Most of you probably know that Patricia Sheik of Lakewood, NJ was the winner of our One Million Dollar Giveaway this past Sunday at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City!

Millionaire Maker 1

Sheik had selected #3 in the giveaway finals that evening and lo and behold, that number was matched for the win! Not surprisingly there has been a lot of interest buzzing around as of late in regards to the 712th Caesars Entertainment Millionaire. We JUST sat down with Patty to have some of those questions answered for ya! Check out the interview, below.

Millionaire Maker 2

TAC: What has been your experience with being a Total Rewards member and playing at Caesars Entertainment Atlantic City properties?

Patricia Sheik: I’m a Caesars girl because of the employees. Everybody’s wonderful. They’re more like friends. They are always so happy to see you when you come in and I have a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful slot hostess, Susan Morere. They’re just good people and that’s why I play there. I like to play anywhere, but I go to Caesars because of the people.

TAC: What is your game of choice at Caesars Atlantic City?

Patricia Sheik: I play the slot machines! I like In The Money, the $5 Wheel Of Fortune and just whatever happens to strike my fancy!

TAC: What did you first think when you heard of this $1 Million Dollar Giveaway for our Millionaire Maker campaign and why did you choose to participate?

Patricia Sheik: I happened to go down quite by accident on Sunday and I was told to make sure that I swipe my card because you were having the Millionaire Maker Finals. I wasn’t real sure what it was, but I swiped my card and here I am!

TAC: Take us through your thought process: What did you think when you heard your name called as a finalist?

Patricia Sheik: I almost fell off the seat of the slot machine that I was playing!

TAC: What were you thinking when you were holding your #3 and waiting for the winning number to be revealed?

Patricia Sheik: I wasn’t quite sure what to think because it was so overwhelming! To all those people that were there on Sunday, to be part of the finals, to have a chance, only in America would you be able to have that chance! When that number came, I was just in total shock. I was so surprised and so thrilled because I just want to be able to take care of my family. I would like to see what kind of philanthropist I can be in a small way. I just couldn’t be happier.

TAC: What did you do to celebrate your winnings?

Patricia Sheik: I was back down there last night! It’s what I like to do!

TAC: Many people are wondering who our new Millionaire is. What can you tell us about yourself?

Patricia Sheik: I like to take care of my family. I like them to be happy. I have hobbies that I enjoy. I’m a sea glasser and I just retired a year ago from teaching, almost 40 years. I also enjoy my animals. I love the birds and the squirrels and the chipmunks and now I have two mallard ducks that come every day to visit. I love watching them and feeding them.

TAC: Did you buy anything with the money yet?

Patricia Sheik: A kiddie pool for my ducks!

TAC: Do you feel any different now than you did a week ago?

Patricia Sheik: I think I feel relaxed knowing that there’s some security for my family, but it won’t change me. I won’t change my lifestyle. I want to be wise with it so my children can be taken care of. They’re adults, but it’s not easy today for young adults. There’s less worry. It’s peace of mind and a sense of security.

TAC: What would be your advice to Total Rewards players in preparation for our next One Million Dollar giveaway when the time comes?

Patricia Sheik: The funny thing was that I’ve been playing at  Caesars for years. I’ve won some small things, but in the back of my mind I’ve always said ‘some day my ship is going to come in.’ I never thought it would be that big of one. You never know. If it can happen to me, it can happen to anybody.

TAC: Anything else you would like to share with us?!

Patricia Sheik: I just want people to know that the people at Caesars are wonderful. It’s the people that make your business. It’s the human interaction. It’s the people and that’s why I play.

And there you have it, folks. The words of a millionaire. Jealous? Don’t be! This could be you July 6th, August 3rd or September 1st! Click here for more info!
