Celebrating 6- and 7-figure slot jackpot wins for 2 Las Vegas locals.
Have you ever considered moving to the Las Vegas area? If so, chances are you have a good reason, and it’s probably not because you love the endless expanse of earthy scenery, or the arid disposition of dry heat. No, most people move to Las Vegas because they like to gamble – a lot. From blackjack card counters, to professional poker players, to retired slot machine enthusiasts, there’s no place like Sin City to get your gambling groove on.
Last week, two very fortunate Las Vegas locals saw their dreams of affluent wealth come true. Both were playing the slot machines at a Vegas area casino. Both cashed out at the cashier cage for life-changing amounts of money. The biggest difference was the number of digits in their respective prizes; one being 6 figures (enough to pay off a respectable mortgage), and the other 7 figures (enough to buy a small condo in Beverly Hills).
Big Slot Jackpot Wins One Vegas Local $128k
The first big payout occurred on Thursday, September 9, 2021 at the Mohegan Sun Casino at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. Located on the corner of Harmon Avenue and Paradise Road, just two blocks east of the Vegas Strip’s Planet Hollywood, the Mohegan Sun Casino is the newly renovated site of the former Hard Rock Hotel & Casino that closed its doors for the last time in February 2020.
The lucky strike sent this player home with a big stack of cash when the Lock It Link Piggy Bankin’ Slot paid out to the tune of $128,700. As happy as that player surely was, their celebration couldn’t possibly top that of our next big winner…
Popular Buffalo Grand Pays $1 Million Jackpot at Cannery
The Cannery Casino is a locals joint situated on East Craig Road in North Las Vegas; a far cry from the hustle and bustle of The Las Vegas Strip, but still a great place for gaming, wining, dining and all your other generic entertainment needs. It’s also a great place to play Aristocrat Leisure’s immensely popular Buffalo Grand Slot, progressive jackpot game known to pay out enormous, life-altering prizes.
No doubt, that’s what this very lucky player will tell you after scooping the game’s 7-figure jackpot for more than one million in cold, hard cash.
According to a social media publication by Cannery Casino entitled ‘Big Jackpot Alert’, the winner was playing the Buffalo Grand Slot in the wee hours of the morning on September 10. At precisely 2:19 a.m., on a bet of $3.75, the game’s screen lit up and the bells chimed, signifying the colossal win.
The lucky player, who has chosen to remain anonymous, did not pose next to the oversized cardboard check, boasting a total prize of $1,024,065.45. Instead, it simply reads, “Pay to the Order of: Lucky Local”. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Maybe you’re hiding that newfound wealth from friends and family. Or, perhaps you would prefer no one know where you spend such early morning hours. Whatever the reason, we congratulate you!
