The Seminole Casino Brighton, the one out in Okeechobee, hit its largest slot jackpot in history -- $400,000 -- last week. A man from Florida’s east coast 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. Like other progressive gaming machines, that machine is linked to all North American Indian casinos including the Seminole Tribe of Florida’s seven casinos.
