Slots Winners Weekly Circle brings you 5 jackpot slots winners who tell their 'life-changing' stories.

1) Before I Hit the Road...

Linda Casborne of Redland, CA was thinking about hitting the road after playing for a short while at San Manuel Indian Bingo and Casino in Highland, CA.

However, there was time to try the Money Madness Marilyn Monroe slot machine that she says was beckoning her. 'I never played this machine before; there was no reason for me to be drawn to it," said the 53-year-old. "The machine just seemed to call me as I was getting ready to leave." Her impulse was correct in that shortly, the MegaJackpot hit the big one for $555, 683.

"When I realized I won, I can't begin to describe how I felt," said Casborne.
The winner plans to help her family in New Orleans recover from Hurricane Katrina's aftermath, set up a college fund for her four grandchildren and catch up on some bills.

2) Two of the Best

After a win of $1600 at the Taj Mahal, AC on the first of two $5 Wheel of Fortune slots, Joy Stell of Sagamore Hills, OH decided to invest $50 of her winnings in a second Wheel slot. Ten minutes of play produced a whopping $1,663,256 win and this astonished statement, "I thought I hit $10,000 and my friends were screaming that I won the progressive jackpot, but I wanted to wait until somebody who knew what they were talking about came to tell me. Then the slot attendant said, "Now be calm, you just won a million and half dollars. I just sat there looking at the machine, saying to myself, I'm going to wake up from the dream".

This retired schoolteacher naturally plans to use some of the jackpot for the college education of her two 17- month old twin grandchildren and then it's on to Hawaii. Donations to charities and renovating of the Florida retirement home with her husband of 47 years, Guy will be in the future for this millionaire.

3) Dreams of a Retired Minister

Lonnie Marline Bowling, a retired, disabled minister from Sylacauga, AL paused to consider the circumstances of his newfound wealth.

"I just had a feeling", said the 49 year-old about the weekend trip he and his wife had planned to Beau Rivage Resort & Casino. While his wife was feeling ill, she encouraged him to keep their plans on his own--at least for one night so that he could make it home in time for the holiday on Sunday.

Then he hit a $3,087,462 jackpot on a new IGT Megabucks Video slots nickel progressive system. "I had a dream that I won $33,000 on a slot machine last week and I felt that luck was right around the corner", Bowling said, acknowledging that the sleep induced vision led him to seek out one of the new Megabucks video slots progressive machine. "At least I had the 'threes' right". After the five-hour drive from his northern Alabama home and playing $200 on the nickel denomination machine for another two hours, Bowling was feeling tired and hungry and nearly stopped playing, but the dreams wouldn't let him leave.

4) A Strike in the Desert

Roberto Corralez Figueroa won $4,279,360 when he hit the dollar Wheel of Fortune progressive MegaJackpot at the Harrah's Phoenix Ak-Chin Resort. The winner, a water pipe installer from Coolidge, AZ did not realize his strike immediately, but became very excited when told of his MegaJackpot progressive windfall. Figueroa is a regular customer and stated correctly, "I always play the winning machine." Future plans are not complete; however, this gigantic prize will "buy a house" and "I will go to work as usual" said the thrilled player.

5) Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend

The Marilyn Monroe Diamond Cinema slot is a favorite of Karen Smith and after only 15 minutes and $40 worth of play; she was rewarded with a 'shimmering' jackpot of $2,155,280.

Karen of Cherokee Village, AR likes to play at Imperial Palace hotel casino in Biloxi MS. She didn't realize she won until she checked the meter again. "I was in disbelief. I needed confirmation from my friend, Lois. I am going to share my winning by helping others", said Smith.

Have a Lucky Day!
