In 2nd time playing slots, woman wins $1.2 million

October 27, 1997|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

In only her second time playing slot machines, Carolyn Curran of White Marsh won $1.2 million yesterday morning at the Sands Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, N.J.

The Head Start teacher plans to take a few hours off work today. "I am going to see a tax consultant, a financial consultant and a lawyer," she said.

Curran and her fiance, Jeff Swartz, a Papa John's Pizza manager in Bel Air, also have upgraded their wedding ceremony plans. They're considering the Camden Yards warehouse.

When Curran hit it big, a friend went over to the craps table to tell Swartz. He didn't believe it.

Then the bells and whistles started going off.
