Woman wins $5 million at Oregon casino
by UPI

FLORENCE , Ore. - An Oregon casino said a woman won a record-setting $5 million from a $4 bet on a slot machine after less than an hour at the casino.

A spokesman for the Three Rivers Casino and Hotel in Florence said the Hillsboro, Ore., woman had been playing the Penny Wheel of Fortune machine, which is networked to a number of machines throughout the West Coast and allows for large payoffs by a building a percentage from all play on the machines, KPTV, Portland, Ore., reported Tuesday.

The woman said the Wheel of Fortune symbols lined up and the machine instructed her to call for an attendant after she had been in the casino for less than one hour.

The spokesman said the woman's payout, $5,284,316, topped the previous record for a slot machine at the casino, $1.3 million in 2005.
