PLAYER WINS $260,767 TO SET NEW JACKPOT RECORD AT RIVERS CASINO

Guest Wins Big on Quick Hit Platinum Slot

 PITTSBURGH June 30, 2014 — Another Rivers Casino guest is walking away with six-figures worth of cash. Earlier today, a lucky player won big while playing one of the casino’s 2,900 slot machines, taking home $260,767 in cash.

 This $260,767 jackpot is now the largest in Rivers Casino history—surpassing the previous record by more than $77,000. The winner, who preferred to remain anonymous, won the jackpot while playing a $1 Quick Hit Platinum slot machine.

 “We’ve had several big winners recently, but it’s always exciting to set a new record,” said Bud Green, Rivers Casino assistant general manager. “Our team enjoys celebrating with guests when we’re able to payout a big jackpot. Congrats to our latest winner!”

 This record-breaking jackpot is close on the heels of another big win from April 2014. That guest, also playing on a $1 Quick Hit Platinum machine, was the lucky winner of $182,966.

Since the casino opened in August 2009, Rivers has awarded more than $406 million in jackpots to players. A jackpot is defined as a win of $1,200 or more.
