TAMPA, Fla. (March 31, 2014) – A Wheel of Fortune slot machine proved to be just that for one lucky player at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa last Thursday when it produced a $1.3 million payout.
The player, who wants to remain anonymous, was playing an IGT-manufactured $5 Wheel of Fortune Double Diamonds machine when he hit the jackpot.
Apparently, the Garfield Heights, Ohio resident had a premonition just prior to hitting the jackpot as he told his wife he was going to win for her. He acknowledged the extra money will allow him “to help his kids a little more.”
Just last month, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa produced a $2.8 million winner on the Jackpot Empire penny slot machine, which was the second largest jackpot ever won at the property.
The high-water jackpot mark at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa was previously set on June 29, 2012 — $3.6 million.
