Suncoast regular Wayne Grussmeyer is $100,000 richer today, after capturing the top prize on Friday in Boyd Gaming’s annual “Spin Your Way to $100,000” slot tournament.
A total of 149 B Connected members from 13 Boyd Gaming properties earned berths into this year’s competition through qualifying tournaments across the country. The finals, consisting of four 15-minute rounds, were held at The Orleans in Las Vegas on November 10 and 11.
As the top point-earner in the tournament, Wayne Grussmeyer won a $100,000 cash prize. The next 19 top finishers received cash prizes ranging from $25,000 to $1,000 each.
“It still doesn’t seem real. All I know right now is that my wife and I are going on a cruise,” Grussmeyer said.
Second place and $25,000 went to Sam’s Town Tunica player Judy Rainwater, while Orleans customer Greg Mellor took home $20,000 with a third-place finish. Fourth-place winner Rudy Dickens, from Sam’s Town Las Vegas, won $15,000, while Vicky Hendrix of Sam’s Town Tunica received a $10,000 fifth-place prize.
