A New Jersey man won $194,000 on his first slot spin at Play Sugar House after signing up for an account when he was bored last week.
Anibal Lopes, a 33 year old man living in New Jersey said that he was bored so he signed up for an account with Play Sugar House on his phone. The punter chose Net Ent's Divine Fortune slot and put in his first spin. That spin triggered the game's progressive jackpot for the first time since last September, awarding Anibal a whopping $194,000 cash prize.
Commenting on his big win Lopes said, "I thought, 'This is not happening. I couldn't believe I won that much money. I told my wife: 'I don't feel well. My legs are shaking.' She said, 'We need to get you to the emergency room.' I told her, 'No, I'm not sick; I just won close to $194,000!'"
Lopes said that he plans to pay down bills, repair his house, and set up a savings account with his winnings.
The Play Sugar House is connected to the Golden Nugget.
