30 March 2009

COACHELLA, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- As if he were the Wonderful Wizard of Oz himself, a La Quinta man magically turned pennies into more than a million dollars last night playing at Spotlight 29 Casino. The retired man won $1,086,636.60 playing a Wizard of Oz penny slot machine, becoming the biggest winner in Spotlight 29 Casino history, and one of the biggest winners since casinos came to the desert.

He had only played for about 30 minutes when he turned to his wife and said, "Just one more spin." Then he became an instant millionaire. Reacting to his big win, the frequent Spotlight 29 player said, "I couldn't believe it! I love to play at Spotlight 29 Casino, and we were literally just turning to leave, when I told my wife I wanted just one more spin. This is amazing!"

He said he plans to invest the money for his children and grandchildren.
