James Reese got quite the return on a $20 bill. When he went to the Saratoga Casino and Raceway on May 29, his very first spin on the game yielded a $153,873 jackpot! But it wasn’t just beginners luck….
Reese won $5,475 more when he returned to the casino on Tuesday! The Wilton resident wasn’t surprised by his good fortune. “My astrology reading told me that I’d have multiple big hits related to money,” Reese said in a press release. Luckily for him that reading is for June so he has the whole month to continue to try his hand at winning big.
The lucky winner was playing Bally’s Black and White Quick Hit Progressive when he won the jackpot. Reese, 51, is considering an earlier retirement now that he is rolling in cash. He has also promised his niece that if she graduates from high school with honors, he will use some of his winnings to take her on a trip to Myrtle Beach this year. How generous; everyone should have an uncle like him!
Reese’s winnings amount to some of the largest pay outs by date, but he isn’t the only big winner. Earlier in May a Schenectady man won $64,000 at the casino!
