Mystic Lake Casino player wins €594.794 progressive jackpot
A Mystic Lake Casino player hit the €594.794 progressive jackpot. Dick Warwick scooped the massive jackpot while playing the Wild Cherry slot
game. The 60-year old housing inspector wagered €31 at the casino in Prior Lake. Three cherry symbols in a row appeared on the wheels.
Warwick commented: “I couldn’t believe that I had won the jackpot. It seemed like a dream. I still don’t realize how much I have won.” His disbelief is a normal reaction after such a massive jackpot
. It was even harder to convince his relatives and friends. His wife Martha reacted by saying: “This can’t be reality, it must be a bad joke.” When he told the news to a friend, he replied: “No, you didn’t hit that jackpot, it’s impossible that somebody wins such a massive prize.”

He will also support his children who go to college. Additionally, he noted that he wants to donate to charity. Dick Warwick stated: “I would like to make a difference and go to New Orleans to help the Gulf oil spill cleanup workers.”
