$175 million jackpots and counting at Agua Caliente Casinos coax two life-changing jackpots one-year apart

CATHEDRAL CITY, CALIF. (August 17, 2022)  – Agua Caliente Casino Cathedral City, the award-winning casino, dining and entertainment destination in Cathedral City, Calif. has had two lucky winners of mega jackpots hit nearly one year apart. Since January 1, 2022, the three-casino portfolio has already paid out more than $175 million in jackpots, one of the highest jackpot payouts in Southern California.

In 2021, Kari and Michael of Washington state took home $668,777 from the popular Wheel of Fortune slot machine when they hit the mega jackpot. Most recently, a “lucky but shy” winner took home $256,149 on another hot slot machine – Buffalo Legends.

“Agua Caliente Casino Cathedral City is the place to go to win,” said Darrel Kammeyer, Vice President of Marketing for Agua Caliente Casinos. “It’s very rare that life changing jackpots like these happen in general, let alone at the same property, let alone one year apart. We love sharing in the winners’ excitement and always hope that these surprise earnings could really help them.”

Kari and Michael had no idea that when they placed their $5.00 bet on the Mega Wheel of Fortune slot machine, that their luck was about to change. “Just one more spin and then we will call it a night,” the couple said. The last reel on their last spin landed on the winning combination of the wide-area progressive slot machine instantly, making Kari and Michael mega jackpot winners – and extremely excited.

Agua Caliente Casino Cathedral City is owned and operated by the Agua Caliente Cahuilla Band of Indians. It features the newest and hottest games on the 38,000 square foot casino floor and live music and events at the Agave Caliente Terraza. Agua Caliente Casino Cathedral City is home to a variety of four dining options – Café One Eleven, a chic venue for breakfast, lunch and dinner serving upscale Mexican cuisine and more; Java Caliente a coffee and dessert bar; 360 Sports, a sports fanatic’s favorite place to watch the game on floor-to-ceiling wrap-around screens while enjoying elevated sports bar bites; and Agave Caliente Tequila Bar, which features over 50 types of agave-based spirits and hosts themed nights such as Taco Tuesdays, Salsa Nights and Country Nights.
