Detroit, MI (PRWEB) March 11, 2013
When MotorCity Casino Hotel Slot Manager Nick Collias walked into work on the morning of March 6, it started out like just another day at the office. That feeling changed shortly after 11am.
“The floor was starting to get busy, then all of a sudden, bells started going off and I heard a group of people cheering. I went over to see what was going on, and there were people celebrating around a man sitting in front of a Wheel of Fortune machine.”
The casino patron in the chair had just won the IGT Wheel of Fortune Wide Area Progressive jackpot for $615,024.32.
“Apparently, as the patron and his wife were getting ready to leave the casino, she told him to play his favorite machine one more time. He put the money in and hit the jackpot. There are jackpot winners every day on the floor, but It’s not every day that a jackpot that big hits,” said Collias. “It was awesome. I’m glad I got to see it.”
