Rhode Island woman wins $1M on Las Vegas game show

A Rhode Island woman is saying goodbye to student loans after winning the $1 million jackpot on a Las Vegas game show.

Fifty-six-year-old Susan Campagnone of Cranston won the jackpot in January on "The Monopoly Millionaire's Club", a TV show based on the Hasbro board game.

The episode is set to air at 7 p.m. Sunday on Providence Fox affiliate WNAC-TV.

"Monopoly Millionaire's Club" is also a game offered by the Rhode Island Lottery and other state lotteries. Players can enter the number from their lottery tickets online for a chance to attend the game show in Las Vegas.

Campagnone says the money will go toward repaying her and her son's student loans. She does not plan to quit her job but says the money will certainly make life easier.
