Broward woman wins $2.3 million slot machine jackpot at…

Can you imagine 2.3 million dollars from a slot machine. I doubt very much that kind of jackpot will ever be allowed  in the UK. It seems from the story that the machine was a linked progressive jackpot. The maximum allowed in the UK under the  2005 gaming act is £20,000 with a maximum stake of £5. This mega jackpot was won with a maximum stake of $3. So why not here in the UK land based casinos because £20,000 is not exactly life changing in todays society. In the past in the UK casinos there has been a few £200,000 + on progressive blackjack, again why not here on our slot machines.

The current Jackpot at the Genting Casinos progressive jackpot stands at £220,000 now that would have a little effect on your lifestyle. There was a greater win in Vegas a few months earlier to the tune of $11.8 million.

The winner, identified only as Rodolfo T., hit the jackpot about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Fremont in downtown Las Vegas. He made a max-bet wager on the IGT Megabucks Double 3X4X5X

When I was in South Africa a few years ago the jackpot was a house, no not a house a mansion by the sea, so again why can there not be similar value of prizes in the UK the stakes are higher here. Of course the government wants to protect us.

However if you do want to try to win a life changing amount here in the UK then you can but not at a casino. Stay indoors or on your mobile device and go online. The largest online win ever to date was by a Britiish soldier who won a staggering £13.2 million from a 25p stake.

“She was speaking to family and friends. They didn’t believe her, so it almost made her doubt herself,” said LuAnn Fetcho, the casino’s vice president of marketing.


Fetcho added the woman is a frequent player at the Hard Rock, but is not considered to be a high-roller.

The woman said the first thing she’s going to do with her winnings is pay off debt and buy an iPad.


Tuesday’s jackpot was the largest at the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, but not the largest in the company’s history. In 2012, a player won $3.6 million at the Seminole Hard Rock in Tampa. Get email alerts for local stories and events around the world. Sign Up
