(Valley Center, CA) – April 25, 2013 – Christopher R. hit it big last Sunday when he won the exclusive Colossal Coin jackpot at Valley View Casino & Hotel. Christopher was playing the Rawhide machine when he set off the mystery progressive jackpot, winning $254,684. Unlike mystery progressive jackpots at other casinos, Valley View Casino & Hotel awards their Colossal Coin jackpot in one lump sum – which means that Christopher was able to receive the jackpot right away.

"Christopher has been a loyal guest for many years and we are happy that he hit it big here at San Diego's luckiest casino," said Bruce Howard, General Manager of Valley View Casino & Hotel. "At Valley View Casino & Hotel we pride ourselves on offering every guest 2,000 Certified Loose slots, outstanding dining options and a memorable guest service experience. There has now been over $9,000,000 awarded to 112 winners over the past seven years through our exclusive mystery progressive Colossal Coin jackpot and we cannot wait to see which one of our guests will win in the near future."

The Colossal Coin jackpot can hit at any time at Valley View Casino & Hotel. Guests simply need to use their Players Club card while playing to be eligible to win. Joining the Players Club is quick, easy and free, and using your Players Club card is all you have to do to win. Following Christopher's win, the Colossal Coin jackpot reset to $10,000 and will award another lucky winner with life-changing cash before it reaches $1,000,000.

"On behalf of the San Pasqual Tribe and the San Pasqual Casino Development Group Inc., we congratulate Christopher on his win," said Joe Navarro, President and Chief Executive Officer of the San Pasqual Casino Development Group, Inc. "We are always excited for our guests when they win big and we look forward to awarding the next Colossal Coin jackpot to a lucky Players Club member at Valley View Casino & Hotel."
