It started out as a routine Saturday night for one area man. But that would
soon change for Edward Baca, who ended the evening as a big winner at Ohkay
Hotel Casino. He walked away with a smile on his face, and big plans for the
$5,000 in his pocket this past weekend.
Baca, of Las Vegas, NM, placed a $10 main bet and a $5 side bet on "Lady Luck" Blackjack early Saturday evening, June 1st. He was dealt two Queens of Hearts and the dealer got a Blackjack. With that exact card combination, Baca received a 1,000 to 1 payout, and winnings of $5,000.
"This is exactly the kind of gaming excitement that makes our guests return again and again," said Ohkay Hotel Casino's Director of Gaming, Robert Gooch. "We congratulate Mr. Baca on his huge win."
Baca is a frequent guest at Ohkay Hotel Casino, and says his favorite games can keep him entertained for hours.
"I have always enjoyed time spent here because the casino is energetic and people are friendly," Baca said. "Now that I'm a winner, I plan to spend more time here and hope that Lady Luck stays on my side. I hope my good fortune convinces other people to visit Ohkay Hotel Casino. It's the best fun in town."
