ONE-MILLIONTH GUEST WELCOMED AT GRAND CASINO HINCKLEY! Cottage Grove Man Awarded Special Gifts for His "Lucky Number" HINCKLEY, Minn., Sept. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Some people's lucky number may be as simple as 5 or 7, buy Eric P. Schmidt, 23, of Cottage Grove, Minn. knows that his lucky number is definitely 1,000,000! That's because he was the one-millionth guest to visit Grand Casino Hinckley, and was told his good fortune by Marge Anderson, chief executive of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe, owners of the premier family-style casino. This was only Schmidt's second visit to the Hinckley facility, the first being three weeks ago. "This is just fantastic! I'm so surprised!", Schmidt exclaimed.

Grand Casino Hinckley opened May 15, 1992, and last Saturday welcomed over 22,000 guests in that one day alone! Anderson presented Schmidt with a framed certificate commemorating his position as guest number one-million, along with a second certificate which netted him $730 worth of gifts, including a three night stay for four people at a luxury Grand Resort Chalet, one of the permanent rental units at Grand Casino Hinckley's RV resort, adjacent to the casino (which opened Friday, Sept. 4, but will be officially dedicated next Tuesday, Sept. 15 at 11 a.m.).
