Two of the largest Indian casinos in California gave away two huge Christmas Day jackpots over the weekend.
One woman at Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, California, won a $300,000 jackpot on a slot machine Christmas morning. The woman, who’s from just outside Los Angeles, declined to give her name. She won the jackpot on the 5 Times Pay 10 Times Pay With Quick Hit Progressive slot machine.
Meanwhile, just north of Sacramento at Thunder Valley Casino Resort, one lucky gambler won $134,087 in the casino’s progressive Thunder Strike Jackpot on Christmas. The gambler, Michelle, won the jackpot on the Red Hot Enchiladas slot machine.
Thunder Valley called the jackpot a “stocking stuffer” in its Twitter announcement. That could stuff a whole lot of stockings.
