There are plenty of lucky people who win many times more than that every day in Las Vegas. What makes Pam’s situation special is that it comes a year to the day that a heart attack took her out of the running for the same tournament last year.

The only sure thing about luck is that it will change.” — 19th century author Bret Harte

While playing in last year’s October Super Bingo event, Pam experienced chest pain and was admitted to Valley Hospital, according to the Plaza.

Pam declined an interview with Casino.org and asked the casino not to reveal her last name. Here’s a video of her win, though:

Super Bingo is a three-day tournament held nine times a year, drawing around 1,000 people for each event. The next tournament is scheduled for Nov. 27-29.

According to the Plaza, Pam has played in October’s tournament for the past four years.
