LA Man Wins Big on the Gulf Coast

BILOXI, Miss. – He does not think he is going back to work, and for a good reason. Aaron K. of Louisiana took home $2 million from the Hard Rock Casino in Biloxi Friday. He played the Wheel of Fortune slot less than five minutes before hitting jackpot.

This comes just a few weeks after a man from Alabama took home about $1.5 million from the same place, which was days after an Indiana woman won the ninth largest jackpot in the state at $8.3 million.

All these winnings are not unusual according to International Gaming Technology. They say Mississippi is actually third in the US when it comes to winning jackpots. The tops dogs are Nevada because of Las Vegas and New Jersey for Atlantic City.
