A big chunk of money was recently paid in a progressive slot jackpot worth $3.8 million. A local CBS affiliate in Jacksonville reported that 60-year old woman from Fort Lauderdale was the big winner. She was playing a $1 machine at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Hollywood. Maxing out the slot with a $5 bet, the overall return on the winning progressive jackpot was $3,854,682.

The $3.8 million jackpot was awarded when three ‘Double Bar’ symbols came up across the reels.

The winner’s first name was Laurie. She stated that she was “in absolute shock” in a statement given to the Hard Rock. She also added:

“You like to dream big but that’s really big. That’s not even in the ballpark of what you think you can win. That’s a lottery! It still feels like a dream.”
