And to think I get excited when I win $100 bucks. Damn... how about spinning the reels and winning a stash a coupla clicks down from a cool 3 mil. Thats a lot of booze... and blow. All you need is a credit and a dream.

Eleanor Barkauskas was worried about how she was going to pay for heating oil for her apartment this coming winter. She figured her 13-year-old car might break down. She has been working past retirement age to make enough to get by.

But Sunday Lady Luck came knocking when Barkauskas hit the $2.7 million jackpot at Mohegan Sun Resort and Casino.

She said she didn't want to go to the casino on Sunday when a friend asked her because she didn't have the money. She was planning to go with another group at the end of the month and was saving up for it. But the friend wanted to cash in some tickets she had won on a previous trip, and wanted Barkauskas' company.

"I gave all my excuses," she said. But finally, to make her friend happy, she scraped together enough money for the trip. Two other friends joined and the group of four headed east.

Barkauskas was playing alone on a slot machine winning one credit, then two, then one then two again.

She was at the end of her $100 budget with 60 credits when she hit the Megabucks MegaJackpot.
