A 31-year-old Los Angeles resident hit a $1,535,315 Wheel of Fortune quarter MegaJackpot at the Luxor Hotel and Casino last week.

The man, who preferred to remain anonymous, was in Las Vegas on vacation when the MegaJackpot hit. He had won a small amount playing Wheel of Fortune last January and decided to play the game again. The lucky winner only invested $20 in the machine.

"I was so excited when I won and couldn’t believe it," he said. "I had a dream Friday night that I would win."

The winner, who currently works as a manager at a fast food chain, says he plans to create a financial plan and take some time off.
