Player Wins $1.4 Million Jackpot on Wheel of Fortune Slot Machine

A lucky player took home a $1.4 million jackpot this week, while playing on the Wheel of Fortune slot machine in Potawatomi Hotel and Casino in Milwaukee. The game, which has been created by IGT, is one of the most popular games in the land-based casino industry, attracting players from all over.


The game is very popular due to the brand, as almost everyone knows what Wheel of Fortune is. Furthermore the high chances of winning prizes along with the big progressive jackpots, is something which players are keen on winning and makes them play the game more than most other slots.


The player, who decided to remain anonymous, said that he wasn’t sure what he wanted to spend the money on just yet, but that he was going to spoil the family and perhaps go travel. Just like most other winners of big jackpots, the winner was uncertain of what to say or do and didn’t really expect to win life changing money the way he did.


IGT has created more than 200 different slot machines which are installed in casino’s around the world. They have experienced a large growth after focusing on the land-based industry rather than the online industry.
