Baton Rouge Man Hits $2 Million Jackpot at Mississippi Casino
Terry Hill of Baton Rouge was ready to call it a night on Tuesday after playing a couple of hours at the Magnolia Bluffs Casino in Natchez, Mississippi. He was ready to take his $800 winnings and call it a day.
Good thing he had a friend that wanted to play a few more rounds.
Hill sat down at a Wheel of Fortune Wild Sevens progressive slots machine and began playing. He played $34 from his winnings at the online poker game without any luck.
Then he hit the jackpot.
Hill said he couldn't believe what he saw so he grabbed the person next to him and said, "Does that say what I think that says?"
The screen displayed that Hill had just won $2,016,606.22.
"I don't even know what I'm going to do with it," Hill said. "I haven't even thought that far ahead."
Hill is president and part-owner of Milton J. Womack, Inc., a construction company in Baton Rouge. He said he and his friends often go to Natchez to duck hunt at a camp he rents in Deer Park. The group often will go play a few rounds at the casino.
Magnolia Bluffs Casino has only been open since 2012 and according to a representative from the casino, this is the biggest win seen so far there.
