California casino sees dozens of major jackpot wins

3 August 2010

INDIO, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- The casino floor at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino heated up in July thanks to dozens of big jackpots won by lucky players. July winners who opted to take photos to document their win took home nearly $250,000 in jackpot payouts. The casino gave away $2.25 million more in winnings to thousands of guests. Many Fantasy Springs players know it as a place they feel luck and win.

Here are the stories of a few of July's big winners at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino.

Blackjack is Jaime E.'s favorite casino game. He spent the evening on July 31st playing that game and when he saw that Fantasy Springs 21 games offered the chance to make an additional bet that would give him the chance to win a progressive jackpot, Jaime took the opportunity. He placed his main bet, plus a $1 bonus bet in case he got the hand that won the progressive. Jaime's dealer flipped over his cards, showing a King and Queen of spades. Jaime showed his cards – a King and Queen of spades, just like the dealer. That meant he won the entire progressive amount, all because he had bet an extra dollar. Jaime pocketed $27,900 that lucky night.

David D. drove north about 45 minutes to Fantasy Springs from Imperial, CA because his luck has followed him into the Indio casino once before. David found a $5.00 Triple 7 Red Hot slot machine he liked and began playing. In a matter of only three minutes with about $60 in the machine, the three spinning reels all landed on Triple Red Hot symbols across the center of the screen. David had won $20,000. Three months prior to this win, David won $21,600 on a different Fantasy Springs slot machine.

Andrea S. of Indio, CA sat down at one of the oversized $0.01 Power Strike slot during her visit to Fantasy Springs in July. She said she was just having fun and had played about $300 when all of a sudden, the lightning bolt on the machine sounded. Andrea scored the correct combination of symbols on the video reel machine to pay her $22,500.

Robert H. from Palm Desert said "Thank God!" after winning his $26,359 jackpot on a $1.00 Blazing 7s slot machine. Blazing 7s is his favorite slot machine and admittedly now, Fantasy Springs is his favorite casino. Robert said he plans to use his jackpot to pay off some of his house.
