A lucky nurse from Oakland, Calif., is $884,468 richer after hitting the progressive jackpot on a Star Trek Battle Stations™ penny slot on Monday, April 2 at Red Hawk Casino.
Maricel was visiting Red Hawk Casino with her brother-in-law and had just sat down to the Star Trek Battle Stations™ community slot machine. She had never played the game before and thought she'd give it a try. After she hit the bet button a mere three times, the machine suddenly stopped. Maricel called her brother-in-law on his cell phone and told him she thought her machine was broken. Her brother-in-law got very excited and explained that she probably won a big progressive jackpot. Within minutes he joined her at the machine and a Red Hawk slot host confirmed that Maricel had hit the top progressive payout of $884,468.
After learning of her win, Maricel said, "We always like to play at Red Hawk and almost didn't come up today. But I ended up getting off work early so we decided to have some fun at the casino." Maricel plans to go to work the day following her big win, as she enjoys the help she's able to provide her patients. When asked what she planned to do with her jackpot winnings, Maricel explained that she will be helping her family and continue in her nursing career. Maricel says she will definitely be back to Red Hawk Casino soon, as it is her favorite place to play.
