Hollywood, Florida (PRWEB) June 20, 2012
Two local winners, recently hit it big at Seminole Casino Hollywood marking the start of a sizzling summer of fun. Olivia Johnson William of Hollywood won a new Lexus while C. Young of Miami netted a $123,415 slots jackpot.
After a few hours of playing the Diamond Lotto slots and earning electronic entries, 56-year-old Hollywood resident Olivia Johnson William almost called it a day. Down $100, she left the casino to secure more funds and returned to hear her name being called out to participate in the Lexus drawing. At 9:30 p.m., she selected the winning envelope containing the new Lexus.
“I was ecstatic and overwhelmed with joy…I couldn’t breathe,” exclaimed William. “I thought that I must be blessed. Out of all of the millions of people, I was picked. This win comes right after my son passed away, two days after I retired and two days before my birthday. That’s 2-2-2. I thank god, my family and my beautiful son – my true guardian angel – for blessing me with good fortune. I even won another $500 right after the car award.”
Post win, William excitedly contacted 35 family members and treated them to a buffet dinner, adding, “Nothing is complete without the love of family – we need to stay together. I’ll be taking them whitewater rafting and on a Bahamas cruise later this year.”
This is William’s third big win at Seminole Casino Hollywood this year; she also won approximately $1,200 on Mother’s Day.
“Seminole Casino is lucky. That’s for sure. I wouldn’t play anyplace else,” Williams said.
Approximately 12 hours later the next day at 9:38 a.m., C. Young of Miami hit a $123,415 jackpot on a $10 bet ($10 across one board) on Bally’s Super Touch Lotto quarter slot.
“It’s these remarkable stories of ordinary people winning extraordinary life-changing prizes and jackpots that make us smile,” said Michael J. Broderick, director of marketing and promotions for Seminole Casino Hollywood. “Everyone has a unique story to tell and it’s certainly humbling to witness how we play a part in bringing friends and family together.”
