A self employed grandfather has won $184,060 playing Pyramid Plunder at Win A Day Casino.
The player, whose name is Joe H., wagered $5 on the spin that gave him the big payday.
“I just had a feeling, when I sat down to play on Monday. I had a hunch it was going to be a good day,” he said. “I often just wager five or ten cents a line so I can keep playing longer. But when I’m feeling a little bit lucky like that I often bet a little more. So I had $1 bet on ten lines when up came all those Pharoahs!” said Joe H.
Joe H. is a grandfather and says that he plans to pay off debt, continue gambling and splurge on his grandchildren at Christmas. “It’s going to be hard not to splurge on my kids and grandkids this Christmas, that’s for sure,” he said. “But I think even once a few bills are paid, and I’ve put some away for my grandchildren’s college fund, I’ll still be able to afford to be generous.”
Pyramid Plunder launched on Win A Day last November. The slot is a 25 pay line giving players three ways to win bonus money: a scarab beetle, a mummy, and a Chamber of Treasures that awards cash and free spins.
