Before the Tournament Begins…
Katherine Salavant, a retired nurse was awaiting the start of a slots tournament at the Isle of Capri when the $8 million sign above a Wheel of Fortune quarter progressive carousel caught her eye. Shortly, the big MegaJackpot struck for $8,224,611. “I guess you can say I was sitting at the right machine at the right time”, said the shocked winner. “My husband just walked away and I knew I had to find him fast and tell him I won the jackpot.”
Future plans for Salavant were stated as “I will probably purchase a new car and enjoy my retirement a bit more.”
