Gordon “Bud” Thompson says he was waiting for his wife of 60 years, Donna, after they’d been playing for a while on Valentine’s Day when he decided to try a few spins on a progressive machine…the 3-reel stepper “Freedom Rings.”
Commotion ensued, but Thompson says he didn’t realize what had happened right away…and was ecstatic when he learned he’d won a million dollars…$1.037, 375.93 to be exact.
A loyal customer of Prairie Winds for the past 18 years, Thompson says a family meeting will decide how they spend the month…adding that his wife, 3 sons, 12 grandchildren, and 17 great-grandchildren are extremely excited and amazed by his over a million dollar win.
