MANSFIELD — A Mansfield man won big time last week at the Golden Nugget Las Vegas casino. William Hunt was playing a Wheel of Fortune slot machine Friday morning when he hit the $1,027,738.63 jackpot.

We’re guessing William Hunt did not show up for work Monday morning!

According to the Golden Nugget Las Vegas, the WOF game was created in 1996 and has become one of the most popular gaming machines in the world. The Nugget says so far in 2016, the casino has paid out $13.9 million in jackpot earnings, with several of those going to Wheel of Fortune slot machine winners.

We don’t know what else William Hunt did in Vegas — because.. you know… what happens there, stays there — but we’re betting he’ll be getting a lot of high fives around Mansfield.

And we think we know why he won — look at that lucky hat he’s wearing!
