Progressive Wheel of Fortune slot hits at Riviera The Riviera Casino & Hotel was very lucky for a Delaware woman. The Progressive Wheel of Fortune jackpot hit on Friday, Aug. 9, 2013, when a Rehoboth Beach, Del., resident Mozelle Wallace was playing on her 69th birthday, on a 25 cent machine and in only her second pull on that machine, with a max bet of 75 cents, three Wheel of Fortunes appeared for a total payout of $937,608.36. 

The Riviera was also lucky in March for Virginia Noland from Westminster, Colo., who won $1,161,223.60 at the Riviera Casino & Hotel playing the 1,000,000 Degrees game on her first $20 in the machine.

Celebrating more than 55 years of non-stop entertainment, the Riviera Casino & Hotel is one of the iconic casino and hotel destinations in Las Vegas.
