California Gambler Wins $374K Jackpot At Sky River Casino On Father’s Day

A gambler from Pittsburg, California, hit the $374,151 jackpot on Father’s Day at Sky River Casino in Elk Grove while celebrating the holiday with her husband. The lucky woman, who wished to remain anonymous, won the six-figure prize after hitting the Triple Diamond Progressive while playing Blackjack near the casino’s Rock Bar.

“While every day is a winning day at Sky River, holidays tend to be even luckier for our guests as we’ve seen a number of impressive jackpots that have coincidentally hit on special days,” said Sky River Casino President Michael J. Facenda.

“We love celebrating with our guests and the contagious energy created by these life-changing jackpots. Plus, we look forward to adding an additional 400 slot gaming options that are part of our exciting expansion plans underway now at Sky River Casino.”

The $370,000 jackpot came about eight days after someone won over $2 million at the Colusa Casino Resort while playing the progressive jackpot on a $5 Wheel of Fortune slot machine, one of the casino’s biggest wins.

A jackpot worth $516,471 was won at Sky River Casino in February

In February, a Sacramento resident also won big while playing Blackjack at the casino. The jackpot worth $516,471 was won at a table between the Rock Bar and River Bar when the Sacramentan hit the progressive jackpot.

“Our tables are hot and our progressive card games continue to be extraordinarily lucky,” said Facenda. “We love to share in the excitement of life-changing wins when our guests hit it big, the energy is contagious throughout the casino.”

In December 2023, two Sky River Reward members hit the progressive jackpots playing Face-Up Pai Gow and Ultimate Texas Hold’ Em. Each gambler won over $500,000.

Sky River Casino opened in August 2022 and features 100,000 sq. ft. of gaming, 2,100 slot machines, 80 table games, and 18 elevated restaurants, bars, and lounge destinations.

It was built by the Wilton Rancheria Tribe in partnership with Boyd Gaming Corporation, which is managing the property for the tribe.
