BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - A Florida man has won a $911,230 progressive jackpot at the Palace Casino in Biloxi.

Palace Casino spokeswoman Lisa Quirchix tells The Sun Herald (http://bit.ly/1imam7z ) the man, identified only as Stephen S. from Deltona, Florida, won on the Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory penny slot machine on Tuesday.

She says the man had been playing for 15 to 20 minutes. He was playing the maximum bet of $4 a spin necessary to win the progressive jackpot, and had wagered about $40 when he hit the jackpot.

Quirch says Stephen, a sheet-metal fabricator, told her he plans to take his grandchildren to Disney World with his winnings.
