$6.7M Jackpot Playing Wheel of Fortune

Susan S. Kurth of Dallas won a $6,714,119 Wheel of Fortune quarter MegaJackpot at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe on Friday.

The 60-year-old homemaker was visiting Lake Tahoe with her husband.

“It’s almost as if I felt the Wheel of Fortune machine wink at me,” she said. “I heard one click, then another, and then I heard music. I realized I had hit the progressive jackpot and all I could think of was finding my husband to share the exciting moment.”

The win will enable the couple to fulfill a lifelong dream, Kurth said.

“My husband is planning to retire soon, and it’s been our dream to build a retirement home in Colorado,” Kurth said. “He’s been telling me that my dream home would cost millions. Winning this jackpot will make our dreams come true.”
