PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- A landscaper from Port Chester won the largest jackpot in Empire CIty Casino's eight-year history on Friday night, playing on a penny slot machine.

Manuel Esteche won $571,049 by spending $2.50 with a spin on the Bally Blazing 7 Hot Shots slot machine at 11:30 p.m., according to a casino spokesman.

The Yonkers casino reports that another slot machine has racked up more than $868,000 in potential winnings -- which would be a new record.

Esteche could not be reached for comment this week.

He owns Esteche Landscaping Corp.
