«The Luckiest Casino Gambler
Only one year passed after Hollywood Casino Toledo was established when Mr. Halka succeeded in hitting a jackpot worth $ 100 000 and becoming the first gambler to win such an impressive prize since the day the casino was launched. Never before could this Oregon citizen, a 42-year-old American think of hearing the triumph tune of the slot machine ever again. But that happened. Last Tuesday Fortuna smiled upon the owner of Bay Area Concrete in Oregon one more time.
It’s hard to describe what Mr. Halka felt when he saw the wished three diamonds on the screen of the slot. It took some time for the lucky guy to fully realize that he became the winner of the jackpot for the second time. While playing Trimple Diamond this time he hit a jackpot worth $ 250 000.
“That was absolutely surreal. I pinched myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming. Thank God my winning was real,” reported overwhelmed Mr. Halka.One could hardly believe that someone who has recently hit a huge jackpot in a newly opened casino would beat his own record in such an easy manner. At that moment few believed the information was correct; even Mr. Halka’s wife doubted if that was true. Some were sure that it was just a smart trick to promote the casino and make it more popular.
“He phoned me and explained what had happened to him, but I thought that it was just another of his jokes,” said his wife. “I didn’t take it for real, I was truly shocked.”Richard St.Jean, the general manager of Hollywood Casino Toledo was not less surprised than Mrs. Halka.“This bloke is incredibly lucky. Very few can boast of hitting two tremendous jackpots in such a short period of time,” he said.Mr. Halka, an experienced and passionate gambler, has always been a regular customer of Hollywood Casino Toledo established on May 29, 2012. Since the very founding of this gambling facility he frequently visited the casino, at least once a month on average.
Some people who do not want to believe in Halka’s luck have been bad-mouthing him, claiming that Mr. Halka figured out how to outwit slot machines. Mr. Halka resists all the lashing and says that all those who do not believe in his luck can simply replace the slots at any time, but if he was born under a lucky star, no jackpot can be saved. He is just being lucky. The truth is, however, that Mr. Halka has gone through lots of unpleasant moments and used to believe that Fortuna turned its back on him.
Mr. Halka was born in 1970, Curtis, Ohio. His mother died when the boy was only 6 years old. He lived and studied in Oregon. After finishing school he helped his father with their family business. Another tragic event happened in his life when young Halka lost his father in 1992. The 22-year-old young man stayed on his own.
“It is absolutely unbelievable! I have never considered myself a lucky person,” says the double winner of the jackpot. “It’s too good to be true!”Now Mr. and Mrs. Halka are in sufficient funds to repair their house, found their own company in Curtis, and also spoil their four children a bit.
“Dad has already purchased me a four wheeler and I am so excited and happy,” says his 13-year-old son Michael. “I could never think my dad would manage to become a winner once again, so I was very astonished to hear the news.”After such amazing winnings.
Hollywood Casino Toledo became quite a popular casino and so far it has paid out $ 46 000 000 to its winners.
