Tips, Terms & Wins

Twilight Zone and Music
While most Twilight Zone episodes may be considered scary, the slot version makes for winners.
Take the case of  Roseann Mazzola from Beacon Falls, CT who won \$204, 639 when she hit a Twilight Zone penny jackpot. Mazzola was on her way to a concert at the casino when she chose ‘the Zone’ slot because she had played and won before.
“I like that machine and game, I won \$900 the day before,” she stated. Unsure about grabbing the top progressive, Mazzola said, “I knew I hit something, but wasn’t sure what.”
