Nebraska Man Claims $1M Jackpot At SD Casino



Bookmark and Share

A Nebraska man has claimed a $1 million jackpot at Pine Ridge's Prairie Wind Casino.
 
Gordon "Bud" Thompson of Alliance, Neb., hit the jackpot on Valentine's Day while at the casino with his wife of 60 years. Wife Donna was the one playing, but Thompson decided to try a few spins on a nearby Freedom Rings machine as he waited.
 
He says that he didn't realize he'd won at first.
 
Thompson says a family meeting will determine "the outcome of the funds."
