    DH won Jackpot for $19,886.10 at Sycuan on Duo Fu Dua Cai on 88-cent bet today

    Hi, cant' believe it!!! My DH who doesn't care much about gambling--just goes to take me and seldom bets--won a Grand Progressive Jackpot $19,806.10 on Duo Fu Duo Cai (Just found out English name is 88 Fortunes). He was only betting 88-cents and the lid on the little pot on the screen shut. You then get to pick till you get 3 matching ones. He picked the 3 matching ones for the Grand Progressive Jackpot at Sycuan Casino; (After his hit the jackpot went back down to $10,000 so he was really lucky to get as much as he did). We have never had a handpay before as we are minimum betters. I was playing China Shore on the other side of the room but could see him sitting at that machine. All of a sudden I saw several people surround him and he was standing by the machine. Went down to find out what was going on and saw his $19,806.10K jackpot--he was acting very calm as if nothing had happened. Would have screamed and fainted if it was me. We asked them to pay us with a check and $500 in cash. They said the guy who signs checks was gone and wanted to give us cash. We said we were afraid to have that much cash so all of a sudden the check could be drawn. They also gave us 2 complimentary buffets and invited my husband to play in a jackpot winners slot tournament on Feb 22 and the winner gets $1000 freeplay so we will go. Never dreamed in a million years this would happen to him. He is so stoked he will probably play more in the future but he is very frugal and conservative so don't think he will change much.

    WOW and more WOW ! Congrats on that 19 thousand dollar handpay ! I think I would have done some screaming and dancing and then calmed down not to attract too much attention ;) Good plan getting a large check. I would hate to walk around with that much cash.

    Thanks everyone for the comments. Dewie, we are probably older than your parents. My DH is 70 and I'm 71. We never went to a Casino till I was 65 and he was 64. He mainly goes because he loves the buffets and is always pestering me to go home after we eat. Of course I like to play so we sometimes go round and round about it. Yes, it was a great Valentines gift for DH and I.
