She returned to Red Hawk Casino on Monday, April 20, to try her luck on the same slot machine and hit the Hyperlink® progressive jackpot for $1.8 million after inserting only $20.
Sandi said that she plans to donate a portion of her winnings to her local food bank, and will take a vacation to Florida to surprise her mother. When describing the moment that she won the life-changing jackpot, Sandi said, "I put the first $20 in the machine and then all of a sudden there it was. I stared at the machine, called my friend over, and then I started shaking. I have never had something like this happen. Red Hawk Casino is definitely my favorite."
"We are thrilled that Sandi's life-changing jackpot is the largest in Northern California's history," said Peter Fordham, General Manager of Red Hawk Casino. "With five players each having won jackpots in excess of $100,000 in the past four months, and a $1 million winner named during our Grand Opening Celebration, Red Hawk Casino is home to Northern California's biggest winners."
