INDIO, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- $20 and a few minutes. That was the winning combination for Richard Becerra of Coachella, CA to win a windfall of cash at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino. Richard had been playing a $0.50 Double Diamond Wheel of Fortune slot machine inside the Palm Springs area casino for only a few minutes. He had $20 put into the machine and was making max bets. Richard was hopeful as he watched the first reel land on a Wheel of Fortune symbol in the center of the screen. The next reel, then the third landed on Wheel of Fortune symbols in the middle of the slot machine glass. His eyes lit up with elation. He knew he would be taking home a big jackpot, but he had no idea how much until one of the slot attendants told him he had won the progressive jackpot amount of $219,572.00.
"I could not believe it," Richard said. "I come here to hang out maybe once a week since it's close by but I never thought I'd win anything like this." Richard said he was too excited to think about what he might do with his winnings.
Back in March of 2010, a man from Joshua Tree, CA won the progressive Wheel of Fortune jackpot of $272,121. Fantasy Springs Resort Casino is the place where winners play. So far this August, Fantasy Springs casino winners have taken home $1,400,000.00. You could be next.
Players receive even more perks when they use their Fantasy Rewards cards in their favorite slot and video poker machines.
