A lucky Caesars Rewards member, Joseph Jeckel, hit a Mega Progressive Jackpot on Crazy 4 Poker for $412,911 at Harrah’s Las Vegas last night, June 14.
The jackpot was the first mega progressive to hit at the all-new Harrah’s Las Vegas, which recently celebrated the completion of a $200 million renovation, including redesigned accommodations, enhancements to the casino floor and hotel lobby, and more.
“It’s an exciting new era at Harrah’s Las Vegas as we welcome guests to our recently renovated resort on The Strip,” said Dan Walsh, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Harrah’s Las Vegas. “Our Team Members have a lot to be proud of, and it’s always a joy to celebrate alongside our guests. We extend our congratulations to the winner of the first mega progressive jackpot to hit at the all-new Harrah’s Las Vegas and look forward to creating more unforgettable experiences under our roof.”
Jeckel is a Caesars Rewards member who was visiting the property on vacation from his home in Willoughby, OH. After about 15 minutes at the table, Jeckel hit the life-changing hand. Joined in celebration with his wife, the couple said they plan to use the money to pay off their home, set aside savings for their children’s college fund, and come back to Las Vegas more often.
