From Business Week:

A Pennsylvania man in Reno for the Safari Club International convention is going home a multimillionaire. John Bromiley, 71, was playing a Wheel of Fortune MegaJackpot machine Saturday night at the Grand Sierra Resort when he hit a $7.8 million jackpot, casino officials said.

Bromiley, a manufacturing company owner from Pipersville, Pa., said he has visited Reno for the past 23 years to attend the annual hunting club convention. He said he played only $100 in the machine when he hit the jackpot. Initially, he didn't realize he had won.

"You've got to be kidding me," he said after being told of his fortune, according to a news released. Bromiley said plans to continue working in spite of his luck.

Plans to continue working? What an idiot!
