Nebraska Woman Wins $1.1m Slots JackpotApril 26, 2013 8:16 am
One lucky lady from Nebraska is celebrating her incredible good fortune after hitting a progressive slots jackpot worth a massive $1,154,123.
For the past 8 months, Sandra Marrs, from Merriman in Nebraska, has been travelling 18 miles twice a week to go bowling with a friend in nearby South Dakota. Firstly, however, they would drop in at the East Wind Casino in Martin, where they would play their favourite slots.
Tuesday then proved to be a memorable day for Sandra, when all her ships came in at the same time while playing the progressive Wicked Sexy Devil slot machine for three hours. The biggest slots payout she had previously collected was $2,500, but nothing had prepared her for the life-changing sum she was about to receive.
After hitting the jackpot, Sandra said she was in “total shock” and that she didn’t know exactly what was happening until the siren sounded and she realized what had happened. Mind you, she wasn’t the only one having a hard time believing their good luck and she said her husband wouldn’t believe her at first, and too, took some convincing down the phone.
As to what she now intends to do with her winnings, Sandra Marrs said she will “pay off bills, and plan a 30th Anniversary vacation with her husband.”
Not surprisingly, the lucky Nebraska lady had only good things to say about the East Wind Casino, from the great service to the attentive professional staff. She also said she intends to continue playing there, and as the latest millionaire slots winner explains: “They’re all very friendly and courteous. They have personal relationships and make everyone feel comfortable.”
