OHIO MAN WINS $100,000 CASH IN WHEELING ISLAND SLOT TOURNAMENT
The signature $100,000 slot tournament was the richest in the tri-state area!
And the $100,000 winner is…G C Dahms, of Columbiana, OH. Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack presented Dahms a check for $100,000 on Sunday, November 21, 2010 following the Final round of Wheeling Island’s signature $100,000 Slot Tournament event.
The first minutes of the round started off slow but quickly turned around with Lucky 7s hitting around 3 minutes into the tournament. Dahms remained behind until the very end hitting his last big scoring combination with less than 30 seconds left to take home the $100,000 grand prize.
When asked what he thought about his $100,000 prize, Dahms replied, “I still can’t believe it. This was the best thing that has happened to me in years!”
The second through fifth place finishers also won their share of $10,000 in cash prizes. Barbara E. of St. Clairsville, OH won $4,000, Brenda W. of Woodsfield, OH won $3,000, Lois J. of Moundsville, WV won $2,000 and Larry C. of Columbus, OH won $1,000.
