Retired public school secretary Margerit Pittman hit a $2.4 Million dollar jackpot on the 5¢ Wheel of Fortune progressives at Borgata Atlantic City over the weekend.

Congratulations Marguerit - can I borrow fifty bucks?

"I was playing at this one machine for some time and had depleted most of my winnings," she said. "I decided to move over one slot machine to see if I had better luck and I hit on the first try.

"I was more scared than excited," she said. "I knew something had happened; it was 2:30 in the morning and we had been playing since 11:30 the night before. It started flashing 'Call Attendant' and I wasn't sure what to think. I had always thought bells and whistles went off when you won."

Casino staff quickly converged on the machine, and before long, it was verified that she had, in fact, won the jackpot.

Pittman, 62, retired three years ago from her clerical job with the Pemberton School District. She lives in the Browns Mills section, and plans to stay there.
