BILOXI, Miss. – How would you like to give someone $40 and have them give you $1 million in return? That’s basically what happened Friday night at the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino.
Diane Harrison Kennedy, a self-employed 56-year-old woman from Kinston, North Carolina, was more than pleasantly surprised when she hit a $998,102 while playing a popular Wheel of Fortune® progressive dollar slot machine. After playing only $40, she hit the statewide MegaJackpot®.
“I was completely shocked,” said Kennedy when she realized that she had won after Mississippi State Police and IGT technicians verified the MegaJackpot®. “But, I have always dreamed I would it hit the big one, so I guess dreams really do come true!”
