(PRESS RELEASE) -- One player definitely had the luck of the Irish on her side as she played slots this St. Patrick’s Day at Talking Stick Resort. That luck became evident as she won $845,006.79 playing Wheel of Fortune Double Diamond in the early morning hours of March 17.
“This is truly a remarkable moment as the jackpot almost topped the $1 million mark,” said Ramon Martinez, director of public relations for Talking Stick Resort. “We’re always rooting for the big win here at Talking Stick Resort and when it happens, everyone gets excited.”
The female winner wished to conceal her identity. However, her lucrative jackpot has solidified her as the second woman to play a version of the television-themed slot machine and win a large prize this month. Marianne Bort of Phoenix tried her luck with the Wheel of Fortune Double 3x4x5x Times Pay on March 1 and won more than $400,000.
With more than 240,000 square feet dedicated to gaming, Talking Stick Resort is home to 700 multi-denominational slots. Games include Triple Trouble, Cherry Chance, Winner Winner Chicken Dinner, Catch the Money and Dante’s Diamond.
