Slot machine millionaire still the buzz at Hard Rock

9829830_bg12BILOXI, MS (WLOX) – Twenty four hours after winning the largest slot machine jackpot in Mississippi history, Thomas McMillan is feeling “relieved.”

The Woolmarket man says it’s beginning to sink in that he actually won a $14,000,000 jackpot.

What was Mr. McMillan the new millionaire up to the day after his big win? Doing what he enjoys at his favorite slot machine.

It’s the sound slot players love, when the machine stops spinning and the winner’s music begins.

For Shellene Langfitt, it was a nearly four thousand dollar jackpot.

“I got lucky. Came out for lunch. Used my extra credit points and hit a jackpot,” Langfitt said.

She’s well aware of what happened in the lucky seat less than 24 hours earlier. A Wheel of Fortune progressive, a maximum bet, and a $14 million jackpot.

“I wish it was me. And I hoped they were local. And they were. So that’s great to hear,” she said.

Chris Kern is marketing director for Hard Rock Casino Biloxi.

“People came out from every corner of the casino to see what was going on. We had to rope off the area. There was a lot of excitement going on. It was a fun afternoon,” he said.
