Lloyd S. came to Alpine on April 23 to get his motorhome painted. When he discovered the shop was closed, he decided to make a quick detour to Viejas Casino. After just four spins on the popular Wheel of Fortune progressive slot machine, Lloyd hit it big with a jackpot totaling $744,553.18!

“It couldn’t have happened to a better person,” Lloyd joked. An avid fisherman who has fished for salmon in Alaska and piranha in the Amazon, Lloyd isn’t sure yet what he’ll do with his winnings. “It hasn’t really sunk in yet,” he said.
