While at Barona, he waited until he finally found an open seat on the Megabucks machineand decided to test his luck with the fan-favorite slot. The payoff was unbelievable. When the sirens of winning sounded throughout the casino, crowds amassed and Thomas tried to connect with his wife who was playing on a near-by machine; she was equally shocked to get the news. The gracious winner does not yet have specific plans for the jackpot winnings.
