In an exciting turn of events, the Choctaw Casino & Resort in Durant, Oklahoma, has bestowed a life-altering sum of $1 million upon Rosa Guia, a grandmother of twelve from Lancaster, Texas.
A Stunned Millionaire
Rosa Guia, a regular patron of the Choctaw Casino, could hardly believe her luck as she emerged as the fortunate winner. “I still can’t believe it. I know it’s real because I won $1 million tonight,” she told Texas’s Focus Daily News. Guia is no stranger to winning at this establishment, having pocketed $41,000 back in 2017.
Guia, who has been a loyal customer of the casino for over a decade, expressed her love for the place and the excitement it offers. She often visits the gaming property on weekends to enjoy the live roulette and their live casino, sometimes accompanied by her family, finding it a relaxing way to unwind from her work at an embroidery graphics company.
As she comes to terms with her newfound fortune, Guia is considering what to do with the money. Her initial thoughts are centered around treating her four children and twelve grandchildren.
Second Million-Dollar Payout of the Summer
This weekend’s payout marks the second $1 million grand prize awarded by the tribal casino this summer, as part of its $6.6 Million Summer Giveaway promotion. A third drawing is set for later this season, promising another lucky player the chance to become an instant millionaire.
Jeff Penz, senior director of gaming and hospitality at Choctaw Casino & Resort – Durant, expressed his excitement at creating these life-changing moments for their guests, and eagerly awaits the opportunity to do it once more.
The Choctaw Casino & Resort, operated by the Choctaw Nation, boasts 7,400 slots, more than 100 table games, and a poker room, providing ample opportunities for winning big.
