The airport has about 1,400 slot machines scattered through the concourses, gate areas, and baggage claim. Providing a last hurrah in Sin City before returning home.
Megan’s haul is large, and no doubt a bigger payout than most tourists get while at the airport slot machines, but it’s not a record.
That would be $3.96 million, according to a statement to USA Today. In fact, they report a visitor from California won $873,000 last summer.
