The slot machines at McCarran Airport in Las Vegas are generally not a great bet and you are much better off waiting until you get to you hotel to gamble; That being said occasionally someone does win a big jackpot at the airport.

Recently a Southern California woman won a $873,511 jackpot on a Wheel Of Fortune machine on concourse C. The woman was playing $5 a hand on the penny machine when she hit the grand price.

The payback percentage is much worse for the machines at the airport than downtown or even the Strip so I also recommend people skip these machines however tempting. The fact she beat the odds and has one of the biggest jackpots at the airport is amazing and congrats to her.
