RENO, NV - A guest at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa won $3,894,219.06 in a Wheel of Fortune jackpot Sunday.
"You always see other people win, but you never expect it to be you," said the guest, who is an Atlantis regular and declined to be identified.
The guest says all debt will be paid off with the winnings, and then travel is in the future - first to Ireland, then Hawaii and an Alaskan cruise. "The past four years have been rough for us. I told [my spouse] that this was our year. I just can't believe this," said the winner.
"It could happen to anyone," said the guest. "I just sat down to play." The guest put $50 into the machine, and the jackpot hit when there was $13.50 left.
