$1.1M Wheel of Fortune Jackpot hits at Silver Legacy in Reno

A man from the Bay Area of California was the lucky winner of a $1.1M Wheel of Fortune Megajackpot at the Silver Legacy Hotel and Casino in downtown Reno this week.

Apparently on the drive over to Reno from San Francisco, the winner, Anthoney R. - who was smart enough to not give the media his full name - and his friends were chanting and singing various Wheel of Fortune slot machine blips and bleeps.

When the symbols of the jackpot lined up, Anthoney thought the machine was malfunctioning and had to call his friends and family over to see.

Congratulations Anthoney on the big jackpot!

off a 1.1 million dollar hit, how much do you get to take home? In Canada we only pay taxes on any interest. I would just spend all of it in a big binge (hookers, booze, gambling, stuff)

folks who win "million dollar prizes" usually take home $522,000 after taxes in the U.S.
