Two Million Dollar Winners within 7 Months

CHOCTAW, Miss. (March 29, 2013) – Pearl River Resort is pleased to announce that Elnora G. of Milwaukee, Wisconsin won $1,159,366.27 while playing the Wizard of Oz slot machine on March 28 at Silver Star Hotel & Casino. She recently celebrated her birthday on March 22nd and decided to take a trip with her family to Choctaw, Mississippi. “The casino had sent me a letter for a free two night stay and I’m glad I came,” recalled Elnora. When her slot machine sounded, the lucky jackpot winner exclaimed, “I couldn't believe it. The guy next to me said, ‘You hit the progressive.’ Never in my life have I won money like this!”

Another lucky winner was also crowned a million dollar winner in a resort promotion only seven months ago. An Alabama native won $1,000,000 in the Fish for a Million Promotion on August 18, 2012 at the Silver Star Retail Promenade. Guests were chosen every hour to pull three envelopes with prize amounts ranging from $200 to $1,000 (represented by a Fish for a Million logo). Each winner could increase his winnings by fishing for multiplier logos in the pond. The Alabama resident was the first player to pull three Fish for Million logos, earning the grand prize of $1,000,000!

“We are certainly thrilled for our million dollar winners,” stated Holly Gagnon, President & CEO of Pearl River Resort, “It gives us great pleasure to see each of our guests enjoying themselves and winning such lucrative jackpots. Congratulations to our newest millionaire!”
