Las Vegas’ Rampart Casino High Limit Gaming Room Sees $100K Win on Opening Night 

The Rampart Casino at the JW Marriot Las Vegas Resort and Spa this week opened a shiny new high limit gaming room. The opening night proved fortuitous for one lucky gambler, who walked out with a $100,000 video poker jackpot win.

As well as video poker, the new High Limit area contains a bar, lounge area, and a slots room. The Rampart, owned by Canadian company Hotspur Resorts, also added a new and exclusive progressive slot jackpot that is set for a guaranteed weekly hit between $15,000 and $25,000. 

One guest kicked off the new room in great style this week. An unnamed Las Vegas local was playing Triple Double Bonus Poker when they hit a four aces and a four for a massive $100,000 payout. 

“One lucky local just hit the jackpot in our newly renovated High Limit Room, taking home a whopping $100,000,” the casino said, showcasing a photo of the win on social media.

The High Limit Room 

The new high limit room at The Rampart adds several dozen video poker and slot machines, table games, and an exclusive bar and lounge. The bar promises high-end drinks choices, including brand new signature cocktails. 

The 57,000-square-foot casino already offered more than 1,000 slot machines, a 300-seat bingo room, and a sportsbook area. The JW Marriot Las Vegas Resort and Spa has 750 hotel rooms, and as you might expect from the name, spa and wellness facilities. 

“While we offer numerous loose penny slot machines throughout the regular slot floor, our new High Limit Slots Room truly focuses on the discerning needs of the high limit slot gambler,” said Rampart’s Vice President of Casino Operations, Sam Garritano.

 “And with the introduction of the first-ever progressive jackpot just for our high limit slot players, it’s poised to become the ultimate destination for local high rollers.”

The Controversy 

The Rampart could use some good press, given recent events. Over the past month, the casino has been the focus of a boycott campaign from influential Las Vegas unions The Culinary Union and Unite Here. 

Union investigators revealed that the casino’s gaming license lists one Shirazalli Jafferali Lalji as the director of the venue. However, he died in March 2020. 

Aminmohamed Jafferali Lalji, Shirazalli’s brother, is the executor and trustee of the estate. He does not hold a Nevada Gaming License. Union officials have since demanded an investigation from regulator the Nevada Gaming Control Board.
