IE Resident Wins Big – TWICE – On the Same Day for More Than $250,000

Big Winner Gino Mangino at Pechanga Quick Hit Slots

Big Winner Gino Mangino at Pechanga Quick Hit Slots

TEMECULA, Calif. – (July 15, 2014) – Last week’s July 4th holiday was a day of celebration for more than one reason for local Riverside resident and business owner Gino Mangini. In fact, it was a day of double celebration as he hit not one, but two big jackpots at Pechanga Resort & Casino. A frequent visitor of the casino, Mangini usually plays the $10 Quick Hit slot machines and has won numerous smaller jackpots in the past. Last Friday, Mangini hit the jackpot again, winning $5,000. Feeling lucky, he decided to take his winnings and move to a bigger and better machine. He was hoping his luck would hold steady and snag him the featured $25,000 payout. Playing the $25 Quick Hit, it wasn’t long before Mangini struck it rich, again, this time winning a High Limit jackpot of $250,000.

When asked about his double jackpot winnings, Mangini said, “It’s just luck, you know. Luck is all it is. I’ve won here plenty of times before, but nothing this big, so I must just be a lucky guy.” Mangini is the owner of Mangini and Sons, a general contracting business located in Riverside, Ca. With no immediate plans for his big winnings, he will most likely put them in the bank or invest in his business. Pechanga Resort and Casino makes winners out of players everyday.
