Be still our hearts: February’s top 5 jackpots in the Las Vegas Valley

For a short month, February is packed with noted celebrations.

From Black History Month to Groundhog Day, from St. Valentine’s Day to Presidents Day, the second month of the year — every four years — even gets a Leap Day thrown in for good measure.

Here are five of the more memorable conquests this past month in the Las Vegas Valley:

5. Two players win combined $360K in one weekend at Strip casino

You might have heard about Super Bowl 58. Several people, locals and visitors alike, used the time to enjoy some leisure time at the tables or in front of the slots.

A pair of players won roughly $181,000 each taking different routes.

4. $122K slots jackpot hits in downtown Las Vegas

While seeing the Circa jackpot was enjoyable, it was the winner at Durango that drew my attention.

While awaiting his paperwork/payout on an $80,000 win, he then won $25,000 on a different machine.

3. 5 jackpots totaling $600K hit on Las Vegas Strip over Super Bowl weekend

“Did, umm … did Caesar live here?” “No.” “I didn’t think so.”

Can you believe “The Hangover” is marking its 25th anniversary this year? What you can believe is that those five jackpots all hit at Caesars Palace that weekend.

2. $200K video poker jackpot hits at Las Vegas Valley casino

Suncoast made a few jackpot headlines in February.

1. $1.2M table game jackpot hits at Las Vegas Strip casino

The biggest win of the month gets in under the wire.
