Cathy Sullivan has been coming to Fantasy Springs Resort Casino for years because it's her favorite casino. Cathy's doubly sure of that feeling after a recent, very exciting Saturday night. Cathy, from the town of Brawley, CA, located about an hour south of Fantasy Springs, entered the casino's "Audi Madness" Grand Prize Giveaway, held during the month of March. During one of the qualifying drawings, Cathy heard her name called on the loudspeaker. That meant she had five minutes to get to the game stage and play for a chance to win the brand new Audi A4. Problem was, Cathy's driver license had expired and she was awaiting her new one in the mail. Without a valid ID, she could not enter the drawing. For a moment, she thought her hopes of winning the luxury automobile were dashed. Then, she remembered something. She picked up her mail the previous day but had not opened it. The stack of letters was still sitting in the front seat of her car. With the game clock ticking, Cathy ran as fast as she could to her car, grabbed her mail and ran back inside the casino. She made it back to the game stage with seconds to spare. Almost miraculously, she held an envelope from the Department of Motor Vehicles. She ripped it open to reveal her new driver license. You could say this was Cathy's first jackpot. This made her eligible to come back on Saturday, March 26th for the grand finale and play for the shiny new audi A4. "I thought finding my license like that was a good omen for later," said Cathy.
Her luck did continue through to the Saturday during the grand finale drawing. Cathy and the other contestants vying for the luxury car each picked a keychain at random which bore a number. As the game's emcee spun the prize wheel filled with numbers corresponding to the numbers on the keychains, the finalists waited with eager anticipation. The wheel landed on the number matching Cathy's keychain, meaning the $50,000 Audi A4 was hers to drive home. "I could not believe it, that it landed on my number. Though somewhere I though that because of my luck with my drivers license, I'd have good luck with the car, too."
Another sporty, luxury car is up for grabs at Fantasy Springs through May 21st. Fantasy Rewards members can receive free entries into the Picture Porsche Perfect Giveaway from 8am to 11pm Sunday through Friday for each week's qualifier drawings. Saturdays, patrons must come back to activate their entries and find out if their names have been called as part of the 12 contest qualifiers. Three of those qualifiers will win $1,000 in free slot play and go on to play for the luxury sports car on May 21st. The nine remaining contestants each receive $500 in free slot play. Finalists playing for the $60,000 Porsche Boxter will converge on the Fantasy Springs game stage Saturday night, May 21st. Each selects a keychain with a number on it. The player who holds the keychain matching the number on which the prize wheel lands will drive home in the sporty new ride.
