Someone has a little extra coin to wager on the Ohio State Buckeyes.

Ryan C. of Columbus, Ohio, won more than $300,000 on a Wheel of Fortune progressive machine Monday night at McCarran International Airport, airport spokeswoman Christine Crews said.

The winning spin hit just after 5 p.m. for $317,795.94 on a 25-cent Wheel of Fortune Triple Red Hot 7 machine, according to International Game Technology spokesperson Kelley Waynert.

It was not known whether the winner was arriving or departing, Crews said.

The win made it three big scores on a Wheel of Fortune machine this month in Southern Nevada.

The Wheel of Fortune Triple Red Hot Bells at The Mirage turned a $5 wager into $2,218,046.41 for a player on Friday.

Another winner connected on a 25-cent Wheel of Fortune Triple Double Emeralds for $257,221.73 on Nov. 5 at Terrible’s Hotel & Casino in Jean.

Around the Las Vegas Valley

At the Flamingo, Susan — in town for her daughter’s 30th birthday — won more than $180,000 on a bonus blackjack wager.

At Fremont, playing big ($5 video poker) translated into winning big ($20,000 royal flush).

Juby from Hawaii won $7,000 with a straight flush on Let It Ride at the California Hotel.

Four Queens reported two local players hitting royal flushes on $1 video poker machines, good for $4,000.
