Lucky Kenmore, N.Y. Player Wins $712,784 Jackpot at Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel

It was a Mother’s Day miracle at Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel this past weekend. A player from Western New York won a progressive jackpot of $712,784 on Sunday, May 11 on an International Game Technology (IGT) MegaJackpots® Wheel of Fortune® Double Diamond® dollar slot machine. The lucky pull occurred at 5:29 p.m. just outside STIR, the casino’s new high-energy feature bar and lounge.


The player, identified as Frank C. of Kenmore, N.Y., placed a maximum bet of $3 and hit three Wheel of Fortune symbols on the payout line. The large progressive amount is linked to games at multiple Native American-owned casinos in the Northeast region.


“My wife and I went out to lunch for Mother’s Day, and she wanted to stop at the casino afterwards,” Frank said. “In between, we visited my parents at the cemetery. I placed their wedding photo on top of their tombstone, gave it a light rub, and asked my mother for a little bit of luck at the casino. I felt calm and relaxed the rest of the day, even as that amazing jackpot hit.”


Frank’s initial plans for the winnings are to create a college fund for his grandchildren. He and his wife enjoy travelling to Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel a few times each month and said they are particularly pleased with the recent renovations on the main gaming floor.
