Man wins nearly $230,000 on slots at Deadwood casino

Posted: Updated:

DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota man who won nearly $230,000 at a Deadwood casino on slots doesn't have any particular plans for how he and his wife will use the money.

Joseph and Eleanor Tomac of Keldron said they will use the $228,979 that Joseph won at the slot machines at Tin Lizzie Casino on Sunday to give themselves a financial cushion in their retirement and something to leave their five children.

Joseph Tomac says he's just thankful to be "one of the lucky ones."
