California man hits it big at Fantasy Springs

23 March 2010

INDIO, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Frank Paganelli from Joshua Tree, CA came to Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on Sunday morning, March 21st to watch his friends bowl at Fantasy Lanes. Frank says he loves to bowl, though had forgotten it could be boring watching others play. After spending a few minutes at the lanes at Fantasy Springs with his friends, Frank wandered into the casino. He walked around for a minute and sat down at a $0.50 IGT Wheel of Fortune slot machine.

"This one seemed to call to me," Frank says. "I had this weird feeling like I was going to win." Whether his positive attitude transcended the slot machine reels or whether Frank was just extremely lucky, he says he will be living a bit more comfortably now. After playing the machine that beckoned him for only a few minutes with $5.00 inserted, the Wheel of Fortune symbols lined up across the center of the screen and signaled that Frank won $272,121.95. "I couldn't believe it. I have never won anything remotely close to this amount of money before," says Frank. "It won't change who I am or what I do, but it sure is nice. I'll pay off my house in Joshua Tree." Frank is a luxury car parts wholesaler who assembles and disassembles autos, spends a lot of time at the gym and at the bowling alley near his house. He says he's extremely happy he let his friends talk him out of following his routine for the day and into coming to Fantasy Springs Resort Casino.
