Vietnam war vet scoops $500,000 progressive jackpot
A Vietnam war veteran has scooped a $500,000 progressive jackpot
at Presque Isle Downs & Casino. The fortunate veteran wagered the maximum amount, which is necessary to win the progressive jackpot. In October, the Erie-based casino awarded a $300,000 jackpot. This latest win is the biggest payout ever at Presque Isle Downs & Casino, according to a spokesperson. A local gambler was the holder of the previous record of $384,546.
The progressive jackpot was won on the day Presque Isle Downs & Casino honored war veterans. The casino treated vets to a free meal in addition to $10 in free slot play. “The jackpot win is a wonderful tribute to all war veterans and we are excited that one of them walked away with $500,000 in cash,” according to the spokesperson. A few days ago, we reported a British gambler who had won $1.143.291,28
in cash courtesy of an online slot game.
