Biggest jackpot win in the history of Macao
(Macao, February 10, 2012) – Celebration abounded Friday at the Sands® Macao casino, as a lucky slot player from Heilongjiang province hit a huge HK$21 million Fa Fa Fa Grand Jackpot while playing a 5 Dragons slot machine. The God of Fortune must enjoy smiling down on the Ruby-level Sands Rewards Club player, as he remarked that he’s often a big winner, mentioning that he’d already won a large jackpot previously in another country. His colossal win is the single biggest jackpot hit at Sands Macao since its opening in 2004 and is the biggest ever in Macao.
“We’re so thrilled for our winner and his fantastic luck here at Sands today,” said Geoffry Andres, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Sands Casino-Hotel. “We want our guests to come here and have a great time while experiencing our amazing service, and it’s times like these that really stand out; you never know what your luck may bring at the slot machines or at the tables. We wish him continued good luck and hope to be able to host him again at Sands Macao very soon.”
Large jackpot wins, like Friday’s, can often be life-changing events for their winners. Slot players at Sands Macao have won a total of HK$26.3 million in winnings so far in the first month and a half of 2012. Over 9,000 jackpot hits generated HK$1.9 billion in total large jackpot winnings (HK$50,000 or greater) for slot players at Sands China properties in 2011, excluding tournament wins. Sands China casinos have witnessed 229 jackpot wins in 2011 that were one-million-dollar hits or above.
