Player Hits $1.8 Million Jackpot at the Venetian

This story was published more than 5 years ago.

Over the weekend a punter spinning the reels on a Wheel of Fortune video slot at the Venetian in Las Vegas hit it big, taking home a $1.8 million Jackpot.

The player ended up picking up the win on a $1 machine with a $5 bet. The win took place late into the night, coming at about 3 in the morning. Needless to say, a sleepless night likely became longer, as we can't imagine that they slept too well after that.

After everything was totaled up, the lucky player walked away with $1,883,896.27.

The Venetian is one of the nicer casino resorts on the Las Vegas Strip. It opened in 1999 and features a Venice, Italy theme, including canals where you can ride Gondolas.

Wow, what a hit, could be even more exiting when you make such score being in a land based casino I guess...the slot machine could not spit $1.9mill in coins..right?!? 🤔

Wow, what a lucky winner !!! Great.

But, frankly, even though the amount is huge enough to be a life changer for most of us, it surprises me less, probably, there have been much bigger Jackpot hits online there days 😀

Now that is what I call an epic win and I agree with the writer on the lucky player not sleeping after such an event I know I wouldn't sleep for day after winning that kind of money 😕
