“Southland is the place to be to get lucky. In one month’s time, we have celebrated two jackpot wins totaling over $1.2 million dollars,” said Kendra Chaffin, Director of Gaming of Southland Casino Hotel.

Dealer Wesley Norvell said, “I have been waiting for the royal flush jackpot to hit, little did I know I would be the one to deal it! What a great experience! I’m glad that I could make somebody’s day, and probably year! Congratulations Mr. James, come back and see us!”

“We are excited to see players at Southland Casino continue to experience life-changing jackpots and break records with our table games progressives. Blackjack Match and Jackpot Hold’em are two examples of AGS games that have changed the landscape of traditional table games by offering players experiences that go beyond winning a big hand,” said John Hemberger, AGS GM & SVP of Table Products.
