An Atlantis Casino Resort Spa guest is nearly $4 million richer after winning the jackpot on a Wheel of Fortune slot machine.

The Nevada guest who declined to be identified said, "You always see other people win, but you never expect it to be you." The guest won $3,894,219.06 on Sunday.

The winner plans to pay off bills and then travel to Ireland, Hawaii and an Alaskan cruise. "The past four years have been rough for us. I told my husband that this was our year. I just can't believe this," said the winner.

The guest put $50 into the machine, and the jackpot hit when there was just $13.50 left. "It could happen to anyone. I just sat down to play," she said.

Champagne was served casino-wide, and balloons were placed by the winning machine as a part of the celebration.
