A gambler from Florida found the golden ticket and struck gold with the “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” slot game.
It looks like Americans don’t need online gambling sites in the US to win big. Stephen S., a player from the state of Florida, has recently hit a progressive jackpot playing Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory at a casino in Biloxi, Mississippi.
According to local gambling news, the man won a prize worth $ 911,230.73 at the Palace Casino after playing the penny game for 15 to 20 minutes. He was playing the maximum bet, which was worth $4 a spin. The man had wagered about $40 when he hit the big jackpot.
Loyal customers gets his reward
In an interview with local newspapers, advertising and public relations manager Lisa Quirch told reporters that Stephen claimed he was earning points to get a free entry pass into a senior tournament at the casino.
The man added that he chose Palace Casino because it was a non-smoking venue and comes there regularly. Stephen had been a loyal customer for the past three years and he even knows all staff members by name.
The man told Quirch that he was planning to use his winnings to take his grandchildren to Disney World.
