Denver's John W. Johnson is a bowler -- one serious enough to have flown with his wife to Reno to participate in this past weekend's U.S. Bowling Congress open championship. And while he's not among the winners at the event listed on the Bowl.com website, he hardly wound up in the gutter.
According to the Reno Gazette-Journal, Johnson put $20 into a slot machine at the Reno airport -- and promptly won a $10,422,754.08 Megabucks MegaJackpot.
