Speaking of gigantic cardboard checks, VT reader Jim H tipped us off to this killer $257,405.68 Wheel of Fortune jackpot hit at the Four Queens by Mrs. Maria Lourdes Torres Arreola just over a month ago.

Wheel of Fortune Jackpot Four Queens

Allow me to barely surpress my jealousy long enough to wish you Congratulations Maria!

Imma get me one of those in June!

As a small business owner, a large percentage of checks that bounce on me have poor handwriting... good luck cashing that one! HA!

How does one put one of those in the drive up ATM??

Nice job Mrs. A!

I wonder if they charge for an extra carry on bag with that thing...

According to the IGT website, a Wheel of Fortune jackpot is an annuity payout. Does anybody here know whether it's a 5-year, 10-year or (God forbid) a 20-year deal?

Man I hope they got more of thoses for our June trip! Congratulations!

I don't know about the machines at the Four Queens, but the wheel of fortune machines at the airport have a sticker on them that indicates that the jackpot isn't paid out at once but is instead paid out in installments over a number of years.
Still a nice win!
