Las Vegas is heating up this week with the start of March Madness and the annual NCAA Tournament. This is one of the biggest betting events of year. And it goes hand-in-hand with everything Las Vegas has to offer.
Some players such as Jamie from California have already made a big killing in town. Earlier this month, he walked away with a progressive slots jackpot worth $892,574. In town to help celebrate a friend’s birthday, he won the top prize at Cosmopolitan Las Vegas casino.
The casino tweeted out news of the big win on March 12. That actual tweet read:
“What a way to start a Friday. Congrats to Jamie from California who while celebrating a friend’s birthday won $892,574 by hitting the top prize while playing “Vacation.”
Jamie may have been the biggest winner in recent days. Yet, big money jackpots have been popping up all over town this month.
