Slot players walked away with big jackpots over the weekend in Las Vegas.
On Saturday, the IGT “Wheel of Fortune” Lucky 7s jackpot was hit at Arizona Charlie’s Decatur.
The winning jackpot totaled about $1.67 million. The $1 progressive game resets to the base amount of $1 million.
Then on Sunday, the IGT “Wheel of Fortune” Triple Hot Ice game was hit at Wynn Las Vegas on the Strip.
That jackpot totaled about $343,000, and the 25-cent progressive game resets to the base amount of $200,000.
Both winners chose to remain anonymous, an IGT spokeswoman said in an email.
IGT progressive jackpots typically offer a lump sum payment less than the actual jackpot or they can be paid out in annual installments over a number of years.
Also, on Friday a player won $400,000 after being dealt four aces with a kicker while playing 100 Play Triple Double Bonus video-poker game in the high limit room at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, a spokeswoman for the hotel said in an email. The name of the player was not available.
