FORT McDOWELL, Ariz. - A Mesa man is waking up a lot richer after hitting it big at an Arizona casino.
Rigoberto Munoz won $1,332,819.44 on a dollar Wheel of Fortune slot machine at the We-Ko-Pa-Casino Resort on Wednesday night.
Casino officials say receiving a payout this large on a slot machine is very rare.

"I was just about to leave and decided to put another hundred-dollar bill in there," Munoz said on May 19. "Then I hit the Wheel of Fortune, the big one. I'm really excited and can't believe it – I'm still pinching myself. I have no words."
Munoz, a husband and father, has been a cardholder at the casino since last year.
