Last weekend a punter at the Chinook Winds tribal casino in Lincoln City, Oregon changed their life forever when they won a $1.585 million jackpot while playing the Monopoly Hot Shot penny slot.
The punter was playing the slot betting $3 per spin when he struck the jackpot, which is a progressive style called Wide Area, which aggregated the pool contributions from several casinos across the state. The punter hails from Portland, and will no doubt be feeling like Rich Uncle Pennybags as he decides how to spend his fortune.
Speaking about the win Chinook Winds Casino Resort Director William Robertson said, "It's always exciting to see a guest walk away a winner. At this amount it brings on an entirely different feel. Chinook Winds would like to congratulate the guest on their life-altering jackpot."
The Chinook Winds Casino Resort opened in 1995 and boasts more than 1,200 gambling machines. In addition to the casino, the destination boasts convention spaces and various restaurants for punters to eat at.
