Arizona Charities Hit the Jackpot - An Unusual Jackpot Story!2017-08-30 08:16:42
The jackpot stories are a joy to read: after all, who wouldn't want to walk away with a couple of million after putting maybe a euro or two towards a go at the slot machines. However, what happens to jackpots that aren't claimed? Yes, some jackpots are never claimed.
Arizona casino has the answer
A casino in Arizona in the United States decided to write a great jackpot story itself: in early August the casino chain announced that it was giving away all unclaimed jackpot prizes to various charities.
“It is our privilege to provide these funds to such incredible non-profit organizations that benefit the lives of Arizonans,” commented Kenneth Manuel, CEO of Gila River Gaming Enterprises.
In order to receive a share of the jackpot funds, charities were able to apply to Gila River Gaming Enterprises until 18 August. All Arizona-based registered charities were given the chance to apply to Gila. Those that have successfully applied will receive an equal share of the total unclaimed annual jackpots.
The company, however, will not provide us with the exact details of their very generous jackpot story: Gila does not disclose the amount of their annual unclaimed jackpot fund.
