INDIO, Calif. – The slots at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino are hot and lots of lucky winners have big smiles and big checks to prove it. Recent players have won a total of nearly $100,000, including more big winners each Saturday in the resort’s Bank Busters drawings.

Harbhajan Singh of Anaheim found his jackpot at Fantasy Springs coated in 24 carat gold. He says Fantasy Springs is one of his favorite casinos and on a recent visit, he sat down at a $25 “24 Karat” slot machine. After only two minutes of spinning the reels, Harbhajan hit the gold standard with the symbols lining up across the center of the screen. His quick win netted him $20,000.

Jill made a trip to the lower desert from the higher desert in Victorville, Calif. She says she’s a self-employed, self-made woman and enjoys spending some free time at casinos, though now Fantasy Springs is at the top of her list. Since Quercio is living out her American dream, she selected a $50 Star Spangled Sevens slot machine. Whether it was luck or the alliteration of the name of the slot machine on her side, Jill’s all-American machine rewarded her with a $15,000 jackpot.

Noel went back to Los Angeles with a cool $10,000 in his pocket after a recent stop in to Fantasy Springs Resort Casino. For him, his second visit was a charm and his win came at a very opportune time as his daughter is about to start college. At a $1 Quick Hit slot machine, Noel says he played about 30 minutes. On his very next spin, Noel says it was like slow motion as he watched the Quick Hit symbols on the slot reels, one after the other, stop in the middle of the screen. Bautista won $10,000 and will use the money to pay for some of his daughter’s schooling.

Cristobal Vallez of Indio zeroed in on a 25 cent Pot O’ Gold slot machine at Fantasy Springs on July 1.

Dionicio Astang did not know that his luck was secretly following him. After playing at the blackjack tables and not doing as well as he would have liked, Dionicio was walking out of Fantasy Springs when he was forced to walk another route because workers were conducting routine maintenance on a section of slot machines. As he walked a different way out of the casino, a $1 Quick Hit slot machine caught his eye and he started playing. After only a few spins of the reels, he hit the $10,000 jackpot.
