A Hawaiʻi resident turned a stay at Boyd Gaming’s Fremont Hotel and Casino into a $1,098,478 payday when she hit a giant jackpot on IGT’s Wheel of Fortune slots on Saturday, Nov. 23.

The player, who wanted to remain anonymous, parlayed a $5 spin into the major prize at 8:50 Saturday evening playing IGT’s Wheel of Fortune Gold Spin Triple Gold Slots.

This is the second life-changing jackpot scored by a Hawaiʻi resident visiting a Boyd Gaming downtown Las Vegas property in the last two months. On Oct. 7, a long-time Boyd Gaming customer from Hawaiʻi hit a $930,000 jackpot at Main Street Station Casino Brewery Hotel. The lucky player was staying just across the street at Boyd Gaming’s California Hotel and Casino.

Boyd Gaming Corporation was founded in 1975 and operates 29 gaming entertainment properties in 10 states.
