Wheel of Fortune slot winner attributes his luck to guidance from beyond

16 April 2012

COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (PRESS RELEASE) -– When a retired investment advisor from Palm Beach won $260,675 on April 11 at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek - Coconut Creek, FL playing the Wheel of Fortune slot machine, his first thought was that his deceased “lady friend” and older brother were “watching over” him.

He believes that his lady friend, Betty, and brother, Gene, whoM he called “my main man in life,” were guiding his luck from the beyond.

“I let out a big yell, which isn’t like me, and went to the 1st Street Deli with (casino host) Brian Phillips and had a nice big corned beef sandwich,” to celebrate, said Kenneth M.

Though he’s played regularly at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek for about two years and hitting smaller jackpots “all the time,” he said, “I’ve never won anything this big; it was like a dream to me.” He was playing for a few hours and with the maximum bet of $100 a push, he suddenly hit the jackpot on the extremely popular Wheel of Fortune game, manufactured by International Game Technology (IGT).

Wheel of Fortune is wide-area progressive machine, which means it’s linked to machines at other Native American casinos across the country. The jackpot, tallied at the top of each machine, accumulates throughout the network until it’s won.

Originally from Texas, the lucky winner has lived in Florida for 25 years, and although he mostly plays the slots he said he sometimes dabbles in blackjack and lately has become a big baccarat fan. Both card games are offered in South Florida exclusively by Seminole casinos.

So what does a former investment advisor do with a quarter of a million dollars? “Put it in the bank and invest in the stock market.”
