Bronx Man Hits $150K Jackpot on Wheel of Fortune at Empire City Casino 

James from The Bronx Hits $149,931 Jackpot on Wheel of Fortune at Empire City Casino Sunday; $1.6 Million Record-Breaker Still up for Grabs


Yonkers, New York — Bring it home, James! A lucky man made the short trip from The Bronx to Yonkers a winning journey on Sunday afternoon (May 21) when James M. hit a $149,931 jackpot at Empire City Casino. The six-figure score was made in the Gotham Palace section of the casino on the Wheel of Fortune slot, just yards away from the slot machine where a New York State racetrack casino record $1,680,471 jackpot is still waiting to be hit.

 

James made a $6 wager on a $1 denomination machine to score at 4:23 PM, capping off a lucrative weekend.

 

The Empire City life-changer still looming continues to soar. On May 9, it eclipsed $1.6 for the first time in history. On April 17,  it had soared past $1.5 million for the first time, and on April 10, when it reached $1,480,045, it eclipsed the previous all-time Empire City and New York racetrack casino jackpot record hit by Howard Gershowitz of Suffolk County, Long Island ($1,473,503 on October 25, 2015).

 

Meanwhile, Howard G. continues to remain in the “slot-light” as advertising pitchman for Empire City’s television ad campaign entitled “Real Winners, Real Money, Real Deal” which continues to air on local sports television networks.

 

This record-breaker is ripe again for winning and is only available on two Wheel of Fortune slots at Empire City Casino. Who will be the next Howard G.?!
