The signature $100,000 slot tournament was the richest in the tri-state area!

(Wheeling, WV – November 18, 2012) And the $100,000 winner is…Susan Reed of Canal Fulton, OH! Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack presented Reed a check for $100,000 free play on Sunday, November 18, 2012 following the final round of Wheeling Island’s signature $150,000 Slot Tournament event.
 
In the first half of the 5 minute round, the finalists were neck-and-neck. That changed when Reed picked up enough points in the last 90 seconds of the round to take the lead on her slot tournament machine. She maintained that lead until the end to take home the $100,000 free play grand prize.
 
After the round ended and Reed realized she was the winner, she replied with a smile “I wasn’t nervous until the very end.”
 
The second through fifth place finishers also won their share of $10,000 in free play prizes. Mary C. of Zoar, OH won $4,000, Mary B. of St. Louisville, OH won $3,000, Deborah M. of Alledonia, OH won $2,000 and Dennis W. of Rayland, OH won $1,000.
