Just one day before a milestone birthday, Robert P. of Eden, N.Y. received the ultimate present when he hit a giant $844,437 jackpot on global gaming entertainment leader IGT’s (NYSE: IGT) Jurassic Park™ Video Slots at Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino in downtown Buffalo, N.Y. on Tuesday, Aug. 26.
Robert placed a $3 maximum bet on the penny machine and landed five WILD symbols across the screen for the top prize. The penny-denomination machine is one of only two on Seneca Casino’s gaming floor and was added to their collection of more than 800 slots earlier this year.
“When the machine hit, at first I thought I won a thousand bucks,” said the winner. “Then I saw $844,000 and thought the machine malfunctioned. I still can’t comprehend it. It’s a life-changing amount of money.”
“What an incredible surprise birthday gift for one of our guests,” said Jennifer Caruso, general manager, Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino. “Robert’s win just goes to show that anyone can walk in a player, and walk out a mind-boggling big winner. And in this case, this winner went home a game-changing jackpot winner.”
Robert said it was only the second time he played the Jurassic Park™ Video Slots, and he has not decided how to enjoy his winnings just yet, but said he will consult with his wife to figure out a game plan.

About Jurassic Park
Since Universal Pictures and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment first joined forces to unleash an adventure over 65 million years in the making, Jurassic Park has become the “premier” and “authentic” dinosaur brand the world over. When Jurassic Park was released in 1993, it became an instant phenomenon. In the years that followed, two additional films were released – The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III – bringing the trilogy’s worldwide box office total to more than $2 billion. The franchise continues to resonate with consumers worldwide via consumer products, popular attractions at Universal Studios Theme Parks and annual airings of the three films on a multitude of television networks. The Jurassic Park Ultimate Trilogy, recently made available on Blu-ray for the first time, showcases all three films in high definition with 7.1 surround sound and hours of new bonus features.
