LAS VEGAS, April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- IGT's (NYSE: IGT) legendary MegaJackpots® slot machine, Wheel of Fortune, created another millionaire!

The new millionaire said that when he realized he'd struck it rich on a Wheel of Fortune Five Times PayTM slot machine, he jumped up and down with excitement and a feeling of "complete joy." He said that he plans to keep working because he "loves his job" and will use some of his winnings for travel and charities and invest most of the money in his and his family's future.
