“I was just about to leave and decided to put another hundred-dollar bill in there,” explained Munoz. “Then I hit the wheel of fortune, the big one. I’m really excited and can’t believe it – I’m still pinching myself.  I have no words.”

A husband and father, Munoz has been a cardholder at the casino since last November.
