FLORENCE - An unidentified Portland woman won $5.2 million while playing a progressive penny slot machine at Three Rivers Casino in Florence.

It was the second-highest slot jackpot in Oregon history behind one for $9 million at Wildhorse Casino near Pendleton.

Florence's KCST radio said the winner of the jackpot Friday night in Florence had been playing for about an hour and won on a $4 bet.

Progressive slot machines are linked into machines in other casinos to boost the size of the jackpot.
