Lucky Dude Hits $1.25 Million Jackpot at Circa
A lucky sonofabitch hit a $1.25 million jackpot at Circa Las Vegas on Sep. 18, 2022.
Sorry, “lucky fellow.” Bloke? Hombre? Take your pick, he’s one lucky sonofabitch. If you can’t handle the occasion bad word, you shouldn’t be on the Internet.
Anyway, a fellow named Marc hit for $1,250,033.48.
The machine was Buffalo Diamond.
If you just heard “Buffalooooo” in your head, you’re probably Vegas enough.
This isn’t the first million-dollar-plus jackpot at Circa. A player snagged $1,075,234.28 on Nov. 14, 2021.
Because that’s all the information we have about the jackpot until the news release drops, we’ll share some perfunctory jackpot facts.
When a multi-million-dollar jackpot hits on a progressive machine, there is much revelry.
The revelry lasts for several minutes, until the slot manufacturer shows up and then it’s all business. (Casinos don’t generally pay progressives, it’s the slot maker who pays.)
On a big win, 24% of the win is withheld for the IRS. She do take a bite, don’t she?
The player has the option of taking a lump sum for the rest of the jackpot, or they can choose an annuity (annual payments).
Next, the player tips the slot attendant and cocktail server or bartender generously. Sometimes. Oh, all right, rarely. Let’s not dwell on the awkward parts. Read more.
Winning a big jackpot is what keeps the Las Vegas dream alive, and it’s always enjoyable to pretend to be happy for the lucky winner despite the fact we’ve dumped some serious money into slot machines and have yet to win a million dollars.
Fun fact: Circa is owned by the same folks at Golden Gate and The D. A player won $1.4 million at The D on May 4, 2022 and another lucky bastard won $1.3 million at Golden Gate on June 2, 2022.
We just so thrilled for all the winners of these giant jackpots, we can hardly keep from dancing around gleefully on their behalf. There is no place in Las Vegas for jealousy or resentment!
Good going, Marc. Please leave some for the rest of us.
