$250K slots jackpot hits at northern Nevada casino

What’s in a name? For one northern Nevada casino guest, it was foreshadowing.

Genene Proffitt of Sparks became the first $250,000 winner of Legends Bay Casino’s Mega Wheel promotion, according to a release from the Reno/Sparks casino.

The winning symbols lined up Feb. 18. Casino guest members can qualify to spin through playing slots, video poker or table games for an entry. The game is open every Friday and Saturday through March 25.

“For us, it will be life-changing,” Proffitt said after his win. “I’m retired and we are on a fixed income so we now have options and the security we never dreamed we could have.”
