Couple Wins ‘Instant Fortune’ at Seminole Brighton Casino

A couple won the largest jackpot ever at Seminole Casino Brighton.

$400,000, the largest gaming machine jackpot in the history of the Seminole Casino Brighton, was won Thursday late afternoon, May 13 by a man from Florida’s east coast who was playing a one-cent Bally Instant Fortune wide-area progressive slot machine.

The largest jackpot won at Seminole Casino Brighton had been $129,882.45 in July, 2006. In October 2008 a local 69-year-old great grandmother won $79,000 on a Forbidden Treasures progressive slot machine at the casino located in Okeechobee.

Like other progressive gaming machines, that machine is linked to all North American Indian casinos including the Seminole Tribe of Florida’s seven casinos. Progressive machine jackpots increase each time a game is played at the linked casinos. All seven Seminole Tribe of Florida casinos now also offer Las Vegas-style slot machines.

William W. and his wife are regular players at Brighton Seminole Casino and also frequent flyers to Las Vegas and Biloxi casinos. But they had never won a jackpot of this size. They told casino officials that they are going to pay off some of their bills with the “Instant Fortune” win and enjoy the rest.

The Seminole Casino Brighton is a 27,000-square-foot casino with 240 slot and gaming machines, a 10-table poker room, and 500 high-stake bingo seats, with full service restaurant and lounge. Its warm and friendly staff, ultra-modern air-conditioning system, clean atmosphere, and rewarding casino promotions are a welcome alternative to big city gaming.

The Seminole Casino Brighton is located in the Brighton Indian Reservation, 17735 Reservation Road, Okeechobee, Florida, 34974. For more information, call toll- free (866) 2-Casino or 863-467-9998. Visit
