A lucky slots player won a $1.25m jackpot right as the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Mississippi was getting ready to celebrate its 25th anniversary.

The anonymous person made the $1 spin on the game Wheel of Fortune Triple Gold: Gold Spin on March 8.

The Biloxi property hadn’t seen such a significant win since November 2022 when someone hit a $1.18m pot. It was on the exact same slot machine – and for the exact same stakes – as the most recent big win.

These are still nowhere near the largest slot machine jackpot win in the history of Mississippi. That happened in March 2009 when a man won a whopping $14m while playing a Wheel of Fortune machine at the Hard Rock Biloxi.

The site of the most recent major win, the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino, has stood the test of time, surviving extremely tough times including Hurricane Katrina, the global recession, the BP oil spill, and the pandemic. When the Beau Rivage opened on March 15, 1999, it was the largest casino-hotel in the US outside of Nevada.
