Have you ever dreamed of winning the lottery or a big jackpot? Well, that dream came true for one lucky person a couple of days ago at a local casino. If you are from the Lake Charles and Southwest Louisiana area, then you know our area is like a mini Las Vegas.

We have the Coushatta Casino Resort in Kinder, Delta Downs in Vinton, The Golden Nugget, and L'Auberge in Lake Charles, and coming soon the old Isle of Capri will be opening back up as The Horseshoe casino later this year.

One person struck gold a couple of days ago playing on a slot machine at L'auberge Casino Resort. They were playing at a Top Dollar slot machine with a $100 denomination. That means they needed to play two credits to get into the bonus.

Two credits mean they had to pay $200 a spin on the machine. They were just doing that when they hit the bonus symbol and put them into the bonus. The machine lit up the biggest symbol which was $100,000 dollars but then lit up both of the times two symbols meaning it multiplied the winnings by four.  Do the math, that's $400,000!

After the big win, the folks at L'Auberge posted it on their Facebook page.

I would have passed out but of course, it would never happen to me anyway because I would never be playing $200 a spin.  Congrats to the big winner.
