San Francisco Plumber Turns on a Faucet Full of Winnings

Winner Hits a Gusher—a $619,538.24 Wheel of Fortune® MegaJackpot® at Cache Creek Casino Resort

(Brooks, Calif. – October 4, 2009) – San Franciscan Mark Biggins took his wife Omozole to Cache Creek Saturday because she wanted to “get out of the house.” That simple desire paid off big time for the lucky couple when Mark won a $619,538.24 MegaJackpot® on a Wheel of Fortune® dollar slot machine.

The 44 year-old plumber said he chose to play Wheel of Fortune® because his mother likes to play it. He went up to the “first one I saw when I walked in” to the casino.

The winner said he’ll use his winning to pay his bills and expand his plumbing business.

“We are thrilled to have another MegaJackpot® here at Cache Creek Casino Resort,” said Cean Burgeson, Communication Manager at Cache Creek. “We offer our hearty congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Biggins and wish them the best.”
