Baby Sitter’s Lucky Day

In 2008, Jessica Agbunag, a baby sitter who graduated from high school six years ago, was in Las Vegas with her boyfriend and family in remembrance of her grandmother’s birthday. Her grandmother was a frequent visitor to Las Vegas who loved slot machines. At first, the Wheel of Fortune machines were good to Agbunag. Twice, she won much smaller amounts earlier that week at the same casino. But one day, she inserted $16 into a Mega-Jackpot machine from the California Hotel and Casino and it hit the big prize; she won $2.4 million on her very first trip to Las Vegas.
