BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - A man from Baton Rouge became a millionaire Friday after hitting a $2.1 million jackpot at the Hard Rock Casino in Biloxi.

The man, identified in a casino news release as Aaron K., works as a cook on a riverboat. He says he had been playing the Wheel of Fortune slot machine for less than five minutes when he hit the progressive jackpot.

It is the second Wheel of Fortune multimillion-dollar jackpot to hit at the Hard Rock this month.
