Veteran Wins $500,000 Jackpot at Presque Isle Downs & Casino
Erie, PA – The casino celebrated Veterans Day on Sunday with a free buffet and $10 in slot play. But, one lucky veteran walked away with something much more. On Sunday, November 11, 2012 a Vietnam War Vet walked away with $500,000 with his progressive jackpot win. The $500,000 jackpot is the largest in Presque Isle Downs & Casino’s history. This progressive jackpot follows a $300,000 win last month.
The largest jackpot previously won at Presque Isle Downs & Casino was $384,546 by a winner from Erie, Pennsylvania.
“What a way to honor our Vets! We couldn’t be happier that a true American hero won the $500,000 on Veterans Day”, stated Mike Tamburelli, Vice President & General Manager of Presque Isle Downs & Casino.
In order to win the progressive amount shown, the player must be playing the “Max Bet” feature on the slot machines.
