Life-changing moment at Atlantis Casino Resort Spa

Guest hit jackpot on Wheel of Fortune® slot, wins over $3.89 million

 RENO, NV. – After placing a max bet, the player waited. A notice popped up on the screen that an attendant was needed. The guest sat, thinking the machine was broken, until realization dawned on her. She sat in shock, staring at the number in front of her - $3,894,219.06. And it was all hers. That was the scene at Atlantis Casino Resort Spa on Sunday, February 16, 2014, when the IGT-operated Wheel of Fortune® slot paid out big.

 “You always see other people win, but you never expect it to be you,” said the guest who declined to be identified. “We love the hospitality [at Atlantis]. The atmosphere is amazing. Everyone is so friendly and willing to go out of their way to help.”

 The guest from Nevada said that bills will be paid off with the winnings, and then travel is in the future – first to Ireland, then to Hawaii and an Alaskan cruise. “The past four years have been rough for us. I told my husband that this was our year. I just can’t believe this,” said the winner.

 The guest put $50 into the machine, and the jackpot hit when there was just $13.50 left. “It could happen to anyone. I just sat down to play,” she said. Champagne was served casino-wide, and balloons were placed by the winning machine as a part of the celebration.

This $3,894,219.06 payout comes on the heels of three $100,000 wins on February 2, 2014 at Atlantis’ Big Bowl Bash. Atlantis has awarded $5.9 million in casino-wide progressives, totaling over 55,500 winners. Atlantis is the progressive place to play!
