Kirkland (WA) Man Hits $262,820 Jackpot at Coeur d’Alene Casino during Huge Payout Weekend;

Two bingo players also cashed big, splitting the $120,000 Cash Cow jackpot


(Worley, Idaho; August 9, 2023) – Little did a Kirkland (WA) man suspect that he’d walk out of Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort Hotel last weekend after winning more than one-quarter-million dollars - $262,820 to be more specific.


That’s understandable given he was at the resort to play golf.


“I have played the casino’s Circling Raven Golf Club before and was doing so again last weekend,” said the man named Kevin (who declined to provide his last name). “But this was the first time I went into the casino.”


Clearly it was a fortuitous decision by Kevin, who said he’ll use the money to buy a new car and substantially bolster his financial savings. He didn’t know that he hit the jackpot at first whilst playing the popular “Buffalo” video game machine in the casino’s High Limit VIP Gaming Room, Hn Lamqe’ (“Bear” in Coeur d’Alene language).


“I was in a bonus spin sequence, and it kept building through those free spins,” he recalled. “I didn’t know where the jackpot was going to stop. It was a thrilling ride.”


He wasn’t the only thrilled guest of Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort Hotel last weekend. Two Bingo players split the $120,000 “Cash Cow” jackpot. Both are regular guests and Bingo veterans.
