Winning Jackpot Stories #3
If you are looking for the true ‘dream makers’ in the casino, that award goes to the ever-increasing progressive jackpots. These ‘life changing’ jackpots present the slot player with more choices both online and offline than ever before. I have compiled some of these Winning Stories to brighten your dreams tonight.
He Did It His Way: Larry Giusti of Galveston, TX wanted to play the Vegas themed version of the Frank Sinatra slot, but settled for New York instead until his choice became available. After moving over to the vacant slot and $100 later, Vegas and Frank made Larry a ‘very happy man’ by producing a $503,549 jackpot. While Sinatra has always been his favorite singer, you can now add the Isle of Capri Casino to that list.
It’s a Two-Fer: “When the Wheel of Fortune symbols were appearing every now and then, I had this feeling,” says Ruby Bolin. That ‘feeling’ was spot-on with an eventual win totaling $268,337 from the Silver Star Casino that she plans to share with her hubby and children. There’s more...one day later, along comes Sue McGuire Thornton of Northport, AL to also play the Wheel to hit a jackpot of $225,613.
The Winning System.
A Wheel of Fortune slot, $20 and the Isle of Capri Casino in Bossier City, LA turned out to be the winning formula for Beth Rodell. Beth, a resident of Centreville, TX explained her ‘system’ that enabled her to walk away with $1,156,831. “I just love Wheel of Fortune quarters and the Jeopardy! Game.” “I cashed out on this machine and was ready to move on to another. But, I always play three more times after I cash out on any machine. It sure paid off this time.
I couldn’t believe my eyes when it hit. “I was shocked when I realized it was the Big One.”. Besides allowing for a much better retirement, Beth will share the bounty with her children.
A Native American Record
Did you know that there is an exclusive Native American progressive network? Wildhorse Casino Resort is part of the 11-state Native American Progressive Slot network that includes Oregon, New Mexico, Louisiana, Kansas, Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Connecticut. If was, in fact, Wildhorse Casino that recorded the largest jackpot win of $ 9,164,299 in the history of this game.
This casino also boasts the ‘place to be’ for nine of the 18 primary jackpots won in Oregon. The previous record, now demoted to second, was for $ 7.4 million at a Wisconsin tribal casino. The winning couple, Bob and Mollie Breshears of Washington state invested only $20. “When Bob hit the jackpot, I thought he was joking,” Mollie stated. “I never thought anything like this would ever happen.
I guess the first thing we will do is visit some of our family.” There will now be time and sharing among the six children and 16 grandchildren for this beekeeper and his retired wife.
