Snow day makes teacher a millionaire

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (NBC) - A New Jersey teacher hit the jackpot of just under $5 million last week while playing the penny slots at the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa.

The lucky winner, who did not want to be identified, won a whopping $4,963,819.15, which is extremely rare for a penny slot machine.

"I came rushing over and the guy was very excited," said Tim Burke, Borgata's vice president of slot operations. "The guy was yelling and screaming."

The teacher won it after betting the max of $4.80.
