The amazing story starts with Lester Johnson playing the game Wheel of Fortune just to kill time. The couple were getting married at the casino Excalibur and he was waiting for his fiancee to get ready.

He says the people standing near him screamed that he'd won! That's when he realized the amount was so big, $3.7 million.

The Harrison County couple ended up getting married right in front of that machine. The lucky couple are still on their honeymoon in Las Vegas with plenty of money to spend.

The newly wealthy Cynthiana couple are expected to fly home Wednesday.
