26 November 2010

ATLANTIC CITY, New Jersey -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Thanksgiving has come early for one lucky New Jersey man as Harrah's Resort Atlantic City just announced that at 9:05 a.m. this morning he hit the Wheel of Fortune $5 denomination jackpot for $7,355,381.94 in the casino's Diamond Cove section. Ironically, Harrah's Resort is celebrating its 30th Anniversary.

"This is an unforgettable day at Harrah's Resort Atlantic City as we celebrate our 30th anniversary with the second largest jackpot payout in our casino and resort's history," said Jay Snowden, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Harrah's Resort and Showboat Atlantic City. "We have some of the most loyal customers in the world and it is even more rewarding that this jackpot winner has been a patron to our casino and part of the Harrah's family for 30 years."

The Harrah's Resort customer stated that he was here on the very day the casino opened it's doors. He jokingly referred to the casino as his "second home". The unassuming, middle-aged man, who asked to remain anonymous, said he was first going to buy a 1967 Camaro. "Tom" is not married and plans on sharing his new millionaire status with his extended family and friends.
