Imagine going for a drive from Portland out to the Pacific Ocean and you stop at a casino to play some penny slots
A Portland visitor to Lincoln City has a bit more spending money after visiting the Chinook Winds Casino Resort.
According to a release from Chinook Winds, the visitor won $1,585,455.05 at 12:09 a.m. on Saturday, April 6 while at the casino.
Resort operators said the slot floor lit up when the lucky guest, betting $3 on the penny option, hit the Grand Jackpot on a “MONOPOLY Hot Shot” Wide Area Progressive slot game.
The win was verified by Scientific Games. Wide Area Progressive means it’s a continually mounting jackpot is not only drawn from players at Chinook Winds Casino Resort, but from other casinos across the state as well.
The good news here is that Lincoln City doesn’t appear to be a city with many places open that late/early on a Saturday to blow your money. I think the play is get everything transferred to your bank and documented and then hit up a Waffle House or whatever 24-hour joint they have on the West coast.
