What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than playing slot machines, and it was at around 4:30pm on Sunday last that one lucky slot player had one of those life changing jackpot hits that most slot players can only dream about.
It was over at the South Point Casino that jackpot was won, and IGT have just confirmed the winning pay-out was a whopping $464,287.
As for just which slot machine fired out that massive jackpot, well it was the ever-popular Wheel of Fortune slot that was playing loose and hot that afternoon.
However, there are several different variants of that slot available all over Vegas, which offer both a different set of staking options and jackpots too, but it was on the 25 cent Wheel of Fortunes slot that jackpot was won on, which requires players to play all five pay-lines for a max bet stake of some $1.25 to have any chance of winning that jackpot.
The lucky winning player has chosen to remain anonymous, and as such that player has not been identified, but with the jackpot now being confirmed as being valid that player can now set forth and try and work out what to do with their winnings.
The South Point Casino is a popular casino with locals, for with some high RTP’s on their slot machines and the generous players club, slot players do get plenty of value from their slot playing activates.
With over 2,390 slot and video poker machines dotted around its huge gaming floor, gamblers are always going to find the exact slots to play, however many slot players are now going to be giving that Wheel of Fortune slot a wide berth until its jackpot begins to get much higher than the seed value it has just been reset to.
