The wait was well worth it for transplanted Chicago native.
The Windy City retiree, who now lives in Las Vegas, realized a lifelong dream on Thursday when she won $96,000 at Rampart Casino.
She hit a 10-bet Royal Flush with a multiplier when she finally hit a big jackpot, according to a news release.
The winner, who didn’t want to be identified, said “I’ve been waiting my whole life to hit a jackpot like this!”
Last month, a 98-year-old Las Vegas-area woman cashed in on a $44,649.29 jackpot at the casino.
