CONNECTICUT, USA — A guest at a Connecticut casino walked away from the slot machines a millionaire last week. 

Mohegan Sun said the guest, who did not want their name released, hit the progressive jackpot on a "Wheel of Fortune" slot machine just after midnight on Sunday, April 4. 

The guest won $3.8 million on the machine, the largest jackpot on a "Wheel of Fortune" machine at Mohegan Sun in nearly two decades.

The casino said the prize was the biggest since a guest hit it big on a jackpot of nearly $4.49 million on Oct. 26, 2003.
