LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Smiles were abundant at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tampa, Fla., when a lucky player hit a life-changing $1,303,247.52 jackpot on IGT's (IGT) legendary MegaJackpots slot machine, Wheel of Fortune.
The fortunate player, who wished to remain anonymous, was casually playing $5 Wheel of Fortune Double Diamonds, when the most-loved slot machine of all-time sounded, signaling a big jackpot win. When the winner realized he had won the million-plus jackpot, he was overcome with a feeling of gratitude, acknowledging the extra money will allow him to "help his kids a little more." The winner stated that right before placing the winning-wager, he looked to his wife and advised that he was going to win for her - and well, he did!
