Las Vegas threw open its doors after three months of closure due to COVID-19, and players have been reaping the rewards ever since.
Within 24 hours of Caesars Palace being open, one player took the joint for $670k on Let it Ride Poker.
Now another player just hit a massive $3,934,609 on Fu Dao Le at the Bellagio thanks to triggering a network jackpot!
Jackpots are a Punters Best Friend
Las Vegas is packed full of slots, but it’s the jackpot slots like Fu Dao Le and Let it Ride Poker that are going to change your life with the wins they offer.
Late on Saturday night, this lucky player set off all the drum rolls, alarms and big win sounds, much to their excitement.
The lucky player chose to remain anonymous, but Melissa Price, senior VP of Global Gaming Operations at Scientific Games said: “We are thrilled by this huge jackpot awarded on one of our most successful wide-area progressive slot games ever released. Congratulations to the player and Bellagio on this momentous win!
Played correctly and at the right time, these jackpot slots can actually prove to be incredibly lucrative for players. As long as the jackpot is over a certain threshold, there’s virtually no way you can lose money if you trigger the jackpot.
Slot players from all over the world use this popular strategy in teams so that they can clean out the jackpots and bring the house down.
Back in July, two other visitors also won huge jackpots, with one of the jackpots worth a little more than $2 million.
It very much appears as if the jackpots are on fire following the COVID-19 break – how about that!
Still Problems for Vegas Employers
Unfortunately, the allure of jackpots and a good time is not quite enough for Vegas casinos, with player numbers still relatively low.
The strip is a mere husk of what it used to be like, but there is still a good deal of action going on.
The El Cortez has been caught out with its coin slots following a shortage of coins flowing through the US in the wake of COVID-19.
It’s not clear when the El Cortez will be back up to full capacity with its coin slots, but punters that love these old-timey slots sure hope it’s soon.
Elsewhere in Sin City, the Culinary Union has warned that more than 350 members and their families have tested positive for COVID-19 as health measures aren’t being followed correctly.
Allegedly, restaurants haven’t been disinfecting properly after a confirmed case, putting the health and safety of workers and guests alike at risk.
Vegas needs to step up its game as if another state-wide lockdown is imposed, a lot of casinos could be forced to cut staff count considerably or look to find buyers as they cannot keep up being closed.
Congratulations to the mega jackpot winner. Hopefully you managed to cash out quickly and without hassle. Enjoy your winnings!
