Actor Danny ”Machete” Trejo has appeared in over 300 films and television series such as Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Machete, Breaking Bad, and Sons of Anarchy, but he has played no better role than the one he recently did at Soboba Casino where he awarded local player Angelica Viera of Riverside a new Chevy Silverado!

Danny Trejo hands over the keys to Chevy Silverado grand prize winner Angelica Viera!

On March 25th at the casino, the 2017 Chevy Silverado was the grand prize and of the casino’s month long “Take on Trejo” promotion. In addition to winning cash, free slot play and the truck, Club Soboba Members were also able to come in to meet the action star in person, take a picture with him, and get an autograph.

Danny Trejo had the honor of calling the grand prize winner of the 2017 Silverado at 9 PM, as the crowd gathered he announced; “and the grand prize winner is…… Danny Trejo!” the crowd chuckled as he continued; “I’m joking!” Trejo then said; “the grand prize winner is… Angelica Viera!”

Angelica and her husband made their way to Soboba Casino’s promotional area, appropriately named “The Winner’s Circle”, and there “Machete” happily handed over the keys, congratulating the lucky winner in Spanish.

According to Viera, “We were enjoying our food at the Soboba café when I saw my name come across the big screen!” she continued “We were so excited I became very nervous! We ran over so quickly we totally forgot about our dinner. This is truly a blessing!”

“Anytime one of our local guests wins the grand-finale, we are simply thrilled for them,” said Michael J. Broderick, Director of Marketing at Soboba Casino “Viera and her husband have told us that they feel lucky to have won the Silverado here at Soboba, but we are the lucky ones. Lucky to have them!”
