A Fort Lauderdale woman celebrating her 60th birthday is now a millionaire after hitting the jackpot on a $1 slot machine at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
The woman was inducted into a new tax bracket on Thursday after wagering a $5 bet on the slot machine:
“I am in absolute shock,” the woman told our news partners at WPTV. ” You like to dream big but that’s really big. That’s not even in the really big. That’s not even in the ballpark of what you think you can win. That’s a lottery. It still feels like a dream.”
The winner who asked to remain anonymous says she plans to spend her winnings modestly:
“We’re talking about hurricane windows,” she said. ” We talked about resurfacing the pool or maybe getting a nicer condo after retirement.”
The 3.8 million win is the largest payout at any Seminole Tribe of Florida gaming property.
