Another New Millionaire at Pechanga

TEMECULA, Calif. – (March 2, 2015) – For the second time in less than one week, a slot player at Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, Calif. has hit a mega jackpot. At 12:45p.m. on Monday, a Perris, Calif. man became the newest millionaire in Riverside County, scoring $1,050,009.21 on a $1.00 Golden Pagodas Gold Series slot machine by Rocket Gaming. After only 20 minutes and $100 played on the machine, the man watched as three illuminated “Golden Pagoda” symbols lined up across the center of the screen.

“I knew I won,” said the retired iron worker. “There’s this line across the bottom of the screen that shows how much you win. It said the amount, but it took me a minute to believe it.”
