106-year-old woman hits jackpot at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino

30 August 2023

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Serafina “Sarah” Papia Peterson celebrated her birthday on Wednesday, 23 August like she has done for years, surrounded by her family and a trip to Potawatomi Hotel & Casino. But this year Sarah got an extra gift: she won a $1,000 jackpot.

That jackpot just doubled. Sarah was invited back to Potawatomi Casino to receive another $1,000 from CEO Dominic Ortiz. “We’ve welcomed Sarah every year for her birthday and are grateful that she and her family celebrate with us,” said Ortiz. “We were all elated when we heard about her big win and wanted to make her 106th birthday even more special.”

“I told my niece I thought I was going to win today, but never thought I’d receive a surprise like this,” Peterson said. Oriz presented Peterson with $1,000 in cash, sweatshirt from Cream City Coffee and a specially made birthday cake celebrating her 106 years.
