Alabama Gambling News Brief

Creek Entertainment Center announces $20,000 winner

Press Release,  Friday, January 5, 2007 at 9:01:07 AM

The Creek Entertainment Center announced that for the second time in four months, Wanda Smith of Atmore has won a Diamond Game tournament. The Diamond Holiday Cash Giveaway tournament winner was completed on New Year’s Day, January 1, 2007.

Poarch Creek Indian Gaming manages three gaming facilities in Alabama: the Creek Entertainment Center in Atmore; Riverside Entertainment Center in Wetumpka; and Tallapoosa Entertainment Center in Montgomery. Beginning November 13, 2006, guests at all three PCI Gaming casinos participated in the Holiday Cash Giveaway tournament by receiving random entries while playing Diamond Game’s electronic bingo games, by requesting free entries on selected nights or by mail, and by receiving entries randomly distributed by Diamond Games representatives.

A guest name was drawn at each of the three PCI Gaming casinos each week in December, and a final tenth drawing was held at Creek Entertainment on January 1, 2007. The finalists were:
Robert Tyus
Juanita Kast
Dan Sayviseth
Ron Lewis
Catrina Johnson
Ronald Thrash
Mike McCary
Wanda Smith
Yu-pi Ling
Lorenza Rocha

Diamond Game Representative Lauren Harjo was on hand at the Creek Entertainment Center to supervise as the ten winners then drew keys. The person with the key that opened the lock box of cash won the $20,000. The remaining nine contestants drew for cash prizes from $100 to $1,000, for a total of $2,000. Winners had to be present to win.

Needless to say, Smith was thrilled with her incredibly good fortune. When she realized she had won, she fell to her knees and said, “I can’t believe it. I just knew there was no chance of me winning.”
