South Mississippi Casino Hands Three Jackpots in One Day

“It was just like pop, pop, pop, all day,” the casino’s director of gaming operations said

They say that lightning doesn’t strike twice but it seems like it has struck three times for visitors of the Scarlet Pearl Casino in D’Iberville. As it turns out, three separate guests won jackpot prizes in a single day.

According to Angela Black, the property’s director of gaming operations, the casino couldn’t stop providing prizes all day long. The first of them was a win of almost $50,000 hit by a player from Texas. The Austin man, Black noted, won $49,141.30 playing Mighty Cash in the casino’s high limits area, the Orchid Room.

The director of operations also said that the player in question had only wagered $1.80 when he hit the jackpot, making this win a “great return” of investment.

As mentioned, the Texan was not the only lucky casino visitor that day. Soon after, a woman from Gulfport, Mississippi, won a stellar $86,038.09 jackpot playing on a Lock it Link machine. According to the casino, the woman was also playing in the property’s famous Orchid Room.

Finally, a man from Iuka, Mississippi, won a mouth-watering $99,800 playing The Triple Blazing 7s Double game. What’s truly special about this latest win, however, is not the size but the fact that there were no taxes.

The final jackpot prize for the day was won from a $100 wager. The man had spun a total of three times before earning a whopping 100 free spins. According to Black, everyone at the casino was excited for the player and had gathered to watch him fire up the reels.

More US Players Win Big

Winning a jackpot can be life-changing. As the USA’s gambling and lottery industries grow, more and more players win amazing prizes. In Kentucky, for example, a father and son duo just won a $1 million prize after buying a scratch-off ticket.

A player from Seattle, on the other hand, decided to ditch his usual Powerball ticket in favor of a $30 Chrome Scratch ticket, only to turn it into a $2 million payday.

Unfortunately, sometimes there can be hurdles along the way. A Blackjack jackpot winner from Michigan, for example, was denied her winnings because of claims that she was “trespassing.” As it turned out, a misunderstanding from 2015 had led to her ban but the casino had never notified her. In the end, the woman decided to sue the gambling property over the withheld prize.
