  SAN DIEGO, CA, Dec 10 (Marketwire) -- 
Umberto R. won big at Barona Resort & Casino early Sunday morning when he
hit a $115,704 jackpot playing a Wheel of Fortune(R) progressive slot
machine. This was the second six-figure jackpot to strike at San Diego's
best casino during the holiday season. A San Diego man hit a $438,894
jackpot Thanksgiving weekend.

    "Our entire Barona family is thrilled to congratulate Umberto on this
lucky jackpot," said Rick Salinas, general manager of Barona Resort &
Casino. "These big wins are one of the many reasons why we are known as
San Diego's loosest casino."

    The Wheel of Fortune(R) progressive system has a starting jackpot of one
million dollars. In order to win the MegaJackpot(R), a player tries to
line up the Wheel of Fortune(R) symbols on the machine's payline. Each
time a bet is played in a linked machine, anywhere in the network, the
cumulative jackpot grows and continues to build until it is won.

    Known as San Diego's loosest casino, Barona offers 2,000 slot and video
poker machines, monitored by The Barona Loose Troop(R) to ensure they are
the loosest around. Additionally, the casino features over 80 table games
