A male slots player from Long Beach played with penny slot machine and went home an instant millionaire from the Pechanga casino after winning $1,061,225.26 on an Indiana Jones slot machine at 10:48 a.m. on October 9th, 2009.
The loyal Pechanga slots player knew he had hit a substantial amount of money but it took him quite a while to realize how big it was. The lucky player, who has been coming to the casino since 2002 said that he was in a daze after hitting the jackpot. He said that he plans to use his winnings to save his mother's house.
There has been a slots jackpot frenzy at the Pechanga Casino with the latest winner from Long Beach becoming the 4th big winner in just more than two months at the biggest gaming facilities in the Western US. A resident of Anaheim hit the $678,367.00 jackpot on the Mystery of the Mask slot machine last September 2009.
Another slots jackpot of $799,041 on a Wizard of Oz progressive slot machine was won by a female player from Chino Hills in early September 2009. A $500,000 Bally Quick hit winner also hit in late July 2009.
Pechanga VP of Slots Buddy Frank said that the casino has more slot machines than any other casino in the state of California and far more than any casino Las Vegas.
Frank said that it is not unusual that they have more slot machine jackpots than anyone else with the amount of machines that they offer. He added that when someone wins a substantial amount of money, it adds to the excitement on the gaming floor with both of Pechanga's guests and their team members.
The Pechanga Resort and Casino is located in Temecula Valley, which is just an hour away from Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego and Ontario Airports.
Lottery Commission and Camptown Greyhound Fails to Reach Final Slots Agreement
On January 6th, 2008, a lot of people have been shocked to hear that the $30 million renovation at the Camptown Greyhound which will now be known as the New Frontier, has come to a stop $8 million into the casino project.
The general manager for the racing track, Kevin Allis commented that the renovation come to a halt because the racing track and the Kansas Lottery Commission failed to finalized a contract agreement. According to the Senate Bill 66, each racing track facilitator must negotiate a contract with the lottery.
In their first proposal, the officials of Camptown petitioned to keep about twenty five percent of their net revenues for facility management and an additional fifteen percent for their operational costs. The commission's offer does not include the fifteen percent operational costs. Allis commented that without the cash for their operational cost, the racing track tend to lose $2 million.
The main purpose of the slot machines is to put additional cash to the state's treasury but the lottery commission must also remember that the owners and the racing track must earn something in order to let the racing track remain open. Both the commission and the track official must find a way to finalize an agreement.
It is unreasonable on the part of the commission to expect the track to run without any earnings but to allow casinos to keep 75% of their profits and the track to keep only just 25%.
