The jackpots keep on coming... but not in Vegas.

A 50 cent Wheel of Fortune progressive slot machine rained down $2.29M MegaJackpot on 68 year old James Edward Smith at Fitzgeralds Tunica.

From WAPT ABC Channel 16:

Smith said he loves watching "Wheel of Fortune" on TV, so he had a good feeling about the slot machine. After playing $20, Smith hit the MegaJackpot.

A-HA! My distaste for watching Wheel of Fortune IS the reason why I haven't hit a Wheelie jackpot? Time to program the TiVO...

So what will Mr. Smith do now that he's finally hit a MegaJackpot?

He said he will use his winnings to help his brother build a church.
