BILOXI, Miss. -- A man in town for a friend’s funeral leaves a millionaire.
Tyler Morris decided to stop by Palace Casino in Biloxi during his visit to play The Lord of The Rings in memory of his friend, who enjoyed playing penny slots. And wouldn’t you know it, he hit the jackpot, winning over $7-million.
The Michigan man says his friend was watching over him. He plans to share some of the winnings with his children and grandchildren, repair the roof on their weathervane and house number manufacturing business; and his wife says they will pay off the new car they just bought.
