The majority of us don’t just visit destination casinos to play the games. We go with friends to enjoy the social atmosphere, we might take in a live show or comedy act, or dine in one of the resort’s exclusive restaurants or buffets. But still, the gambling experience is rated high on our list of entertainment factors, not just because they are exciting, but because we have underlying hopes of landing a life-altering slots jackpot.
It’s not that we’re expecting to win some ludicrous amount of money, but deep down we know that someone is destined to hit that mighty progressive. Someone will buy a new house or pay off their mortgage, put a new car in the garage and set aside enough money for their kids or grandkids college education.
If we’re going to spend a few 20’s spinning the reels anyway, there’s no good reason why we shouldn’t have the same chance of coming out a lot richer than the next guy. No, we don’t expect it to happen, but there’s no harm in dreaming…
Dream Come True for Upper Marlboro Woman
That dream came true last week for a woman from Upper Marlboro, MD by the name of ‘Rosalyn F‘. She lit up the screen with a winning combination – on the Fourth of July, no less – for a massive slots jackpot valued at $423,340.37 at Maryland Live! Casino in Hanover.
It wasn’t just a memorable event for Ms. Rosalyn and the casino staff on duty that night. Her exorbitant win was a milestone for the Maryland casino, marking the largest slots jackpot ever awarded at the location in its four year history.
According to Ashley Durkin-Rixey, a spokeswoman for the casino, Rosalyn F. was playing one of Maryland Live!’s “MegaHits” slot machines when the enormous jackpot was struck. After just 20 minutes of gameplay, a $3 bet awarded the Upper Marlboro woman the prize of a lifetime.
Maryland Live! officials were so proud to be a part of the momentous occasion that they quickly posted the following message (along with this picture, right) on the casino’s Facebook page:
“Wow, that’s what we call a #LuckyAtLIVE win! Congrats to Rosalyn F. for winning the BIGGEST jackpot in Maryland Live! history worth $423,340.37 on a Mega Hits slot machine!”
More Slots Jackpot Winners at Maryland Live!
Following Rosalyn’s record win on July 4, Maryland Live! continued congratulating jackpot winners throughout the week. Just two days later, on July 6, it was announced that the “The Giant Jackpot has hit!”
Congratulations went out to Arthur B. for scooping a hefty prize of $98,589.79 while playing the Rebel Wild slot machine; just one of the many slots networked to the casino’s famous ‘Giant Jackpots‘ progressive, which is guaranteed to strike somewhere between $50k and $100k. Three days after that, Joyce W. captured a $30k slots jackpot while playing Triple Diamond Strike.
