The massive win is the largest the casino has seen since 2017
A lucky Ellis Island Hotel, Casino & Brewery club member started his February off with a bang by winning a whopping $905,754.63. Longtime Ellis Island player, David Frys hit the massive jackpot while playing the Buffalo Grand slot machine.
“I’ve been playing at Ellis Island for years now and am absolutely in shock with this win,” said Frys. “It’s not every Tuesday that you walk into your favorite local spot and leave with almost $1 million.”
The last time Ellis Island saw a win this large was in 2017, when a player hit the $747k jackpot on another Buffalo Grand machine.
“With 2020 being such a difficult year for everyone in Las Vegas, we couldn’t be more thrilled to have a loyal and local player hit this jackpot,” stated Ellis Island’s Marketing Director, Christina Ellis. “It’s especially exciting when we have winnings this large.”
