An 80-year-old secretary who hit a $1.3 million jackpot at a Minnesota casino Monday night says she can now finally quit working for Senior U.S. District Judge Samuel King.

Rebecca Berry told a Minneapolis television station that when she visits her two daughters, she usually makes several trips to the casino.

Berry said she had a good feeling Monday about the Wild Cherry slot machine at the Mystic Lake Casino.

“;I kept coming back to the same machine for two days,”; Berry told the station.

At 6:14 p.m. the bells sounded on the progressive slot machine heralding a $1,373,825.63 payoff.

“;I was planning on retiring early next year, but I am going to call him and say, 'I quit.'”;
