Hi there. This is Bambii1966. I just wanted to let you know that I still have not received any one or jackpots in this event or last event. I know you have promised to drop a jackpot yesterday but I still haven't received it I want you to know that I am not trying to complain but I have the patron pass and it does bother me that I'm not getting any drops Thank you very much for looking into this matter.
