On Thursday, October 4, 2012, Rivers Casino awarded one lucky guest, Martha P. of Park Ridge, $25,000 in the Cash Knockout giveaway. Martha said she had a feeling that she was going to win when she entered the drawing. Martha was fitted with a boxing robe and gloves and punched through circle #32 on the Cash KO board, revealing a cash prize of $25,000! When asked why she selected circle #32 on the Cash KO board, Martha explained that she chose that circle because she was born in 1932.
