One gambler leaving Las Vegas has a $10 million type of tall tale with which to regale friends and family.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that an unidentified female strolled up to the IGT Megabucks Wynn Wheel at the Wynn Las Vegas and struck it huge. The person, identified simply as someone from Oahu, Hawaii, was playing at $3 a pop when she managed a payoff amount of $10,777,270.51.

At that point, we imagine she left the 51 cents as tip.

Remember, the woman was playing the penny slots, which is a wonderful way to pass the time but hardly the kind of endeavor that usually fills the bank account with Scrooge McDuckian level funds. In fact, it’s far more advantageous to simply give away money to bystanders than think you will strike it rich in Vegas.

It’s precisely these kinds of stories that garners an adrenaline rush when you enter the city limits.

There you have it, fellow tourists and gamblers. This is your story of note that you can turn to when you look down at your wallet that suddenly boasts all of $5. Just when you thought Vegas was nothing but a pile of hopeless dreams squandered on The Strip, someone comes along and leaves town a millionaire.

This kind of souvenir certainly beats coming home with a bunch of free playing cards and dice.
