Alliance man wins more than $1 million on S.D. casino slot machine

Posted: Updated:

Gordon "Bud" Thompson of Alliance found a whole lot more than love this Valentine's Day; he became a millionaire with one spin of a slot machine.

Thompson was at Prairie Wind Casino on Thursday with his wife when he decided to play a few spins on a nearby machine. That's when things got exciting.

At first he didn't know he had won, "I didn't even realize what had happened," said Thomas. But he won a $1,037,375.93 jackpot. "

When asked what he would do with his winnings, Thompson says that he will have a family meeting to decide  the outcome of the funds.

Mr. Thompson is not only a big winner on his most recent visit, but a loyal customer to Prairie Wind Casino, "I've  been coming to Prairie Wind Casino for the past 18 years."
