Coming in, the individual headed into the Plaza Hotel and Casino and took a shot at Monopoly Millionaire, unwitting that they would be counting $1,029,529.13 in fresh earnings very soon. The casino reported that it took the player less than five minutes to secure a victory.
Luck has of course played its role, but the anonymous winner hasn’t protested against how fate had favored him. Jackpots have been a common sight in Las Vegas, with winners making headlines week in and week out.
Feeling the Luck of the Irish
The festivities surrounding St Patrick’s Day have definitely caught a lot of people in a festive mood. Even though the holiday is not as well-known around the country, St Patrick’s Day upbeat ambiance has made it so for many foreigners to readily join the party.
If there is one place where you will see a lot of St Patrick’s though, that’s Las Vegas. The gambling haven has used every opportunity to whip up excitement and make visitors slightly headier in deciding how much to stake on one of the many opportunities out there.
In the case of our Hawaiian visitor, though, luck had found him before Las Vegas could suck him in entirely.
Now, $1 million richer, this islander will remember St. Patrick’s quite fondly and while he’s unlikely to make another headline any time soon, he’s already had quite the profit to take home indeed.
