Best winning slots in Vegas

Las Vegas casinos' biggest winners  November 8, 2015 – 08:22 am

Visitors hear it all the time when they come to Las Vegas: These big casinos weren't built on letting people win. But on occasion, people do win and they win big. Statistically those who play on high-limit machines (say, a minimum of $250 per pull on a slot machine) earn bigger payouts, but there are plenty of other ways to hit the jackpot.

Sunset Station and Green Valley Ranch, two off-Strip casinos that cater to both visitors and locals, have seen their fair share of big winners on penny slots with progressive payouts. Progressive jackpots grow slowly but surely, with multiple machines all competing for the big win. One of the largest progressive payouts in history happened in 1998 at Palace Station, where a retired flight attendant dropped $300 into a Megabucks machine and was rewarded with $27.5 million. Last year at Sunset Station, a local hit the Willy Wonka progressive for $741, 287.92, while another made $670, 280 off The Walking Dead machine. One tourist walked away with $383, 852.19 from the Lord of the Rings game.

One of the most legendary slots in gaming history is known as the Lion's Share at MGM Grand, a $1 machine that is one of the originals from when the property opened 20 years ago. It never paid out its progressive jackpot in all that time, until August of last year when a couple from New Hampshire got the lucky lions all in a row for $2.4 million.

It isn't all about pouring your cash into a machine and hoping the algorithms calculate in your favor. Huge money can be won at table games as well. There are a number of ways to become a millionaire at Caesars properties, such as Harrah's and Planet Hollywood. Three-card poker with million-dollar jackpots had the winning hand for several visitors, including Shawna Caldwell from South Carolina and Matthew Bloodgood of Oregon. So far, Caesars has paid $1 million jackpots 11 times, with five in 2014 alone.

When you're super serious about poker, there's a whole event dedicated to you. Last year's World Series of Poker tournament attracted a record 82, 360 players from 110 countries, generating the largest prize pool in tournament history of $227 million. The $10 million grand prize went to 27-year-old Martin Jacobson of Stockholm, Sweden.

Just because Jacobson is a professional poker player, doesn't mean that Lady Luck can't smile on you too.
