Business is slowly returning to normal in the casino gambling capital of the world. Las Vegas is back and a few of the wins are as big as ever. This remains one of the few places in the world where a vacation can turn into a life changing moment. We discussed this news story in our latest podcast.
For an Arizona resident, her recent trip to Las Vegas turned out to be a profitable one. Sherry W. of Bullhead City is $168,854 richer these days. She hit the big slot jackpot on a $1 Big Monte Spin & Win. The winning slot machine was at Treasure Island.
How Are Las Vegas Visitors Continuing To Hit It Big
The casino released the following tweet after the big win on Sept. 10: “We interrupt our usual Winner Wednesday announcement for this GIANT JACKPOT! Sherry W. hit $168,854 this morning and we couldn’t be more excited for her! Congrats Sherry!!!”
She was pictured in the post standing next to the winning machine displaying the three winning symbols. You could almost see the big smile behind her mask holding the oversized check.
The coronavirus pandemic has negatively impacted people all across the world. Las Vegas was shutdown for more than three months. The reopening in early June has had its share of hurdles to clear over the past three months. Yet, Las Vegas still inspires millions with the fun and excitement it offers. It is great to see big jackpots for everyday people.
