Wanted: Tips on acquiring this 'skill'

Posted By on Tue, Jun 19, 2012 at 6:34 AM

Noticed this squib on the Channel 4 Twitter feed:

A Pine Bluff Woman hit a jackpot Monday for $62,407.85 on a $.25 Wheel of Fortune Secret Spin machine.

That is the second largest jackpot at the Oaklawn Gaming Center since it opened in 2009.

Oaklawn's record for a single jackpot is $81,640 won by a Jacksonville woman on a $.25 Wheel of Fortune machine in November 2011.

The winner did not wish to give out her name.

Wish she'd let us know how to get in touch. Because there's nothing but electronic games of skill at Oaklawn, no slot machines. It is a gaming emporium, not a casino. The rest of us could use some advice on picking up the skills necessary to win big jackpots there.
