Indiana Woman strikes it rich at Fitz Casino & Hotel, Tunica

3 July 2013

TUNICA, Mississippi -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- A 74-year-old woman from West Baden, Indiana has more than 8 million new reasons to smile.

On Friday, June 28, Brunhilde C. hit the jackpot of a lifetime at the Fitz Casino in Tunica, Mississippi. Brunhilde, a frequent Fitz patron, won a jackpot worth $8,316,562.59 as she played a 25-cent statewide progressive Wheel of Fortune machine.

Brunhilde, who is retired, was stunned when she hit the jackpot. "At first, I thought 'Oh, I think I won! Did I win?'"
The new multi-millionaire plans to use some of her winnings on college tuition for her grandchildren. She'd also like a new kitchen.

"The Fitz' motto is 'Luck Lives Here,'" said Rick Casagrande, Executive Director of Marketing for Fitz Casino & Hotel. "Brunhilde is the latest example, an 8 million dollar example, that it certainly does!"
This is among the largest MegaJackpots to be won in the state of Mississippi.
