For the second time in less than a month, a lucky gambler has won more than $1 million at a Coast casino.
It happened last week at the Beau Rivage when a woman from Texas hit $1.2 million on a slot machine. The casino tells us that it happened Aug. 6. The woman was playing a 25-cent Triple Double Diamond Wheel of Fortune slot machine when she hit $1,245,278.04. The casino did not identify the woman.
Another visitor to the casino caught the moment after she hit the jackpot on video.
Just last month on July 18, a Florida man hit $1.3 million on a slot machine at the Hard Rock. It was the highest paying machine in South Mississippi in the last ten years. The man, a regular at the casino, was playing in the high limits area on a $10 machine when he hit for $1.3 million.
