Pair of 6-figure jackpots hit hours apart at Strip casino

As cars raced down the Las Vegas Strip Wednesday night for the Las Vegas Grand Prix, so did the hearts of two Caesars Palace guests who each won six-figure jackpots just hours of each other.

Terry Turner, a guest from Vermont who is visiting Las Vegas to watch the Grand Prix, hit a $125,000 jackpot while playing slots at 10 p.m. Wednesday. Turner hit the jackpot after just eight spins.

At 5 a.m. Thursday morning, another guest hit a jackpot and won $100,000 playing video poker, according to Caesars Entertainment.
