Guest Turns Nickel Into $57,000

Buffington Harbor, Ind., 1/18/01  -  It was quite an exciting night for a very lucky Majestic Star Casino guest. On Wednesday, January 17th, Donna Walters hit it big on one of the casino's nickel slot machines. Jockey Pay, a progressive jackpot game, paid out over $57,000 to Westville resident Donna Walters.

"This jackpot has been building for a while and we've been expecting it to hit," said Mark Bennett, Director of Slots. "Progressive games are very popular because the jackpots become so large. It's always exciting when one of our guests wins a big payout like this."

The casino's other progressive jackpots are also climbing high:

10x Pay........................$98,000
10x Pay........................$88,900
Caribbean Stud Poker......$116,500

Walters had been playing the machines for about an hour and a half when the winning combination appeared on her screen. When asked what she would do with her winnings, Walters simply replied "Spend it!".
