Las Vegas jackpot winner waited whole life to hit it big

The wait was well worth it for transplanted Chicago native.

The Windy City retiree, who now lives in Las Vegas, realized a lifelong dream on Thursday when she won $96,000 at Rampart Casino.

She hit a 10-bet Royal Flush with a multiplier when she finally hit a big jackpot, according to a news release.

The winner, who didn’t want to be identified, said “I’ve been waiting my whole life to hit a jackpot like this!”

Last month, a 98-year-old Las Vegas-area woman cashed in on a $44,649.29 jackpot at the casino.
