A waitress from Sacramento won $885,257 when she hit a Megabucks slot machine jackpot Sunday at the Silver Legacy Resort Casino in downtown Reno.
“I didn’t know what I won at first,” said Chelsea Robinson, 25, who put less than $10 in the Wheel of Fortune machine. “I was trying to figure it out when a casino man came up and told me I hit the big one. I was shocked. I still can’t believe it. I’m just sort of numb all over.”
Robinson, who will receive her winnings in annual installments, said she’d use the money to buy a house.
“My boyfriend got me hooked on playing the Wheel of Fortune game,” said Robinson, who hit the jackpot shortly after arriving at the Silver Legacy with 13 friends on a tour bus. “But I never expected this.”
