$1 Million Casino Winner Hasn't Told Husband Yet
IMMOKALEE, FL. – A simple trip to entertain house guests turned into a fortuitous trip for a Florida resident last Saturday evening at Seminole Casino Immokalee.
International Game Technology awarded $1,097,272.26 on a Wheel of Fortune® DoubleDiamond® slot machine to "Connie B." of Naples, Florida according to a press release by the casino.
The latest millionaire winner at the Southwest Florida gambling hall said that the slot machine is the game she typically plays, and has won on it before, but never to the extent which she did on Saturday.
As the reels began to line up with Double Diamonds, Connie turned to her friend who was playing at a machine next to her and whispered “I think I won a million dollars,” a fact that her friend confirmed after seeing the lined up icons on the screen.
The winner shared the news with her two sons, but has yet to inform her husband who is finishing up a hunting trip out of state. She said she has no immediate plans on how she will spend the jackpot winnings.
