TEMECULA, Calif. – (March 4, 2014) – Single mother of a four-year-old girl, Natosha Heard, had been having some bad luck the last few months. The transmission on her unreliable car had died and she was driving a rental car. Payments for the rental car and other bills had begun to pile up. On Sunday, March 2, she managed to get a day off from tending to patients and health care providers as a health care insurance representative. She opted to spend some time playing a $0.01 “Let’s Make a Deal” slot machine at Pechanga Resort & Casino. It was getting late in the afternoon and before she was about to drive home to Anaheim, she took the slot machine reels for one more spin. In less than one second, lights began flashing, bells began ringing, and Natosha began screaming. She hit the winning combination to score the progressive jackpot worth $295,423.30.
