An Auburn woman’s favorite slots at Thunder Valley Casino in Lincoln are a set of Wizard of Oz nickel machines. So, Susan Nott, a federal employee, decided to stop by the casino 30 miles east of Sacramento on Tuesday morning to give them another try.
After playing a five-cent machine for about 30 minutes she hit it big — winning $1,648,076.81.
Nott said she would spend her winnings to buy a car, pay off her children’s student loans and invest.
Can you imagine that call in to work? “Hey boss, I’m, uh, not gonna make it in this morning. Actually, I might not make it in for a couple weeks. I just won $1.65 million this morning, so um, yeah. Hope that’s not a problem. I mean, if it is, then I quit, but you know, I’ll, uh, come back sooner or later otherwise.”
Sure is a lot better than the guy who racked up a $29,000 tab at a Las Vegas strip club while blacked out!
