Bakersfield Man Hits $10,000.00 Jackpot

March 18, 2011

(Eagle Mountain Casino, Porterville, Ca.)  The luck of the Irish was alive and well at Eagle Mountain Casino on Saint Patrick’s Day as James Avera from Bakersfield Ca. hit the largest jackpot of his life taking home a cool $10,000.00.

“I had gotten down playing other machines, made some back when I decided to play the Red White & Blue Deluxe machine. I had not been playing it that long when on a max bet the Three Wilds lined up and the bells started ringing. I was kind of in disbelief and I thought I had only won $2,000.00, but when the slot attendant came over he informed me that I had hit the $10,000.00 jackpot,” said James of his good fortune. “I was completely shocked and felt very blessed.”

“James must have had a four leaf clover in his pockets because while he was waiting to get paid his 10 grand, he hit a $2,500.00 jackpot on the slot machine next to the Red White & Blue machine.” said Jim Valencia, Public Relations Coordinator at Eagle Mountain Casino.

“I plan on paying off some bills with my winnings and will come back to EMC because I know there are more winners at EMC,” said James.  

Eagle Mountain Casino is a full service entertainment casino and is owned and operated by the Tule River Tribe. It is a short drive from Bakersfield or Visalia, Ca.
