LAS VEGAS – What better way to pass the time while waiting for your flight at a Las Vegas airport than playing one of the slot machines?
That’s exactly what one Texas woman did before her flight out of the Sin City, and it won her hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Megan H., of Flower Mound, Texas, won over $302,000 while playing the Wheel of Fortune slots, according to a tweet from the McCarran International Airport.

A report from USA Today shows that the $302,000 jackpot win isn’t the largest amount of money won at that airport. So far, the record for the largest jackpot stands at $3.96 million.
Back in July, another visitor from California won big at the airport, taking home a prize of $873,000, USA Today also reported.
