TEMECULA, Calif. (Sept. 14, 2017) – Robert Osbourne of La Habra, California came into Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula on a recent Monday night. A certain $1.00 Monopoly slot machine by WMS Gaming looked lucky to him so he sat down and played the max bet of $5.00. Within 10 minutes and only $20 played in the machine, Osbourne says the machine reels froze on symbols across the center of the screen. What he did not initially realize was he had just won nearly one-half of one million dollars – $425,703.49. The military veteran says he was shocked beyond belief to find out how much the actual amount of the windfall.
“This is life changing for me and my family,” said Osbourne as he talked with casino staff. “I plan on paying off my mortgage, but it’s really going to help me, my wife and kids be comfortable and not worry about money. I’d also like to do something to help my community. I’m still kind of in shock and it hasn’t sunk in yet.”
