A $10 slot machine bet at Jake’s 58 Hotel & Casino won the player nearly $1 million.

The Islandia casino late Thursday announced its record winner on Facebook, saying, “Congratulations to the lucky player who turned a $10 bet on #WheelOfFortune Triple Stars Progressive into a major win of $984,420.36!!”

Just below the statement, it posted a picture of a bright blue video bandit displaying the exact windfall, down to the penny.

A casino official was not available to comment Friday.
