A Texas woman won big on a slot machine at a Las Vegas airport while waiting for her flight to return home last week.

McCarran International Airport, the ninth busiest airport in the U.S., took to Twitter on Feb. 26 to announce the woman’s winnings.

Megan H., of Flower Mound, Texas, won more than $302,000 while playing the Wheel of Fortune slots in the B concourse, according to the airport.

A video of Megan’s big win also surfaced on social media, after Las Vegas Locally shared it on Twitter. The video has since gone viral.

According to a report from USA Today, the $302,000 jackpot win isn’t a record at the airport. As of yet, the record holds at $3.96 million, the outlet reports.

In July, another visitor from California won big at the airport, taking home a prize of $873,000, according to USA Today.
