A Rancho Cucamonga woman won $1,039,984 on Thursday morning at the Pechanga Resort & Casino after hitting the progressive jackpot on a $1 Gold Double Series slot machine.
The Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians are well known for abusing a large portion of their tribal members via disenrollment and abusing their civil and human rights in the bargain. But for those customers who have little conscience about where they spend their money, they can still strike it lucky.
The woman, Marian Williams, was playing early Thursday morning at 3:55 a.m. when the life-changing digits aligned.
"I could not believe it!" she told a Pechanga public relations representative. "I really feel so blessed and for this to happen on Thanksgiving ... It's awesome."
The Thanksgiving slot machine jackpot is the fourth of more than one million dollars at Pechanga Resort & Casino in four years, the release states. Three of these four jackpots were hit on the same bank of slot machines – the Gold Series by Rocket Gaming.
I wonder how many tribal members are happy for this woman, taking profit from the casino?
