Pechanga Poker Prius Winner

TEMECULA, Calif. – (March 31, 2014) – Dan Baker of Wildomar, Calif. will be celebrating spring and adding fewer carbon emissions to the environment thanks to the brand new car he won in the Spring Fling Car Giveaway at the Pechanga Resort & Casino Poker Room. Baker, a teacher, smiled from ear to ear as he sat inside his new 2014 Toyota Prius worth more than $25,000.00 and posed for pictures. Pechanga Poker players qualified for the car drawing during the two days prior to the winner being selected. Drawings were held every 30 minutes for 10 hours each day. Each hour, two winners pocketed $200 (total of $8,000 in cash prizes) and were entered to win the sporty hybrid. After the stroke of midnight on Friday, March 28, the grand finale drawing was held in the Pechanga Poker Room. Dan Baker said he could not believe his ears when the announcer called his name.
