One San Diego resident is extra thankful this holiday season because he hit it big at Barona Resort & Casino this weekend with a six-figure jackpot playing Wheel of Fortune(R).
Randy S., who said he and his family love to play at Barona because of the friendly staff that take such good care of them, hit a $438,894 jackpot Sunday afternoon while playing the Wheel of Fortune Jackpot progressive. The big win came just days after Thanksgiving, making it a special holiday bonus for Randy and his family.
"Huge jackpots like these are exciting any time of the year but are especially welcome during the holidays," said Rick Salinas, general manager of Barona Resort & Casino. "Just as I'm sure Randy is thankful for his winnings, we're thankful for him and his family for helping make this holiday season memorable for us as well."
The Wheel of Fortune(R) progressive system has a starting jackpot of one million dollars. In order to win the MegaJackpot(R), a player tries to line up the Wheel of Fortune(R) symbols on the machine's payline. Each time a bet is played in a linked machine, anywhere in the network, the cumulative jackpot grows and continues to build until it is won.
