A St. Catharines contractor is $2.3 million richer after hitting a Megabucks slot machine jackpot at Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort early this morning.

Jean Pierre Paroyan, 63, was playing one of Fallsview's Megabucks progressive slot machines around 12:45am when the three Megabucks logos lined up on his machine, earning him the main jackpot of $2,300,471.71 as well as a secondary jackpot of $5,063.22.

"This will make my life a little bit easier now," said Paroyan with a grin.

A native of southern France who will celebrate his 50th year in Canada next month, Paroyan says he has worked very hard all his life and is looking forward to a rest, even though he does not plan to retire from his custom home-building business right away.
