A Mariposa man who bet $100 on a new slot machine won a $741,022 jackpot Tuesday at Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino.
The man, who was identified only as Russell J., sat down at Aristocrat’s Buffalo Grand and won after 20 minutes of playing, the casino said Wednesday. Chukchansi abbreviated the man’s last name because it has a policy of not releasing full names. The machine was installed on June 21.
The man plans to use the money to supplement his retirement savings.
