The jackpots keep rolling!

Harrah’s Las Vegas hotel-casino guests, Nicholas Blaskowski and Nicole Perry, were shocked and excited when the penny slot, Willy Wonka: World of Wonka, hit the jackpot on June 18.

The jackpot amount was just under one million at $944,337.37,  not a bad haul for a penny slot.
Popular slot machines like Wheel of Fortune®, Mega Bucks® and Wizard of Oz® routinely reach multi-million dollar jackpots. Players can win $1 Million in just one hand at table games playing  Three Card Poker, Let it Ride, Mississippi Stud Poker, Four Card Poker, Crazy 4 Poker, Ultimate Texas Hold’em or Texas Hold’em Bonus.

Winning close to $1 million on a penny slot is a bit rarer.

That is why congratulations are in order for Nicholas and Nicole, they've managed to walk away from Vegas huge winners.
