Connecticut Resident Hits $100,020 Jackpot at Empire City Casino

June jackpots have kicked off summer at Empire City Casino. A Connecticut player identified as “Vincent” hit a jackpot worth $100,020 on June 28 at 5:05 pm, the second six-figure jackpot of the month, and fifth in 2016.

Like the earlier June score, the hit was made in the Gotham Palace, this one on the Bally/Double Jackpot Wild slot. Vincent made a $5 wager on the $1 denomination machine. “Lucy” from the Bronx hit the jackpot for $129,107 on June 8 on the Bally/Hot Shot Progressive machine.


Yonkers Raceway’s team of five premier drivers, led by points-leader Jordan Stratton, try to say “au revoir” to their French counterparts when the group travels across the Atlantic to Hippodrome de Vincennes in Paris for the second leg of the inaugural Yonkers vs. France Drivers’ Cup Challenge.  There’s one race each next Friday, June 24, and Sunday, June 26.

The first leg saw Stratton win both Yonkers’ races on March 20, one in a dead-heat with Yonkers captain Jason Bartlett. The locals won the opening round, 85 points to 47 (points awarded as 17/12/9/7/6/5/4/3/2/1, with five given in the event of a scratch).

In addition to Bartlett and Stratton, Tyler Buter, Dan Dube and Pat Lachance are representing Westchester against a potent French quintet of Pierre Vercruysse (captain), Matthieu Abrivard, Nicolas Ensch, Pierre Levesque and Franck Ouvrie.
