Complete shock! I thought it was $10,000, then realized it was over a million!” she reported. Immediate plans for the new millionaire will include buying a new truck and “taking my boyfriend to Aruba.”

Saturday’s MegaJackpot® is the third and largest to be paid this year at Mohegan Sun. On January 11th, an impressive $677,912 Jeopardy!® MegaJackpot® prize was awarded.
