Gillette Couple Wins Big in Deadwood

(Deadwood, SD) Dwight and Debra Jennings picked the right moment Friday night to walk into the Midnight Star and play the popular “Big Bertha” Pharaoh’s Gold slot machine. The Gillette couple had just five coins left after playing the giant machine for a while. So, when Dwight hit the button, betting the maximum, and four Pharaoh’s Gold symbols rolled into place, his wife Debra starting screaming. The couple had just won an unbelievable $50,000 jackpot. The South Dakota Commission on Gaming confirmed the win, and a tall stack of $100 bills was counted in to Dwight’s hands. "This is really going to give my woodshop a big upgrade," Jennings said. "Then we’ll pay off the credits cards and might even be able to pay off the house. A great start to my retirement!" The couple spent the night in Deadwood celebrating their giant jackpot win.
