VALLEY CENTER, Calif. (KGTV) — A Valley View Casino visitor recently hit the jackpot, walking away with nearly $200,000 from a slot machine.
A guest, identified as Jason E., was playing the Wheel Of Fortune Triple Red 7’s slot machine when he hit the progressive jackpot to win $185,216.42 on Feb. 15.
Jason says the win came less than five minutes after he sat down at the machine.
“When I realized I won, I was shocked. I didn’t know how I won or how much, but first I thank the Lord above,” said Jason. “I love coming to Valley View, my brother brings me here every time I’m in town, which I really enjoy.”
The win made even luckier when you break down slot machines odds.
According to Casino.org, slot machines have one of the highest house edges in a casino, making it more challenging for a player to hit a jackpot, since every spin is an independent random number generation from the last.
