Texas Guest Wins Wheel Of Fortune® Megajackpot®

July 2, 2012

Kinder, LA—On June 30, 2012, Darwin from Texas won a $227,235 Wheel of Fortune® MegaJackpot® on a 25¢ slot machine while playing his favorite game at Coushatta Casino Resort.

The winner and his wife were celebrating their wedding anniversary with a trip to Coushatta. After investing “about $100” into the winning machine, Darwin reported thinking, “I won this!” when he realized he had won the top award. He immediately called his wife to tell her the news, and she thought he was joking with her about the win. When asked what he plans to do with his winnings, the new MegaJackpot® winner responded, “Put it in the bank!”
