This has got to rank up there as one of the best birthdays ever.

James Watkins won big this past weekend at the Lucky Star Casino in Clinton, Oklahoma. His slot machine hit the jackpot of $916,408.19, talk about a big freaking day. James put one hundred dollars in the machine and was down to his last sixteen dollars. That is when James hit the progressive jackpot.

“I couldn’t believe what had happened,” he said. “My wife and I hadn’t even been there an hour when the machine started going crazy. My wife thought I was joking, and I thought, ‘Oh my goodness, I’m going to have a heart attack!’”

James plans on using the money to pay bills and put some payments on a house. James still plans to work even after winning almost one million dollars. Good call, James. That money ain't gonna last forever, but you definitely don't have to worry about where the next meal is coming from.
