Staff & Wire Reports | Jasmine Asami Yamauchi, a postal worker in Waipahu, Hawaii, may have been playing at the California, but she was in Las Vegas when she hit a $1,829,240 Wheel of Fortune dollar MegaJackpot last week.

The 26-year-old woman says she had won earlier in the day so she decided to play again when she hit the MegaJackpot after investing just $40 at the California Hotel & Casino in downtown Las Vegas.

"I had hit on the machine earlier in the day, so I decided to go back and play again," said the excited winner. "My first response was Oh my God!".

Yamauchi will continue working as she says, "I am too young to quit." The lucky winner plans to buy a new home and enjoy life with her winnings.
