Las Vegas has been the home of several massive jackpots since casinos opened their doors once more.
But one lucky punter that flew in from Hawaii took winning jackpots to a whole other level last week.
After winning a massive $789,062 on Buffalo Inferno slot, she then won another $5k jackpot on a nearby game.
Share the Luck Around a Bit, Please
We’ve all had our own fair share of luck over the years, but this takes the biscuit.
While the lucky player was waiting for her money from the Fremont Casino, she decided to have a few spins on a slot nearby.
It was then when the alarm bells began ringing and the big winner sign displayed again, this time with a $5k jackpot.
She won a whopping $794,062 in the space of half an hour, while we’re over here trying to win just a fraction of that… talk about fair
Vegas Dishing Out the Jackpots
Las Vegas has been the home of big winners ever since it reopened following the COVID shutdown, and it’s showing no signs of slowing down.
Just 24 hours after Caesars opened its doors, a player won $670k on Let it Ride Poker – what a welcome back.
A couple of weeks later, a player won a massive $3,934,609 on Fu Dao Le at the Bellagio
Finally, over the Labor Day weekend, a teacher from Florida won $563,915 on Mississippi Stud Poker.
These massive jackpots are taking casinos on the strip for a massive chunk of change, which is a bit of a concern for casino bosses.
Since reopening, Las Vegas has been a shadow of its former self, with just over 1 million visitors during the month of July.
If these numbers remain so low, we could see layoffs starting to occur and casinos starting to feel the pinch – especially if players keep winnng huge jackpots!
Who’s Up Next?
If the jackpots continue to make grand appearances, then more and more players could be tempted to make the trip to Sin City.
It’s definitely a marketing strategy that works, and we could see players start flocking to Vegas in the hope of bagging a jackpot.
At the moment it’s averaging around one major jackpot being triggered on the strip every couple of weeks, and that’s with low player numbers.
If more players flock to the strip, we could see these massive jackpots going off around the clock – ahh, that’s the Vegas we know and love.
Although, the Culinary Union won’t be too impressed if this is the case. Already more than 350 members have reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 since casinos opened their doors.
If this trend continues we could see casinos and restaurants unable to cope with the high demand as the workforce would be out on quarantine.
This could result in casinos forcing employees to come back before they’re given the all clear, something that’s allegedly already happening.
It’s this fear that is keeping players away from Vegas, and until the casinos do something to address these concerns, it looks like online casinos and Bitcoin casinos will continue to see a surge in player numbers.
