One person recently won a shocking amount of money at The Venetian in Las Vegas.

According to a tweet from the hotel’s official account, an unnamed person won $1.5 million on a $5 bet on a slot machine. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Yes, you read that sentence above correctly. A person put $5 into a slot machine and walked away with $1.5 million.

Vegas is truly an incredible place, and I love stories about people taking home huge stacks of cash after wagering small amounts.

It’s obviously insanely rare, and that’s partially what makes it so damn exciting.

This also isn’t the first time something like this has recently happened at The Venetian. Back in April, a man took home nearly $3 million on a Wheel of Fortune game.

Apparently, it’s the place to go if you’re looking to cash in on slots!

Having said all of that, I have never played slots and I don’t think I ever will. I just find them boring and a shade depressing.

Get me at a table and let me play blackjack. I’d rather do that any day of the week in Vegas.

Props to this individual for taking home a huge chunk of cash! Don’t spend it all in one place!
