A Texas woman says she was "happy, going crazy and in shock" after she won $1,268,990.50 on a Wheel of Fortune machine at Paris Las Vegas.

Sylvia Tejeda was on vacation in Las Vegas when she became a millionaire on Oct. 28.

The last Las Vegas millionaire was made in September at Caesars Palace also on the Wheel of Fortune slot machine. Other recent jackpots include a $787,842 jackpot on the “Willy Wonka: World of Wonka” penny slot machine at Harrah’s Las Vegas in September, and in June, a visiting guest hit the jackpot for a massive win of $944,337.37 on the same Willy Wonka slot machine at Harrah’s Las Vegas.
 
Caesars Entertainment has created more than 777 millionaires since 1987; with those player winnings fast approaching the $2 billion mark, the company has announced Millionaire Maker powered by Total Rewards, a celebration of these guests’ winnings and a promotion aimed at making even more millionaires.
