Hawaiian tourist gets Monopoly Millionaire Jackpot won in Las Vegas

St Patrick Smiles on Hawaiian Who Wins $1m in Las Vegas

Las Vegas is a place where quite a few interesting stories begin, and sometimes even end. A Hawaiian visitor of the city arrived for St. Patrick’s Day determined to have a bit of fun.

He (or she) ended up leaving with over $1 million in fresh earnings they had won in less than five minutes playing a popular slot machine.

Here’s how it all happened.

The Luck of the Irish: Hawaiian Customer Wins $1m from Monopoly Millionaire

St Patrick’s Day is probably best celebrated in Las Vegas, anywhere outside Ireland that is.

Withold your scepticism. The inherent festivities that come hand-in-hand with the idea of Leprechauns, pots of gold, and a fair bit of drinking fit perfectly with the day-to-day state of affairs in Nevada’s gaming oasis.

So, when an unknown Hawaiian arrived in Las Vegas for St Patrick’s Day, they were quite delighted at the general celebratory mood that had spilt out of every casino property and onto the streets of the city.

Shortly after, the Hawaiian found themselves at the Plaza Hotel and Casino having a shot at Monopoly Millionaire. The Plaza Casino later reported on social media that it had taken the tourist less than five minutes to secure the impressive $1,029,529.13 in jackpot money.

St Patrick – Time for Profit

St Patrick’s Day is an Irish holiday that was brought over by the Irish. Today the Irish are fully integrated in the US and the descendants of the erstwhile immigrants don’t quite feel as outsiders at all.

Independently of them, St Patrick’s Day has been slowly edging its way into the American mainstream. All over the world, tucked away pubs in the strangest of countries have been announcing St Patrick’s Day celebrations.

Las Vegas is of course one of the many places not to miss out on this tradition, inviting gamblers to have a go at even “barmier” casino games and special events organized specifically for the occasion.

Our Hawaiian hero, though, didn’t really participate in much of what Las Vegas had planned for him. He simply sat down to play Monopoly Millionaire and bagged the precious $1 million in prizing money soon after, drawing admiration from other strangers on the Internet.

“Thank god that wasn’t me winning, or I’d still be on the floor,” one whimsical Facebook user said. Others kept piling in and congratulating the unknown player on their success.

The Hawaiian amassed a fair bit of profit in no time at all.

Well, here’s at least one person who will remember St Patrick’s Day in 2019 very fondly.
