ROSSFORD - Hitting a $100,000 jackpot would normally be a once in a lifetime event, but not for a local man.
Martin Halka, 42, of Oregon, held the record for the largest jackpot won in the history of Hollywood Casino Toledo until July 9, when he broke his own record and hit a $250,000 jackpot on a Triple Diamond game.
"It took me a couple seconds to realize what was happening. You always hope to hit the big one, but never expect it to actually happen," he said. Martin and his wife Darcie plan on using the money to expand their concrete company.
Hollywood Casino Toledo's General Manager Richard St. Jean was thrilled when he saw the record-setting jackpot. Since opening on May 29, 2012, the casino has paid out over $46 million in jackpots.
