Oklahoma’s Choctaw Casino & Resort – Durant presented a Texas grandmother with a life-changing $1M over the weekend.
Rosa Guia of Lancaster had a hard time believing she was the fortunate winner.
“I still can’t believe it. I can’t believe it because of how much it is. I know it’s real because I won $1 million tonight,” Guia was quoted by Texas’s Focus Daily News.
I’m not sure what I am going to do with the money, but I have four children and 12 grandchildren. I think I will take them somewhere,” she said.
This is not Guia’s first win at the gaming property. She previously won $41,000 in 2017.
“I love it here because I do win, and I can double my money,” she added.
Guia frequently visits the gaming property, often accompanied by her family, for more than a decade. It is a great way for her to relax.
According to the Focus Daily News, she has worked at an embroidery graphics company for the past 23 years.
The tribal casino’s $6.6 Million Summer Giveaway promotion includes the second $1 million grand prize drawing of the season. A third drawing is scheduled for later this season.
The fortunate winners consider these jackpots to be life-changing.
“Today, we made a second rewards club member an instant millionaire as part of our 3 Months. 3 Millionaires giveaway,” Jeff Penz, senior director of gaming and hospitality at Choctaw Casino & Resort – Durant, said in a statement released on Sunday.
Nothing compares to creating these life-changing moments for our guests, and we’re looking forward to doing it one more time.”
