Isn't this like the second big jackpot at the airport in just a couple weeks. I mean the airport is like the worse play you can play isn't it with like a 70% return? lol

If I was a conspiracy guy, I would wonder if they were loosening up airport slots for the publicity to get more people to Vegas.....but I am not. :/

Yes.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

In the weeks after 9-11, when there were no flights in or out of vegas, I read that people were surprised that there was so much activity on the slots. I think Jackie Gaughan ran them at the time, and it's now run by his son.

I wonder if the winner:

A: got the verification on time before her flight
B: Happily missed her flight to get verification, and made the next flight
C: Happily missed her flight to get verification. Went back to Vegas for a few more nights to celebrate.

If that was me, I'd be a solid B. And buying up to first class, too.

Perhaps they are not that much worst than many of the slots on the strip.

I would guess the Mega Jackpot games are not much lower if any than on the strip.

I really don't know. I am going by memory of a story I read sometime ago, saying that the airport was just about the worse place a person could play in regards to payout return. I thought I remember returns as low as 70%, but am happy to stand corrected at 75%. I am going by memory.

However, if she had hit that jackpot at a casino, she no doubt would have been comped a few night as the casino would be hoping to get at least some of that money back. Being it was the airport, I hope she made here flight and took every cent of it home with her. :)
