IGT's American Idol Encore creates another millionaire at Kewadin Casino St. Ignace

IGT’s American Idol® Encore creates another millionaire at Kewadin Casino St. Ignace 

(ST. IGNACE – April 22, 2013) – A Caro, Michigan woman became a new millionaire in St. Ignace when she won a $3,275,998 jackpot on an International Game Technology (NYSE: IGT) Money Madness American Idol®  Encore machine on April 21, 2013 at Kewadin Casino St. Ignace in St. Ignace, Mich.  This jackpot is the largest IGT Wide Area Progressive in the state for over 5 years.

This lucky night Pamela S. shared the joy of win with her whole family, including her husband, son, all in-laws and some friends. The new multimillionaire plans to use her jackpot to buy a new truck, pay off her house and start building a retirement house she has been dreaming about for so long.  “IGT congratulates our new winner and thanks Kewadin Casino St. Ignace for its participation,” said Susan Cartwright, IGT VP Corporate Communications.

Kewadin St. Ignace is Pamela’s favorite casino.  While on her first motor coach trip with Renee Cragg tours 25 years ago, her husband hit a jackpot with the two free rolls of quarters that were given to bus groups.  “We have been coming here on one of their tour busses ever since as an annual holiday gift to us,” Pamela said.  “After I pay off our house and buy a new truck, anything can happen,” she said about her winnings.  “This is a godsend for our family.”

IGT launched MegaJackpots® progressive product line in 1986 and has since produced thousands of major winners with jackpots ranging from just over $1 million to the world record slot jackpot of more than $39 million. More information about IGT is available at www.IGT.com.

Kewadin Casinos has five locations in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and has been in operation for nearly 30 years.  For more information, visit Kewadin.com.
