The Station Casinos Jumbo Bingo Progressive has hit again, this time awarding $137,757 to Henderson local Ron Fitzmaurice. He was playing at Sunset Station with his wife last week when he won the jackpot in a 51-number coverall.

Fitzmaurice is the 22nd winner of the Station Casinos Jumbo Bingo Progressive Game. Since the game’s launch, over $9 million has been paid out to Station bingo players. No other bingo game offers the jackpot-sized payouts of the Jumbo Bingo Progressive Game.

"It was exhilarating!" Fitzmaurice said from his Henderson home. "Everyone started cheering and clapping ”” nearly a standing ovation."

Fitzmaurice said he plays bingo at Sunset Station almost every day, and loves the service he gets from the friendly team members at Sunset. "I’ve never won this much money in my entire life, but I hope it’s not the last time!" he added.

Jumbo Progressive Bingo is a linked game between the bingo rooms at Palace Station, Boulder Station, Texas Station, Sunset Station and Santa Fe Station.
