Sergio Becomes 2nd Millionaire in 1 Week @ 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, Sergio Alvarez from Perris, Calif. became the newest millionaire in Riverside County, scoring $1,050,009.21 on a $1.00 Gol den Pagodas Gold Series slot machine by Rocket Gaming. After only 20 minutes and $100 played on the machine, Alvarez 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.”

Rocio H. Won $1 Million Jackpot at Pechanga

TEMECULA, Calif. – (Feb. 25, 2015) – A slot player at Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, Calif. out scared up a million dollar jackpot Tuesday on The Walking Dead Slot Game.™. Rocio H. from Chino Hills, California won $1,053,775.64 just before 2:00p.m., but without any blood-curdling screams, Tuesday. She was visiting the casino with her parents. A fan of the TV show, Rocio chose to play the penny slot, but at first did not play with max bets. A few spins before the jackpot hit, she decided to risk a bit more. She watched the zombie symbols line up across the screen and realized she hit the progressive, million-dollar jackpot. She had only been playing the machine for 10 minutes before she scored the frighteningly awesome windfall.


“We are thrilled to have the wide area progressive hit here at Pechanga Resort & Casino and it couldn’t have happened to a nicer lady,” said Buddy Frank, Vice President of Slot Operations. “The Walking Dead slots have been some of the most popular we’ve seen here and this million-dollar jackpot is sure to create even more zombie buzz for the game.”

“The response to our Walking Dead Slot Game has been tremendous,” said Dallas Orchard, Vice President of Gaming Operations for Aristocrat Technologies, Inc. “The game gives people some edge-of-your-seat thrills just like the show itself. The winner at Pechanga certainly had that feeling and we are very excited for her.”

The game’s tagline, “it pays to play dead,” came true for Rocio. Released in 2014, the Pechanga Resort & Casino jackpot is the first $1 million payout for the popular slot machine which won “Casino Product of the Year” at last year’s Global Gaming Awards.

The last million-dollar jackpot won at Pechanga Resort & Casino was on Thanksgiving Day in November 2014.
