There are large slot machine jackpot wins nearly every day in Las Vegas. Big wins are always great to see but a recent million-dollar jackpot is part of a larger bi-coastal story.
A slot machine player from Florida recently won more than $1.6 million progressive jackpot on the Aristocrat Gaming Dragon Link slot machine at Wynn Las Vegas. The player scored the big win on Aug. 4 around 11 am.
Some slot machine wins are rags to riches tales. This isn’t one of those fables.
This player made a $750 wager on a Panda Magic slot machine in the high-limit slot room at Wynn. The large wager paid off with a massive Grand Jackpot win of $1,614,758.09.
This isn’t the first huge Dragon Link progressive jackpot in the high-limit room at Wynn this year. In March, a Las Vegas local accidentally hit Max Bet and placed a $2,500 wager on a Dragon Link slot machine. They took home a jackpot of more than $1.1 million.
Las Vegas casinos aren’t the only location to see multiple million-dollar Dragon Link jackpots.
Dragon Link jackpots in Florida
The irony about the recent jackpot at Wynn is that the winner is from Florida. It appears as though Dragon Link slot machines are paying out frequently at casinos in the Sunshine State.
Over the past year and a half, there have been million-dollar Dragon Link jackpots in three different casinos operated by the Seminole Tribe of Florida.
The most recent million-dollar Dragon Link jackpot win in Florida was at Seminole Coconut Creek Casino. On July 21, a player won a Dragon Link progressive jackpot of $1,029,005.
Six days before this win, a different slot machine player won a Dragon Link jackpot at the same casino. This player was wagering $250 per spin and took home a $1,493,111 jackpot.
Altogether, Seminole Coconut Creek Casino has paid out four $1 million dollar jackpots recently. While many of the big jackpots game from players wagering more than $100, two of the players were wagering $25 at the time of their million-dollar wins at this casino.
Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood has paid two Dragon Link jackpots of at least $1 million. This wasn’t the only Hard Rock Casino in Florida to pay out a million-dollar Dragon Link jackpot. Less than a month ago Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa paid out another million-dollar jackpot.
The Mirage is currently being operated by Hard Rock. While the casino operator is making some changes, the property won’t be rebranded as a Hard Rock casino for a couple of years.
Las Vegas gamblers are hoping to see some of those million-dollar Dragon Link jackpots hit the Vegas Strip sooner than later.
