    I have heard that Table Game big wins don't count as Handpay Jackpots/don't generate W2G's. Is this correct? For example, someone said he won $5,000 on a Roulette Game and didn't get a Jackpot/Handpay/W2G. He got a free game in a slot machine later that night and he won $1200 from it and got the JHW. He was like,"Weird how I won much more money on the Roulette Game and didn't get a JHW, but on the slot machine, I got less and got the JHW."

    To win $ 5 ,000.-- at a table is no jackpot. per se . Consider how many losses a player had experienced before during that session .
