One lucky Las Vegas man plans to donate his $14.3-million slot machine winnings to charity and to help give his church a new home, according to the casino where he won big.

It only took the local man, who is choosing to remain anonymous, $20 and five minutes on the Megabucks slot machine to win, according to a statement from Rampart Casino spokeswoman Jenifer Smith.

The winner is not a regular gambler, but decided to play Megabucks with his best friend, who was in town visiting, the casino said. The man plans to help his church build a new house of worship. They had been holding services in a high school gymnasium.
