A Wisconsin women identified only as ‘Rhonda L’ hit a $1.4 million-dollar jackpot playing a progressive slot machine at Golden Gate Hotel & Casino in downtown Las Vegas on Tuesday morning. She was playing Scientific Machines’ Million Degrees slot machine when she hit nine spots on the reels to collect a grand total of $1,453,640.47 on the winning spin. Reading the post, it is hard to tell who was more excited with the big win, Rhonda L or Derek Stevens as the owner of the Golden Gate. His first tweet after the big win was,  “Someone just hit the largest jackpot of my career. It happened @GoldenGateVegas 20 minutes ago. Driving in now, info and pic coming up. #NeverHadAMillion$Jackpot.” By early that afternoon, he took to Twitter again with, “Excited for Rhonda L from #Wisconsin! She just won $1,453,640.47 @GoldenGateVegas this morning. 9 Spots on @ScientificGames #MillionDegrees#FirstMillion$Winner! #DowntownLasVegas.” This second tweet was accompanied by a photo of Stevens and Rhonda L standing next to the winning machine. The lucky Wisconsin native was in town for a bingo tournament and killing time playing slots when she hit the jackpot.

In another report on covering this latest million-dollar Las Vegas jackpot, Stevens was quoted as saying, “She is a big fan of the D and Golden Gate so we really couldn’t have asked for a better winner.” He added, “”This is the biggest payout of my career in Las Vegas and our lucky casino player has made the experience unforgettable.” This big win could continue to boost tourism to Las Vegas from the cheese capital of the United States given that a Wisconsin man won a $1.23 million jackpot at another Las Vegas downtown casino this past February. According to, the unidentified slots player walked away with the seven-figure win while also playing IGT’s “Wheel of Fortune” progressive slot machine at The Freemont Hotel & Casino.

When anyone wins a large jackpot at any casino, it works to create excitement for the real money casino industry as a whole. Slot Machines make up anywhere from 60 to 80 percent of a casino’s overall revenue according to industry figures. That percentage tends to be higher at Las Vegas casinos located downtown such as Golden Gate and the Freemont with a greater mix between locals and tourists playing slots.
