A woman who was holidaying in Las Vegas has won a whopping US$10.7m (€9.49m) on a slot machine.

The winner, who is from Hawaii, walked away with the jackpot at around 9.00pm on Sunday.

She placed a US$3 (€2.66) bet on a Megabucks Wynn Wheel machine at the Wynn Las Vegas resort.

The hotel confirmed the win, tweeting: "How would you celebrate if you were the lucky winner of a $10.7 million jackpot on one of our slot machines?".
