Texas Penny Slot Pays $1.2 Million
A woman in San Antonio, Texas got the best Valentine's Day surprise of her life (probably) while playing the slots at her favorite casino. She became a millionaire in seconds at the Kickapoo Lucky Eagle Casino-Hotel in Eagle Pass.
Officials from the casino say the woman, who exercised her rights to privacy and was asked to be identified only as 'Mary,' won more than $1.2 million while playing a penny machine on the holiday at the casino. News of her win spread like wildfire across the casino floor that day, inspiring many others to play some slot games.
“On behalf of the entire team here at Kickapoo Lucky Eagle Casino Hotel, congratulations to Mary on her BIG win. We are so excited that she hit the BIG ONE right here," said interim GM Jim Dickstein.
