LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A $1.1 million payoff on a Wheel of Fortune slot machine hit Friday, Jan. 21, at the Fremont Hotel and Casino in downtown Las Vegas.
The winner, a lucky guest from Hawaii, asked to remain anonymous after winning $1,100,986.
The jackpot hit on a $5 bet on the Wheel of Fortune Super Times Pay 2x 3x 4x 5x after the guest had only been playing the machine for about 10 minutes, according to a Boyd Gaming news release. The winner was staying at another Boyd property downtown — the California Hotel and Casino.
The company noted that another gambler from Hawaii hit a million-dollar jackpot on a $2 bet on Nov. 17 at Main Street Station. That payoff was on a Wheel of Fortune Double Diamond machine.
