A Long Beach man played with pennies and went home a millionaire at Pechanga, after striking a $1,061,225.26 Jackpot on an Indiana Jones slot machine at 10:48 a.m. this morning. The devoted Pechanga player knew he had hit a jackpot, but it took him a minute to realize just how large it was.
“I was kind of in a daze,” said the lucky player, who said he’s “going to save my mother’s house” with the winnings.
The Long Beach resident is the fourth big winner in just over two months at Pechanga — following two six figure wins in September and another in July of this year.
“Pechanga has more slots than any other casino in California and far more than any in Las Vegas,” said Pechanga VP of Slots Buddy Frank. “When someone wins a once-in-a-lifetime jackpot, it creates an excitement on the floor with both our guests and our Team Members.”
Pechanga Resort & Casino is located in the Inland Empire, in the Southern California Wine Country of Temecula Valley. The property offers a luxury hotel with a full-service spa and fine dining with 24-hours of gambling action. For more information visit their website at www.pechanga.com.
