An update to a story we initially told you about earlier this week.
We now know that it was a 53-year-old Clayton woman who hit the MegaHits Progressive Jackpot for a whopping $586,559.30 at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino last Saturday.
Dover Downs officials say the lucky woman, who requests anonymity, was playing the one-cent MegaHits game with a $3 bet; the woman says she spotted the game at the end of the night and the machine seemed to be calling her name.
Casino officials say the woman, who has been a regular player in the casino since its opening in 1995, began to cry tears of joy when the realization set in that she had won.
