip.
IGT (International Gaming Technology) is the manufacturer of the highly popular Wheel of Fortune progressive series of slots. The company was quick to release the following tweet when it learned of the win.
Congratulations To The Venetian Wheel of Fortune Slot Who Wins A Seven-Digit Jackpot
IGT Jackpots @IGTJackpots: “Another big win! Congratulations to the lucky Wheel of Fortune slots player who won a massive $1,264,574 jackpot at @VenetianVegas in Las Vegas, Nevada. #IGTJackpots.”
Since the beginning of the year in the Las Vegas area, there have been three major Wheel of Fortune jackpots. The previous big hit was $1.7 million at Wynn Las Vegas on a $10 bet. Topping them all is January’s $5.4 million jackpot. That slot player won big at the Excalibur. Going back to last November, one lucky slots player took home $2.2 million on a Wheel Of Fortune slot at the Mirage.
While the life-changing million-dollar plus jackpots make all the headlines, smaller wins are also in the news. A video keno player at Fiesta Rancho pocketed $14,000 on two winning seven-number cards.
Playing a Hot Stuff slot machine at Golden Nugget, a player hit $10,000 on a $3.20 wager.
One Las Vegas visitor from South Carolina is $10,000 richer. They won a 50-Hand video poker jackpot with a royal flush of clubs. They were gambling at Four Queens Casino. Playing at the Fremont downtown, a Double Diamonds player won $8,000. One lucky employee at Binion won $4000 on a $1 video poker machine just ahead of their shift.
When it comes to trying your luck at the Venetian Resort & Casino, there are plenty of ways to win.
One of the most famous and popular stops on the Las Vegas Strip offers over 1,000 slot games. The overall selection runs the gambit of every conceivable type of game. The Wheel of Fortune machines still offer the biggest win potential.
High rollers looking to play slots can visit Venetian’s high-limit slots salon. Here, you can bet as much as $5000 on a single slot spin. This casino is also connected with The Palazzo. Together they offer the most extensive selection of slots and video poker machines in the Las Vegas area.
There are two main casino floors to choose from. Regular players can earn rewards as part of the Grazie customer loyalty program. Touted as one of the best on the Strip, generous rewards are tied to all of your casino play. The two properties combined offer close to 2000 slot machines.
