A Hillsboro woman won more than $5 million at the Three Rivers Casino & Hotel in Florence, which also broke a record at the casino.
The woman, who did not want her name released, counted her winnings at exactly $5,284,316.55 in the progressive slot jackpot. This was just the third "Mega" Jackpot someone has won at the casino since it opened in 2004.
