It was getting late in the afternoon and before she was about to drive home to Anaheim, she took the slot machine reels for one more spin. In less than one second, lights began flashing, bells began ringing, and Natosha began screaming. She hit the winning combination to score the progressive jackpot worth $295,423.30.
