LAS VEGAS (KSNV News3LV) —
A Texas woman on vacation is now a millionaire after hitting the jackpot at Paris Las Vegas.
On Oct. 28, San Antonio resident Slyvia Tejeda sat down to play the popular Wheel of Fortune slot machine at Paris Las Vegas when she became a millionaire after hitting the over $1.2 million dollar jackpot.
Officials say Tajeda was "happy, going crazy and in shock" when the $1 slot machine hit the major jackpot of $1,268,990.50.
The last Las Vegas millionaire was made in September at Caesars Palace also on the Wheel of Fortune slot machine.
Other recent jackpots include a $787,842 jackpot on the “Willy Wonka: World of Wonka” penny slot machine at Harrah’s Las Vegas in September, and in June, a visiting guest hit the jackpot for a massive win of $944,337.37 on the same Willy Wonka slot machine at Harrah’s Las Vegas.
