A local slot player is celebrating an early Thanksgiving this year, after winning over $620K on a slot machine at the Cannery Casino Hotel in North Las Vegas.
On Thursday, a lucky player hit the jackpot on a Wheel of Fortune slot machine manufactured by IGT. The player, who has chosen to remain anonymous, is believed to be a resident of Las Vegas. The $2.50 spin led to a $620,813.48 jackpot, making it one of the largest wins in the casino’s history.
