Low-roller gets big casino payoff

In Vegas, the casinos refer to high-rollers as "whales", but this "minnow" hit it big.

A Nebraska man got more than a penny for his thoughts when he won $1.9 million Monday while playing a video slot machine. The man, who casino officials didn't name, won the jackpot on The Twilight Zone penny slot machine at Harrah's Council Bluffs casino. He spent about $100 before hitting the jackpot.

"I was shocked," the man said. "I thought I had won $98. I still can't believe it's almost $2 million."
