By  | 

A small gamble turned into a huge pay day for a California man at a Reno casino.

The man had bet $4 Sunday at the Reno Hilton and walked away with a $4.5 million jackpot, casino officials said.

The winner, who asked to remain anonymous, said he and his wife weren't feeling particularly lucky when he hit the jackpot on a Wheel of Fortune MegaJackpot machine.

He said they don't have any definite plans for the money - but they are looking forward to a comfortable retirement.
