TEMECULA, Calif. – (Feb 24, 2023) – One Temecula woman has more than one hundred thousand additional points of light to look to following a major jackpot win at Pechanga Resort Casino. Nineveh Cannavino played the $0.50 Happy Lantern Lightning Link slot machine by Aristocrat Gaming on a recent Sunday evening. After spending about an hour at the machine, she says she felt a premonition like something was about to happen. The spotlight shined on that feeling as the lucky lantern grand progressive flashed across the screen on her next spin. Fifteen lanterns lined up and illuminated, meaning she won the progressive and would take home $112,101.73.
She said she wished her father was with her to share in the celebration upon winning. Cannavino told Pechanga staff this was her first thought after she knew she won the windfall. She also mentioned she would split some of the money among her children. “I have six,” she said smiling.
