Alabama Woman Wins Over $1 Million in the Million Degrees Progressive Slot
How would it feel to walk into a casino for the first time and walk out as a freshly-made millionaire thanks to one lucky spin? This is exactly what happened to a lady named Irene from Birmingham, Alabama, when she visited the Wind Creek Casino & Hotel in Wetumpka.
According to ABC3340.com, Irene won a breath-taking jackpot of $1,046,368 on June 18 when playing the Million Degrees Progressive slot-machine. Irene almost missed out on the big payday, as the group she was with was about to leave the casino.
Remarkably, this is the third time this jackpot hit for over $1 million in the last 50 days, and fifth seven-digit jackpot this casino has rewarded one of its lucky patrons at any of its slots. After the win, the group decided to stay another day at the resort to have some "proper celebrations."
When Irene was asked about what she would do with the money, she mentioned making sure her husband Donald was well taken care of. "He has taken care of me for all these years and now I'm going to take care of him," Irene told the reporters.
You would think a casino might be upset about giving away so many jackpots in a short period of time, but, in this case, the opposite is true. Cody Williamson, Property Manager at Wind Creek Casino & Hotel Wetumpka was more than excited for Irene when stating, "We love to celebrate with our guests, our family, when they win big! It is even better when they become instant Millionaires! Congratulations Irene."
We are all on the edges of our seats to see if the casino can award a sixth player a life-changing jackpot within two months. If you have visited the casino, let us know your experiences, and best of luck becoming the next instant millionaire.
