For the third time this year, someone playing a slot machine at the Cosmopolitan hit a jackpot topping $1 million.
This time, the lucky player hit for $1,023,743 on her 960th spin on a Wheel of Fortune machine, the Cosmopolitan announced Monday via Twitter.
“Santa came early,” the message noted.
In May, a Canadian visitor in Las Vegas for one brother’s bachelor party and another’s birthday hit a $1.3 million Wheel of Fortune jackpot. And in January, a 26-year-old Florida man won $1 million playing a Simpsons machine.
