August 5 will be the day that one visitor to the Sacramento-area casino will remember as long as he lives. The fortunate guest visited Thunder Valley Casino Resort last Friday and left town more than $1.5 million richer than when he arrived. The exact amount of the progressive jackpot paid out by the casino was $1,538,738.97.
Thunder Valley Casino Resort Pays Out Enormous Jackpot
This week, the casino spokesperson revealed that the lucky winner of the mind-boggling jackpot is Roberto Arcueno. The lady luck smiled on Arcueno while he was playing one of the most popular slot machines at the casino, Dancing Drums Explosion. The machine that delivered this life-changing amount requires a credit entry to play worth only one cent. This makes this incredible win even more amazing, as a stroke of luck of that kind doesn’t happen very often. It’s even hard to comprehend how Mr. Arcueno must have felt once he realized how much money he had won.
The General Manager of Thunder Valley Casino Resort, Dawn Clayton, issued a statement congratulating the lucky player. He noted how happy everyone at the casino in California is for Roberto Acrueno. In addition, they were thrilled that one of their Platinum guests has won such a valuable jackpot. Clayton went on to explain that every slot machine in the casino is connected and playing on each of them puts players into a position to win the Thunder Strike Jackpot. The fun thing is that the jackpot can strike at any time. The longer the casino goes without a win, the bigger the reward will be. Finally, the casino’s General Manager invited players to visit Thunder Valley and test their luck as you never know when the jackpot will hit.
According to the casino, Friday’s jackpot is just one of many huge rewards they pay out to slot machine players every month.
