LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – An Arizona man won $ 2.9 million on a $ 5 bet on a Wheel of Fortune slot on April 27 at the Venetian, according to a press release on Wednesday.
The highest progressive jackpot in the IGT Wheel of Fortune Slots game was among several jackpots reported by the station. Together, the jackpots total more than $ 4.5 million paid out in the month of April.

In early April, a guest hit won two jackpots at the same time for a total of over $ 1 million. The guest was playing two Diamond Queen® games in the Venetian’s high limit lounge and won by getting the bonus on both games.
Three of the wins came hours apart on Sunday, April 18, on machines of different denominations and games:
