TEMECULA, Calif. — (Sept. 11, 2018) – They say good luck comes in all forms and the first weekend in September ushered in two separate jackpots paying out more than $1 million at Pechanga Resort Casino. On Saturday, Sept. 8, a very lucky Lake Elsinore lady played her favorite slot, the $1 denomination Buffalo Thundering 7s by Aristocrat. She came to the resort casino with friends to spend a fun Saturday night out.
As she played the slot, she won some and lost some. Suddenly, the bonus round struck and she hit the progressive jackpot for $881,333.44.
“At first, I thought I won $10,000, which would have been great, too,” said the winner who wished to remain anonymous. “This is wonderful. It’ll allow me to pay all my bills, and then some.”
The next day, Sunday, Sept. 9, a Garden Grove man walked up to a Fortune Asia Poker on a Pai Gow Progressive table and in addition to his regular $50 bet, he placed an additional bet of $1 that he would win the progressive amount of $165,431.65.
His side bet paid off in a big way. He scored the seven-card flush that won him the entire progressive jackpot. This winner also chose not to be named, though he was extremely happy to leave Pechanga with a lot more money than he came with. He also told table games staff he would be back soon.
Winners are made every day at Pechanga. You could be next.
