Hot slots pay out a cool $874,000 as two large jackpots hit Agua Caliente Casino

2 May 2007

RANCHO MIRAGE, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Hot weather combined with a power outage is what brought a Desert Hot Springs couple to Agua Caliente Casino, where they won $782,127.06 in the first of two big jackpots at the casino over the weekend.

It happened at 2:45pm Saturday, while Carol was buying ice cream at the casino food court. Lupe had signed up for a "Paradise Rewards Card" intending to have a chance at winning the random "Paradise Jackpot". Instead, he hit it big on the $0.25 Wheel of Fortune multi-win, a wide area progressive slot machine.

"It must have been fate," Carol said. "We were meant to be here today." The couple is from Burlington, Washington and said they would have been back in Washington, had they not purchased their new home.

Agua Caliente Casino also treated the couple to an air conditioned hotel room for the night to celebrate their big win!

Some 24 hours later, a man from Reno, Nevada hit Agua Caliente Casino's Paradise Jackpot. He won $92,820.89 on a slot spin that would have been worthless, had he not been playing with his Paradise Rewards Card. 332 other guests who had their card in when the jackpot hit also won $50.

Seven Paradise Jackpots worth more than half-a-million dollars have been awarded since the promotion began just two months ago. The promotion is a permanent addition to Spa Resort Casino in Palm Springs and Agua Caliente Casino in Rancho Mirage.

Agua Caliente Casino is located at 32-250 Bob Hope Drive in Rancho Mirage, California; home to 1,000 slots, 49 table games, daily Bingo and an 11-table poker room voted "Best in the Valley" in a 2007 readers' poll.
