Tuolumne, CA — A gentleman only identified as Martin from the valley struck it rich Saturday at 2am at Black Oak Casino by cashing in on the largest jackpot ever.
Martin won $3.8 million on the Marilyn Monroe slot machine. After taxes have been secured the remaining funds will be paid out over a 25 year period.
Black Oak Casino General Manager Ron Patel says the previous high was a $3.6 million jackpot won in the initial phase of the casino.
Patel adds that a number of native American casinos have similar machines and the jackpot is actually paid out from a pooling of funds in those machines.
