$1.8M Jackpot Won at Golden Nugget Casino Laughlin

The Las Vegas Sun reported a $1.8 million jackpot win in a Laughlin, Nevada casino this week.

When vacationing at a gambling destination it’s standard to have a little breakfast and start the day with some casino games. This is exactly what Ernest Lopez and his girlfriend, Linda Boelter, of San Antonio, Texas, did on at the Golden Nugget on Monday.

Following their meal, the pair eventually took a seat at a Bally Technologies’ 1,000,000 Degrees Slot Machine and hit a $1,824,943 jackpot, which smashed the $1.5M jackpot won in February of this year.

Lopez was spinning on the max bet of $3 per spin on the 1 cent 300 coin game. Within 5 minutes of playing, the casino said he hit the top progressive jackpot at 12pm.

The 1,000,000 Degrees game offers players a chance to win the $1 million progressive jackpot when nine 1,000,000 Degrees symbols appear on the reels at max bet. Once won, the top progressive resets to $999,999.99 and continues to climb. The slot is connected to a linked jackpot combining the wagers made at casinos across the country to build the jackpots.

The previous record was set by a player at Ho-Chunk Gaming Madison in Madison, Wisconsin on February 11, 2015. The winner chose to remain anonymous and won a $1,507,335.10 jackpot.

Bally Technologies was acquired by Scientific Games, who delivers this and additional gaming content to land based casinos throughout The United States via its subsidiary, SG Games.

    That is a nice morning treat to top off one's bacon, eggs and coffee. I noted that one recent winner chose to remain anonymous and it seems that was allowed. This surprises me because when I lived in the US one of the conditions of many lotteries and casino's was that a winning player had to allow the lottery or casino to use their picture and name for publicity purposes in case of a big win. I like that here where I live now remaining anonymous is a right the player retains in case of a big win. If I suddenly had a huge fortune from the lottery or a casino jackpot I don't think I would want it advertised to the world.

    Wow! Nice going Ernest Lopez. That a great hit and it didn't take long after he sat down. It is amazing that it was hit just back in February of this year in a different state. I guess it's a good thing to be linked together like that. It has been such a long time since I've been in a land casino. I'm writing these slots down with the dates when they hit, so maybe, just maybe..... Well, you get it. Again, congratulations to Ernest Lopez. You go have fun with all that money

WOOOO real gentlemen - nothing at least as usual - they cant say the contrary of their last email i think.How explain that one day before as they rules said i am  not eligible for a bonus and one day after i am eligible ?and the problem is that i won the first day so how be clear when the second day i became eligible for  a  bigger bonus and that i have te permission to cashout ..but.nothing i lost.   there  will be any explanation I think:the only available that works in any same kind of   situation is that rules  can be changed as and when and how the casino wants - rules - no rules what importance  it was  a  freebie why will they pay ?i am stupid this is  the explanation.
