A guest at the giant Caesars Palace facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, had a slots session to remember last week as they managed to hit the jackpot on three consecutive occasions for cash prizes totaling $667,750.

The unnamed punter’s first win for an award of $125,000 came late on Tuesday evening courtesy of a $25 per-line wager on each roll of the Dragon Link slot from manufacturer Aristocrat Leisure Limited. 

Local television broadcaster KVVU-TV reports the player then went on to collect $383,500 in cash around 90 minutes later after getting lucky on the same brand of machine.

Successful Session

The Asia-themed Dragon Link slot was rolled out to North American casinos in 2017 as a successor to the Australian innovator’s already highly-popular Lightning Link game. It offers aficionados the opportunity to pocket seven-figure linked and standalone jackpots. 

The unidentified Caesars Palace punter’s luck got even better during the early hours of Wednesday morning as they finished their streak with a third $25 per-line win for $159,250 to take their total windfall up to $667,750.

However, the Daily Mail newspaper reports some 24% of the fortunate player’s wins were likely withheld by Caesars Palace in tax, which is required by local law anytime a jackpot reaches north of 300 times the initial wager. 

This will still have seen the lucky guy walk away with a very healthy bankroll in the region of $507,400.

Paltry Probability

Caesars Palace does not post the odds of winning a Dragon Link cash prize, although the Daily Mail reports the likelihood of banking a similar amount on the Powerball lottery game stands at just 0.000025%. 

For its part, the Investopedia financial news service asserted the chance of taking home a monetary reward from a casino slot ranges from one-in-5,000 to one-in-34 million.

Striking Sums

Nevertheless, this win came less than a month after another punter banked an impressive $1,037,828 cash prize, courtesy of a $25 per-line wager on a Dragon Link slot game at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas. 

Broadcaster KTNV-TV reports this same property subsequently went on to reward a player with a $1,635,693 windfall thanks to a $10 wager on its Wheel of Fortune Gold Spin Triple Gold machine.

The United States is home to over 900,000 slot machines, with the American Gaming Association stating these units saw their aggregated gross gaming revenues for 2023 rise by 3.8% year-on-year to top $35.51 billion. 

This followed a fourth quarter wherein the innovations chalked up combined revenues of $8.77 billion, which represented an annual boost of 3.6%.
