Launched in 2006, Ca$hola was the first multistate, progressive video lottery game to be offered in the U.S region, and has been featured at all three Delaware Casinos, as well as casinos in Rhode Island and West Virginia. Dickerson received an initial $10,000 pay out by Dover Downs Hotel and Casino on May 15th. He has three weeks to decide whether to receive the remaining funds in a 30-year annuity or take a lump sum cash payout of $2,927,899.
Dickerson is also the winner of the final Ca$hola jackpot, which is close to end its five-year run after paying more than $52 million in annuity jackpot prizes. Three of the largest four jackpots at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino have been hit on a Ca$hola machine. A Laurel, Md. man won a $1,034,191 jackpot in July 2008, and a Dover, Del. woman won $318,760 in July 2007. Sunday’s jackpot at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino is the 37th Grand Prize to be won on a Ca$hola and the second largest to hit since its inception nearly five years ago.
