What happened Tuesday 22th of March at the casino of Elko could be described as an American dream or a fairytale. During his day-off, Efren Aguirre, a 64 years old gold miner, won $12,5 million jackpot. Despite being now a multi-millionaire, Efren told that he’d continue to work!
The 22th of March, Efren Aguirre asked his boss a day-off. He decided to use this free time to play at the casino with his wife Maria.
Efren is 64 years old and has been working as a rock breaker operator at Newmont Mining Corp’s Leeville mine for 16 years. He emigrated from Mexico in 1968.
That very blessed day, he played at the IGT Megabucks slot machine. Having had $100 in the machine, he hit the jackpot on the seventh spin.
The jackpot was not less than $12,5 millions!
The elkodaily.com reports that Efren called a casino employee thinking that the machine was broke! But the employee confirmed him that he won the big jackpot.
It is already the largest payout of the Elko Gold Dust West Casino of all time.
After he took his payment, Efren Aguirre told that he will continue to work and keep a normal life because he loves his job.
With his wife, he bought their dream house on Beverly Circle in Elko. The couple is also going to put the majority of the money away in case of emergency.
What a beautiful way to react after winning a million jackpot!
