LINCOLN, Calif. -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Mely Silva, of Sunnyvale, Calif., became $251,360 richer Sunday after hitting the Pai Gow 7 Card Progressive Jackpot for $203,585 and winning over $47,775 on the fortune bet at Thunder Valley Casino Resort.
Silva had been playing for five hours at Thunder Valley before hitting the Pai Gow Progressive Jackpot. Amazed, she says she plans to pay off debt with her winnings. Silva said she enjoys visiting Thunder Valley due in part to the property's "friendly Team Members."
Also this week, one lucky guest won $108,166 when the Wheel of Fortune machine he was playing on hit the jackpot at Thunder Valley.
"The Thunder Valley Team is delighted to congratulate our newest winners," said Dawn Clayton, general manager at Thunder Valley Casino Resort. "There is a reason that Thunder Valley is known as the Jackpot Capitol of California."
In the last year, Thunder Valley has given away over $100 million in jackpots to its loyal patrons.
